Boiler Engineer Resume

Manufacturing plants have different types of heaters/boilers and ventilating systems, which need to be maintained and operated effectively to assure uninterrupted production. The construction, design, and maintenance of a boiler is the responsibility of a Boiler Engineer. Usually operators are responsible only for operating boilers, turbines, fans, etc. However, the core engineering of the same is outside their purview, and specialized engineers work on it. A Boiler Engineer can work on the designing of the boilers, their installation, processing, maintenance, etc. With the expanding infrastructure, boilers can be seen in huge malls, buildings, etc., besides the manufacturing facilities. They are also known as Stationary Engineers, and in some situations the job title is interchanged with Boiler Operators. The sample boiler engineer resume given below will help us understand the job profile further. However, before that let us know a little more about how one can enter this field, qualification for the same, etc.

Usually, to work as a Boiler Engineer, in a manufacturing unit, building or plant, wherein the person is responsible only for regular maintenance, operating, etc., the person does not require specific qualification. Anyone who has completed his/her High School Diploma can work at the entry level, and later on work at senior positions. Only the one's who work on designing these boilers need specific mechanical engineering qualification. International Unit of Operating Engineers provides an apprenticeship course, which extends over a period of four years and involves 6000 hours of rigorous training.

Some states make licenses and EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) certification compulsory for the candidates willing to work in this profile. Acquiring higher licenses, after gaining considerable experience will help in moving up to higher positions or working on more complicated and different types of equipment. Higher licenses enable them to work at higher positions like Boiler Inspectors, Chief Boiler Engineer, etc.
