Commonly asked questions from aspiring Stationary Engineers

What is the difference between a low-pressure boiler license, a high-pressure license and a stationary engineer license?

In the State of Ohio if a boiler has 360ft2 of heating surface or above, a licensed operator is required. The type of license required is dependent on 2 things: The pressure the boiler operates at, and/or the type of equipment connected to the boiler.

If the boiler operates at 15 psig or less, a low-pressure license is a minimum requirement. If the boiler operates at greater than 15 psig, a high-pressure license is a minimum requirement. If a steam engine or steam turbine is connected to the boiler, a stationary engineers license is required.

A licensed Stationary Engineer can operate any boiler in the State of Ohio.

What are the requirements to get a Stationary Engineer Boiler Operator license?

In Ohio, a boiler operator must acquire 2,000 hours of field experience working under the supervision of a Stationary Engineer holding a current Ohio license and must pass the state exam.

Or, 700 hours of operating experience associated in direct care, custody and control of the system load, turbine speed, lubrication, temperatures, and vibrations of a steam turbine exceeding thirty horsepower or 1,000 hours of operating experience associated in direct care, custody and control of the fuel, combustion air, water level, steam pressure, system load, and supporting equipment of a steam boiler exceeding fifteen pounds per square inch and the successful completion of a steam boiler and steam turbine operation course approved by the State of Ohio Department of Commerce.

We offer you the second option, giving you the skills you need and the field experience required as well as preparing you to pass the State of Ohio 3rd Class Stationary Engineer license exam and become a safe and efficient engineer.

Where can I find a study guide and training for the Ohio Stationary Engineer Boiler Operator license exam?

We have developed our own study guide and exam simulator software for the State of Ohio 3rd Class Stationary Engineer exam, which we provide to all our students. We are unaware of any other commercially available material that is specific to the Ohio Stationary Engineer exam.

Who issues the license?

In Ohio, Stationary Engineer licenses are issued by the State of Ohio Department of Commerce, Division of Industrial Compliance.

Do you offer job placement?

Yes. We provide our students with job leads after they complete the Stationary Engineer Boiler Operator course. Some students get hired as soon as they receive their license, and many of our students are hired by the business where they completed their internship.
