Receive a Certificate in Process Combustion Technology

Students may earn a certificate in Process Combustion Technology if they successfully complete the following courses within a five-year time span:

PB107 Process Burner Fundamentals
PB108 Advanced Process Burners
FL102 Process Flares
Elective Any other IACET-accredited John Zink Institute course

Most Institute courses are IACET-accredited, however PB155 is an online course which is a prerequisite for PB107 and is not currently IACET-accredited; therefore it would not meet the requirements for the elective.  Details on the IACET program are noted on our site.
Students do not need to apply or register for the certificate as the Institute Registrar automatically checks on a regular basis for students meeting the necessary requirements.  No additional fees are required for the certificate which is automatically sent to students meeting the requirements.  The first certificate was issued December 14, 2005.

This program was originally developed to recognize students, typically working in refineries and chemical plants, taking consecutive courses to get training in the combustion equipment in their plants.  The certificate does not certify the students for a particular position or task – it merely recognizes they have met the requirements for the courses in the certificate program.
