On September 18th and 19th, 2014, John McLay (P. Eng., R.E.T., PE (First)) internationally-recognized STO expert and President of JMC Consulting LTD., invited by the Alberta Boiler Safety Association (ABSA) to partake and vet the upcoming Pilot for the Pressure Equipment Safety Legislation Seminar. ABSA is the pressure equipment safety authority for the Canadian Province of Alberta, and is recognized across the country and worldwide as a leader in Boiler Safety processes, training and programming.

This event was a unique opportunity for industry professionals, including ABSA Authorized inspectors, recognized training institutions, and other knowledgeable experts, to sit on the other side of the table, as participants and students. We were kept engaged not only by the valuable information that was being shared but also by the practical tests that were offered at the end of each segment, leading us through the entire learning process. Participants were also asked to give feedback on the program, allowing for the sharing of best practices and of the most up to date knowledge to refine the presentation delivery.

As leaders in their industry, ABSA continues to set the highest of standards in its programming and delivery. The dedication to fully comprehensive and varied training opportunities that are currently being offered by ABSA is an ongoing testament to the dedication and commitment of this wonderful Albertan organization. JMC Consulting LTD. was grateful to be included in the process, and looks forward to more opportunities working closely with ABSA in the future. Excellent work and well done.
