Whether you are taking a Minnesota Special Engineer or Grade C licensing exam, this course will cover what you need to know to pass your boiler exam. Study materials and practice tests will be provided during class to ensure your success. This course includes at least one tour of the DCTC boilers room.
We can also customize this course to include high pressure boiler licensing. When you register, be sure to indicate which license exam you’re planning to take.
