Cochran is a CEA Approved Training Provider

Benefits of Cochran Training

Our small classes and close personal attention deliver a near perfect PASS RATE on BOAS Courses!! Why book anyone else.

Efficiency:  A drop of just 0.5% boiler efficiency could cost thousands of pounds in excess fuel usage, but a Cochran trained boiler operator is taught how to keep the boiler running at peak performance.

Safety: The HSE and Insurance Companies require proof of competence. Ensure that those responsible for day-to-day boiler operation, or overall management, have been trained to be fully conversant with the risks, safe procedures and best practice in the boilerhouse.

Environmental: Ensure you comply with current legislation by training your personnel in the correct procedures to minimise emissions.

Morale & Motivation: Well trained staff not only delivery better results through operational efficiency, but operators who feel more valued have higher morale and are better motivated workers.

Cochran Course Details


Boiler Operation Accreditation Scheme (BOAS)

Available for Steam, Hot Water and Water Tube

In association with Combustion Engineering Association (CEA), this intensive course is designed to provide knowledge of current legislation and guidance (including BG01), relevant to the safe operation and management of industrial boiler plant.

To attend the course candidates need to provide evidence that they have the necessary boiler operation and /or management experience.  

The course consists of 10 modules which cover what boiler operators are required to know to undertake their duties safely and efficiently, plus the additional knowledge required by responsible managers. The candidates take examinations and meet with an independent assessor to check their knowledge and experience. On successful completion of the assessment process the candidates are CEA accredited for 5 years.

Cochran provide a comprehensive training manual covering the full course content, as well as including copies of the key guidance and legislation, which will act as a handy future reference. 

Courses available are:-  

Five Day BOAS Category 2 Steam 
Four Day BOAS Category 1 Hot Water
Seven Day BOAS Dual Category 1 & 2 Steam & Hot Water 
Site Specific BOAS Category 3 Water Tube

We hold courses throughout the year at our training centres or alternatively we can attend your site if there are suitable numbers.


BOAS Re-Accreditation Courses

After 5 years the CEA accreditation needs to be renewed to ensure candidates are up to date with changes in legislation and guidance, book into our re-accreditation courses before your certificate expires.

Three Day Hot-Water (Category 1) Re-accreditation

Five Day Dual Steam & Hot Water (Category 1 & 2) Re-accreditation 


Boiler Operation, Maintenance & Safety Awareness Courses (BOMSA)

Available in 1 day, 2 day or Hotel based

Primarily for Boiler Operators, Maintenance Staff, Plant Technicians, personnel responsible for Health and Safety and Engineers.   This an intensive course designed to provide a thorough grounding in the everyday operation and maintenance of boilers, burners and boiler auxiliary equipment.  The course also covers relevant Health and Safety issues, fault identification and emergency situations, as well as essential daily and weekly routines, boiler valves and fittings, water treatment, combustion issues. The ultimate aim of the course to make sure that the plant can be operated safely, efficiently and economically.

The course length, depicts the varying levels of detail the Trainer can offer on subjects.  Another factor is, if Course is at your site or our Cochran Training Centre, we can be more hands on and specific.  We use this course as a foundatiuon for undertaking the 5 day Accredited BOAS course.


Boilerhouse Water Treatment Awareness (BWTA)

Available as 1 day Site based or Hotel based


Primarily for Boiler Operators and Managers who wish to better understand and manage the water quality of their boilers and the contractors supplying such services.

Correct water treatment is critical to safe and efficient operation of an industrial boiler, as well as it’s longevity. Inadequate (or non-existent) water treatment can lead to high blowdown rates and fuel consumption, poor steam quality, damage to the boiler leading to expensive repairs and in the worst cases personnel injury and fatality. 

The course aims to give boiler operators and managers, who are not specialist chemists, knowledge of basic concepts, equipment, routine testing and recording of boiler water treatment. 

It does not replace the need for regular visits by water treatment specialists but will enable attendees to better understand the daily checks and routines that they need to carry out and why; to recognise earlier if things need attending to; to be able to better understand, and if necessary challenge, the service and value for money provided by your water treatment suppliers.  

The course covers why we need to treat boiler feedwater and condensate, consequences of poor water treatment, feedwater Pre-Treatment systems, deaeration, boiler blowdown and Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), boiler water pH, chemical dosing, water sampling, daily checks and recording and the treatment of scale and corrosion
