Education & Training

Education & Training SEATT Training Program Graduates First Class Petro-chemical operators committed to advancing careers EARLY THIS YEAR, the Stationary Engineer Apprentice Training and Trust (SEATT) graduated its first class of operators at Western Refining in El Paso, Texas. During six weeks of intense training, the students were instructed in topics that all petro-chemical operators need to know to be safe, efficient, and productive. “It was challenging to get all the training completed in the time we were allowed. However, everyone was ready for the next step in their career,” explained Local 351 Trainer Jay Clark. The bedrock of the SEATT program are the program’s trainers. SEATT recruited highly skilled and experienced operators from the refinery to instruct the students. Local 351 Union Chairman Lauren Titus was one of those talented instructors. Classes ranged from Basic Hand Tools to Valves, Boilers, Reactors, Distillation, Turbines, Compressors, Instrumentation, Furnaces, Cooling Towers, Heat Exchangers, Physics, Chemistry, Safe Work Permitting and Hot Work Permitting, as well as various other subjects. The NTF Blackboard program was used when the SEATT program was being designed. Blackboard’s ability to be tailored to unique equipment, and units, in the refinery industry has proven to be a valuable asset. SEATT looks forward to continuing to work with participating employers in establishing a highly skilled pool of future petro-chemical operators. IMAGINE WHAT’S NEXT.
