Minnesota Boiler Exam Preparation for all licenses.
NOTE: IF YOU ARE TAKING AN "A" LICENSE EXAM YOU WILL NEED TO TAKE THIS SEMINAR AND THE 3-HOUR TURBINE SEMINAR. THE ALL-LICENSE SEMINAR COVERS THE BOILER PART OF YOUR EXAM; NOT THE TURBINE SECTION.

This 2-day seminar was designed with one purpose in mind; to help you pass your boiler operator exam. Whether you are taking a Minnesota Special License Exam or a Chief "B" exam we will cover what you need to pass the test (this seminar, plus an additional turbine seminar is required for "A" licenses). The state exam will be given through the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry on the date that you sign up to take the exam.

What this class is:
This class is designed to help you pass your Minnesota boiler exam. In the highly unlikely event you fail you may attend another class at no charge (state exam application fee still applies).
Because the tests have been increasing in difficulty, we suggest you study before coming to the seminar. Some study materials will be provided free of charge. Other study materials can be purchased here.
What this class is not:
Unfortunately, two days is not enough time to prepare you for your exam while teaching all the fundamentals of boiler operations at the same time.
Recommended study materials for exams. The exam preparation seminar will cover the information needed to pass your exam. However, if you would like additional study materials, we recommend the following books and/or workbooks. Click on each link to purchase each book.
