First Class Gas Turbine / Combustion Turbine Engineer

A First Class Gas Turbine Engineer (Simple Cycle Combustion Turbines) (SCCT) is intended for a Management level/Supervisory role in the power generating station utilizing the Brayton process of generating electricity or driving compressor, having overall responsibility for the entire plant including employees, equipment and financial budgeting.

The fees for the First Class Gas Turbine Engineer (Simple Cycle Combustion Turbines) are listed in the license application, and engineers can apply for a reciprocal license, which is based on holding a license from recognized State, Municipal, Federal and Third-Party licensing entities.

The qualification to sit for examination are the individual must have 18 months in a combined cycle plant or 1 year in a combined cycle plant and 6 months holding a 2nd Class Simple Cycle Combustion Turbine Engineer certificate.

The exam is based on what a Shift Supervisor (1st Class) should be able to do such as comprehensive thinking and more specifically analysis and synthesize of gas turbine conditions. The examination is a 50-Question test in a 1-1/2-hour period. The components of the exam is made up of the following:
