Course Description



Mark Maintenance Advanced

This course will provide the knowledge required to properly maintain your Mark™ Ve/VIe keeping your units available and reliable. It is 100% hands-on, realistic and practical.  This is the third of five courses offered in our progressive series on the Mark™ Ve/VIe Control.  This series of courses is the perfect progression in learning your Mark™ Ve/VIe Control giving you the knowledge and confidence each step along the way to perform your job responsibilities to your fullest potential.   As the third course in the Mark™ Ve/VIe Control series this course is an evolutionary step from Operation and Troubleshooting. This course answers the following questions and many more.

What if you unit is in a critical condition?  It’s shutting down, running back, worse it has tripped or you cannot obtain a ready to start. Using your existing troubleshooting skills, or those gained from the Advanced Mark™ Ve/VIe Troubleshooting course, you have isolated the cause to a singular devise, but how is it to be properly calibrated or replaced?  Should you, or how do you, force its variable into a safe state so it can be replaced and what are the consequences?  You have received an alarm indicating a valve failure, how can it be stroked, tested, calibrated?  What are the differences between pneumatic and hydraulic?  You have determined the probable cause of a diagnostic alarm; open or shorted circuit, blown fuse, voter mismatch, how is it to be repaired?

GE Documentation will be taught and used throughout the course, the same way your unit is designed to be operated & maintained.

This course is part of a new series of advanced classes that expands on what was formerly Regional Training.  This course is intended for industrial gas and steam turbine users and NOT for customers with Aeroderivative applications
