Live Special Technical Presentations

Live Breakout Presentations

This is a User only webinar series. Attendees must fit the definition of a User.

Definition of a User A person who is employed by a company that owns and/or operates combustion turbine generators. This person cannot, as part of their normal duties, provide services (parts, repairs, consulting) to any company other than the one he/she is employed.

  • Example of a User: A person who works in an office providing technical/operational oversight to the facilities his/her company owns and/or operates.
  • Example of a non-User: A person who works in an office providing technical/operational oversight to facilities that his/her company does not own and/or operate (the exception: if the person’s company has an operation/maintenance agreement in place with a company that owns a combustion turbine generator; then the person is considered a User as long as their department of employment is not involved with the sale of services to the company outside the agreement).
