Adept’s Steam Turbine Operation License training is a three-day on-site course. Adept’s Inspections and Training provide formal theoretical training for 8 hours each day. Trainees are then required to complete a self-paced logbook. When our Assessors are notified of completion, they return to conduct a four-hour practical assessment for each trainee.


All Adept requires is that you already have access to your own equipment for training and assessment.


Adept conduct written assessments and practical assessments during the Steam Turbine License training. These are designed to assess trainees for competency and prepare them for their State Authority Assessment. Upon successfully completing Adept’s practical assessment, Adept organise a Safework NSW State Authority Assessment for trainees.

Successful completion of this assessment will earn the trainee a Notice of Satisfactory Assessment, which will need to be processed, along with 100 points of identification, through the Australia Post Office.

“Adept Inspections & Training were called upon to carry out Statutory Pressure Vessel Testing & Inspections on our available assets, not only in our Workshop but were more than willing to travel to nearby sites. Adept not only supplied us with a punctual and competent Service Technician but also, with friendly Office Staff who look after all necessary planning, recording and documentation. I would recommend Adept Inspections and Training to anyone who requires this type of service.”
