CCCT - Combined "Brayton and Rankin" Cycle Combustion Turbine and HRSG License and Endorsement:

 

NASOE

The CCCT - Combined (Brayton and Rankin) Cycle: Combustion Turbine (CT) with AC Generator(s) and HRSG with Steam Turbine Generators License Program is the most difficult license to achieve.

No only does it encompass combustion turbines or gas turbines and AC generators, but also power engineering; however, make no mistake a HRSG (heat recovery steam generator) is no simple boiler and these facilities operate lean with self-starting/self motivated 3rds.

This License Certificate requires Continuing Educational Contact Hours (CEH) of 4-hours per year for an Accredited Institution or 5-hours per year for a non-accredited entity. Exemptions and further qualifications for CEHs can by found at this link: CEHs Requirements and Why.

CCCT Engineer: Chief Engineer

Institutions

A Chief Engineer license is intended for a Management level role with Oversite Role of one (1) or more sites, having overall responsibility, including but not limited to ISO, GADS, employees, equipment, financial budgeting, and DPCC programs.

Qualification to sit or write the examination are as follows: 1) Have a 1st Class CCCT license for 12 months, 2) Individual must have 36-months in a combined cycle plant with part of time in the role as Oversite Role of Multiple Sites or, 3) hold at least a 4-year technical college degree with 30-months in a CCCT facility.

A Professional Licensed Engineer (Mechanical or Electrical) is eligible for a Chief Engineer with a 12-month (2000-hours) probationary license (to be accomplished in 36-months).

The exam is based on what a Chief Engineer should know such as the ability for comprehensive (creative and justified) thinking and specifically synthesis, value, access, judge...defend of a CCCT power plant conditions and operations. The examination is a 50-Question test in a 2-hour period. Math formula references will be included in the exam packet. The components of the exam is made up of the following:
