ABC Virtual Operator School Module 8 pt 2: Safety Part 2

February 15 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST

This February, ABC will be holding our only planned virtual ABC Operator School program this year. Designed to help operators optimize their biogas systems and reduce costly mistakes, students will attend seven afternoon sessions throughout the month, covering 9 modules and 21 PDH hours of training from the industry’s most expert operators. You’ll learn the skills you need to excel on the job as a digester operator, including how to repair, maintain, and troubleshoot biogas system components.

Our virtual platform will allow you to video chat with instructors and fellow students face-to-face just by turning on your camera and microphone, no travel required! We’re especially excited to share our 360 degree tour of two digesters, given by the actual operators running those sites. These tours allow your operators to ask meaningful questions and gain a firsthand experience of a successful anaerobic digester system.

ABC’s Operator Training School is required coursework in order to participate in ABC’s Operator Certification Program, which is a form of accreditation for digester operators and the only such certification in the US. This class covers ALL requires modules for certification. As the biogas industry grows, policymakers may soon require anaerobic digesters to be run by certified operators. Keep your operators on the cutting-edge by getting them certified after the course.

Tickets can be purchased for individual sessions or for the full course. **BOTH MODULES OF SAFETY MUST BE TAKEN (FEB 13 and 15) TO SATISFY THE OBLIGATION FOR OPERATOR CERTIFICATION.**

Module 8 – Safety

The safety module usually lasts a full day. We’ve offered to past students to try to reduce the time we spend on this important topic, but universally, we’re told, all this time is needed.  We’ll cover H2S dangers, lockout/tagout, operating in confined spaces, rescue procedures, hot work, flammable and explosive properties, hazard communications, process safety and security, MSDSes and more.
