   Biofuel Production OperationsTell a Friend!
 
      Online Course - Overview

In 2009, the United States embarked on an era focused on alternate sources of energy. Biofuels are a key part of this quest. The term ?biofuel? implies production of energy from naturally available biological entities. This course covers production of ?petroleum-like? fuel from sources such as corn and other vegetation. Over the past few decades it has been proven without doubt that biofuels form a viable source of energy. At the present time hundreds of facilities world-wide are producing biofuels. Over the next few decades many advances will be made in this field and hundreds of new facilities will be built for production of this type of fuel. This opens a new field for potential workers. For decades to come, biofuels will be produced and consumed in the United States - creating an ongoing demand for biofuel production workers.

As a biofuel production operator, your job will be to ensure the quality and purity of the biofuel your plant produces. This involves inspecting and repairing equipment, operating computer systems, and handling lab equipment. For people who want to enter this field it is difficult to find suitable training to become prospective entry level workers. This course provides fundamental technical background to such workers. To take this course, no prior science or math education is necessary - the course includes all of the necessary basic science and technology elements. Biofuel production operators earn above-average wages and enjoy relatively much better job security and potential to advance into supervisory or management positions.

This is a user-friendly course, designed for people who have no prior exposure to technical aspects of hydrocarbons, energy or industrial processes. This online certificate program is offered in partnership with major colleges, universities, and other accredited education providers. The Bio Fuel Production Operations Program will give you the training you need to begin an exciting career in biofuel production. As a biofuel production operator, your job will be to ensure the quality and purity of the biofuel your plant produces. This involves inspecting and repairing equipment, operating computer systems, and handling lab equipment. This online course will ensure you have the skills you need to handle these tasks. At the present time hundreds of facilities world-wide are producing biofuels. Over the next few decades many advances will be made in this field and hundreds of new facilities will be built for production of this type of fuel. This opens a new field for potential workers. For decades to come, biofuels will be produced and consumed in the United States - creating an ongoing demand for biofuel production workers.
