Industrial Maintenance Technician Courses

“Very time effective method of training with practical approach. Mr. Rod Corea with his expertise in the field and professionally organized training sessions makes learning process natural and easy.”

Andrew Popiel, Calibration Technologist at UBE Automotive in Sarnia, Ontario. Andrew successfully completed an IMT course with NRG in June 2007

“You reached your objectives in your training program as after a year I still recall clearly most of what you taught us and all of what we were taught safety wise. After having a gas certificate 3 times this was the first time I actually understood what was going on. I sent a note to Bob Burmaster last year after the course explaining to him how beneficial it was and highly recommending it.”
Doug Kennedy, Electrical Maintenance Technician at Algoma Steel, Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. Doug successfully completed an IMT course with NRG in May 2005. The above email was received from Doug in May 2006.

Custom Courses

“Another great course that met our requirements exactly. The guys were very impressed. We’ll have you back again next year.”
Mike Herman, Assistant Chief Operating Engineer, UWO Boiler Plant, London Ontario

The following endorsement was provided in a letter form Gerry Lambert, Training Officer at Bruce Power Generating Station in Tiverton, Ontario. A custom course was created to serve the needs of their Instrumentation Technicians regarding combustion analysis on their heating boilers.

The only complaint is that we required this training three years ago when we went on line. Participants to the course state your course has provided:

Management and staff found real value in your course delivery. Course will become mandatory for all new staff assigned to the Bruce Steam Plant.”

Consultation Services

“Without your expertise on TSSA’s training requirements we could never have got the training we needed in the time required. To train 45 technicians in the short period allowed was amazing and the reviews were all favourable. Thanks again”
Glenn Turner, Training Coordinator at Bruce Power Generating Station in Tiverton Ontario. NRG Resources conducted all aspects of the IMT training at Bruce Power from initial assessment through SSA approval, course delivery and final certification. The course is now regularly offered to new technicians.

“Rod’s assistance in getting through the maze of a TSSA field approval on our CharMarker was invaluable. We couldn’t have done it without him”
