Registration is open for IHEA’s Fundamentals of Industrial Process Heating Online Learning Course that begins on April 15, 2019.  The course is ideal for students who wish to further their studies at home or work in a flexible web-based distance-learning format. It’s an affordable alternative to campus-based classes and allows students to go at their own pace.  The program offers a vital tool to industrial process heating operators and users of all types of industrial heating equipment.  Students learn safe, efficient operation of industrial heating equipment, how to reduce energy consumption and ways to improve a company’s bottom-line.

The fundamentals course provides an overview of heat transfer, fuels and combustion, energy use, furnace design, refractories, automatic control, and atmospheres as applied to industrial process heating.  For a complete listing of the topics covered visit and click the Training and Events tab then scroll to Online Course.

Industry expert Jack Marino will lead students in this 6-week online course.  Jack is a registered Professional Engineer with over 40 years’ experience in the heat processing business.  He is a graduate of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute with a bachelor’s degree in Aeronautical Engineering and has a master’s degree in Engineering Science from Penn State.  Mr. Marino’s knowledge and experience offer invaluable resources that online students can access throughout the course.

IHEA will also offer an Advanced Industrial Process Heating course this fall.  This course is a compliment to the Fundamentals of Industrial Process Heating and provides the student with an in-depth view of the control and efficient operation of industrial process heating equipment. Students will become familiar with a variety of oven, furnace, and kiln types used in industry.

Upon completion of the course the student will have general knowledge of instrumentation and control for efficient operation of furnaces and ovens in process heating. The use of vacuum heat processing, recuperators, regenerators, gas atmospheres, and quenching will also be presented. Particular attention is spent on efficient operation of process heating equipment and methods to achieve cost savings.  Set to begin on Oct. 15, 2018, registration and course details will be posted soon.  Mark your calendar and check for updates.

IHEA’s online courses are a terrific value for IHEA members and non-members considering no travel expenses are involved and there is no time out of the office.  Take advantage of the online tools provided and benefit from the ability to learn almost anywhere.  A former online student remarks, “Because of balancing an extremely busy workload and family life, I am not able to be on a regular schedule or take time in the evening to travel to a class. The advantage for me is that I can check in when time permits and still stay up to date on all activities. The course information is directly related to my work and I found it to be very beneficial.”

Registration for the Fundamentals course is open now through April  at  Click the Training and Events tab on the top menu bar then scroll down to Online Course.  Cost for IHEA members is $700 for one member voucher, and non-members is $875, which includes electronic course handbook, course instruction, quizzes and projects, class forums and the opportunity to contact the instructor.  Printed materials are available for an additional fee.
