CCCT - Combined "Brayton and Rankin" Cycle Combustion Turbine and HRSG License and Endorsement:

 

NASOE

The CCCT - Combined (Brayton and Rankin) Cycle: Combustion Turbine (CT) with AC Generator(s) and HRSG with Steam Turbine Generators License Program is the most difficult license to achieve. No only does it encompass combustion turbines and AC generators, but also power engineering; however, make no mistake a HRSG (heat recovery steam generator) is no simple boiler and these facilities operate lean with self-starting/self motivated 3rds.

CCCT Engineer: Chief Engineer

Institutions

A Chief Engineer license is intended for a Management level role with Oversite Role of one (1) or more sites, having overall responsibility, including but not limited to ISO, GADS, employees, equipment, financial budgeting, and DPCC programs.
