June 8 was designated by the United Nations as “World Oceans Day” to raise global awareness of the benefits derived from the oceans and the current challenges faced by the international community in connection with the oceans, and to emphasize our individual and collective duty to interact with oceans in a sustainable manner so as to meet current needs without compromising those of future generations. This year’s theme “Gender and the Ocean” is an opportunity to explore the gender dimension of humankind’s relationship with the ocean. Peace Boat was honored to host the Evening Reception for the World Oceans Day onboard its vessel as it was docked in New York City on Friday June 7, 2019. Thank you to all those who joined and supported! #ocyap #peaceboat #youth4climate #unworldoceansday #worldoceansday #saveouroceans #genderandoceans

We live in the golden age of information. An operating engineer can easily organize the operating manuals, model numbers, nameplates, status displays, and logbook entries all on your smartphone. Everything is a click or swipe away when we take advantage of this. Seems obvious but amazing how often people are wasting time skimming through paper binders. 🤔 📲 . . . . #protip #timemanagement #organization #misenplace #documenteverything #externship #thetrainingcenter #operatingengineer #PowerPlant

Looking back - 5 years ago we started a specialized training program designed to solve problems we faced in both vocational education and within our industry. It’s amazing how far we have come, how much we continue to improve, and the impact this has made for so many individuals who have graduated (and are about to graduate next week 🙌). Tonight, and in the coming weeks, we are hosting open-house events to demo the program and look forward to begin building new careers.

As the world becomes increasingly unpredictable, it is especially apparent how critical our industry remains. Energy is as basic to human life as food and shelter. We need energy to drive our cars, heat or cool our homes, or to take a shower. The need for energy does not go away during a recession, though people may become more interested in conserving it. Employees in the energy industry, such as engineers and technicians, will continue to find employment. On average, they make about $67,000 a year, with outstanding professionals earning much more. While no careers are entirely recession proof, this one is extraordinarily more stable than others when times are hard. . . . . #thetrainingcenter #careerdevelopment #externship #vocationalschool #plantoperator #powerplantoperator #plantoperator #energy #stationaryengineer #boiler #boilers #boileroperator #boilertraining #operatingengineers #PowerPlant #powerplantlife #steam #careeropportunities #recessionproof #energymanager

4 days later we finally have power back at TC headquarters. 🙌 Thanks to all the local emergency workers out here getting everyone plugged back into the universe.

In New Jersey, you can’t work around a boiler without a license. But you can’t get a license without experience working around a boiler. 🤔 Sure seems like a catch-22. Our Externship Program opens the door for any qualified individual to train and enter the field of boiler, refrigeration, and power plant operation. We provide real-world experience and training carefully designed for the adult learner. Check out the link in our bio for more information to to attend a free orientation of how the program works and what it’s like to work in this industry. . . . . . #catch22 #equityandaccess #thetrainingcenter r #careerdevelopment #externship #vocationalschool #plantoperator #powerplantoperator #plantoperator #energy #stationaryengineer #boiler #boilers #boileroperator #boilertraining #operatingengineers #PowerPlant #powerplantlife #steam #careeropportunities

After a years of career development work, I’ve completely abandoned the idea that greatness is something people are born with. Great operators, energy managers, and other outstanding professionals are not determined by their experience. In fact, some got worse with experience. Our most outstanding graduates, who have made life-changing advancements in their careers simply practiced the key habits more deliberately. 📈 #externship . . . . . #worksmart #successhabits #thetrainingcenter #careerdevelopment #externship #vocationalschool #plantoperator #powerplantoperator #plantoperator #energy #stationaryengineer #boiler #boilers #boileroperator #boilertraining #operatingengineers #PowerPlant #powerplantlife #steam #careeropportunities

Happy Fathers Day to all you Dads! I’m remembering my father today, who’s passion for helping people will forever be the foundation of our school. . . . #thegreatest #ripjohn #happyfathersday2019

Never stop learning. Anyone who stops learning is old, whether they're 20 or 80. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. Keep yourself in the “student mentality” and you’ll always improve. . . . . . #neverstoplearning #handson #AdultEducation #thetrainingcenter #careerdevelopment #boileroperator #educationquotes #boiler #boilers #gasturbine #thermalplant #vocationalschool #plantoperator #powerplantoperator #energy #stationaryengineer #operatingengineers #PowerPlant #powerplantlife #energy #externship #careeropportunities

Nikola Tesla and George Westinghouse built the first hydro-electric power plant in 1895 in Niagara Falls and started the electrification of the world. This was the final victory of Tesla's Alternating Current over Edison's Direct Current. Above is a photo taken in 1953 of the original Westinghouse generators. 💡 . 📸 : Kenneth Swezey Papers in the Archives Center of the American History Museum. . . . . . . #thetrainingcenter #plantoperator #powerplantoperator #plantoperator #energy #electricity #hydroelectric #tesla #westinghouse #NiagaraFalls #PowerPlant #currentwars #acdc #edison #nikolatesla #turbine #generators

The Grand Coulee Dam is a concrete gravity dam on the Columbia River in the U.S. state of Washington, built to produce hydroelectric power and provide irrigation water. Constructed between 1933 and 1942, Grand Coulee originally had only two powerhouses. The third powerhouse, completed in 1974 to increase energy production, makes Grand Coulee the largest power station in the United States by nameplate-capacity at 6,809 MW. ⚡️ . . . . . . . #thetrainingcenter #plantoperator #powerplantoperator #plantoperator #energy #electricity #hydroelectric #hydroelectricpower #grandcouleedam #grandcoulee #PowerPlant #turbine #generators #industrialphotography
