AIA Learning Units Eligible

This course has been approved by AIA for continuing education credits. The AIA requires that its registered architect members earn 18 Learning Unit (LU) hours of continuing education credit annually (eight hours of which must be related to Health, Safety, and Welfare topics and four of those eight in Sustainable Design) to remain in good standing. Architectural boards in 40 states, 10 Canadian Provinces, and 19 countries have implemented mandatory continuing education (MCE) for re-licensure.

The Association of Energy Engineers is an approved training provider within the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Continuing Education Systems (CES) Registered Provider program.


HARRY TAPLIN, P.E., C.E.M., is an expert who brings over 30 years experience in boiler operations, design, testing, and troubleshooting to this program. A nationally recognized authority on boiler efficiency improvement he has managed a world wide boiler tune-up program involving close to a thousand boilers, hundreds of plants and thousands of tests - identifying deficiencies - and millions of dollars in energy savings per year. He holds an unlimited steam engineers license, three Professional Engineers licenses and is a Certified Energy Manager. He has published two books on boiler and steam plant optimization and developed an extensive course for operators of high capacity fossil fuel fired plants. He has made an extensive study of effective educational methods which he applies to his professional courses. He believes the student should be comfortable with the subject and confident he can apply the lessons. He has been president of the consulting firm BTU consultants and for the past 15 years has been troubleshooting plants, conducting efficiency tests and evaluations for much longer. His research has resulted in "new science" pushing plant efficiency to new high levels and is developing a new technology to reduce pollution and CO2 to new lower levels. He earned his B.S. degree at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy.


The Boiler & Steam System Cost Control Online Seminar is designed for the corporate "team" and professionals who can benefit from a better understanding of how to pinpoint and apply appropriate projects from a selection of over 100 proven opportunities to achieve optimum efficiency, reduce fuel costs, increase profits, and reduce pollution and carbon emissions, including::

  • Executives and Managers
  • Boiler Plant Supervisors and Operators
  • Facility Engineers and Supervisors
  • Consultants and Engineers
  • Maintenance Supervisors and Personnel
  • "Green" Managers and Environmental Staff
  • Boiler and steam system Equipment Suppliers
  • Federal, State and Local Government Energy Managers
  • Energy Service Company Representatives
  • Carbon Credit Evaluators and Compliance Personnel
  • Environmentalists

Presented online in a series of four live two-hour time modules, this seminar is designed to introduce you to the broad range of fuel saving options hidden away in boiler and steam systems, including over 100 ways to slash energy costs, pollution and carbon emissions.

You can participate in the seminar from your office, home, or anywhere you have access to the internet and a phone or VOIP. You'll have opportunities to interact with your instructor and colleagues in real time during the four live teleconferencing sessions, as well as in the time between session.

  • Improve boiler and steam system performance
  • Increase company profits by saving energy dollars
  • Insure that you don't miss hidden opportunities because this shopping list is very complete
  • Reduce pollution
  • Reduce maintenance problems
  • Reduce your carbon footprint because you are working at the very source of CO2 emissions

You'll leave this program with a clear picture of the complexities of boilers and steam systems. You'll understand how and why energy has a way of mysteriously disappearing without a trace, and how to correct this problem. By implementing the measures presented, you can reduce fuel costs, conserve energy, reduce pollution, reduce your carbon footprint, and significantly increase your company's profits. You'll get the facts you need about efficient boilers, efficient steam systems and efficient use of energy. You'll learn how to identify the most productive targets out of a multitude of possible opportunities presented in the course.

Instructed by one of the nation's most highly regarded boiler and steam system efficiency experts, this program will give you an understanding of:

  • Key elements of boiler and steam system efficiency.
  • Helpful rules of thumb and general simplified concepts that make the task of identifying trouble spots and opportunities much simpler and faster.
  • A long list of energy saving opportunities to fit almost any plant or system.
  • A new refreshed viewpoint of the logic necessary to improve plant conditions.
