WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The Boiler Operation Accreditation Scheme (BOAS) provides national
accreditation for industrial boiler operators and boiler plant managers.
The BG01 guidelines suggest that all competent persons and owners/
managers should be trained to the BOAS standard. Spirax Sarco is a
licensed and approved BOAS training provider. This course provides training
to the BOAS syllabus and includes the written examination1. Candidates are
also interviewed by a third party (KIWA) assessor during the course2.
Successful candidates may use the designatory letters “Cert IBO”
(Certified Industrial Boiler Operator) or “Dip BOM” (Diploma in Boiler Plant
Operation Management). Candidates from both award categories take the
same course and written papers3. Interviews are specific to each award.
Delegates taking the Cert IBO and Dip BOM will achieve Dual
Award status.
All awards are valid for five years, after which a renewal course
becomes necessary4 .
The course covers CAT 2 (shell) boilers although CAT 3 (water tube) can
also be accommodated.
