THE PROCESS TECHNOLOGY
AND OPERATOR ACADEMY MISSION
The Process Technology and Operator Academy (hence, PTOA) was inspired by Khan Academy’s educational mission to offer a totally free, quality learning experience to anybody with an internet connection and the resolve to learn.
The PTOA is a free, self-directed study which uses a unique approach to present the integrated concepts of industrial process technology and operations.
HOW TO OPTIMIZE THE PTOA EXPERIENCE
The PTOA uses a book-format structure that logically ties each focus study concept to the next. Sequential reading of each study segment (from the oldest post to the most current) is essential for maximizing comprehension and therefore competency in the process technology subjects presented.
FROM READER TO STUDENT TO GRADUATE
Casual PTOA site viewers may choose to register as PTOA Readers. Registering as a PTOA Reader enables bookmarking the site which facilitates learning about process technology and process operations at a self-study pace.
PTOA Readers may eventually choose to become PTOA Students.
Registering as a PTOA Student indicates that the casual Reader has focused on the goal to achieve a more thorough understanding of industrial process technology and operations.
Academy Students can participate in student forums and are enabled to test their understanding of process technology concepts with Your Mentor’s copyrighted testing tools.
PTOA Students who demonstrate mastery of a subject area will earn a PTOA Certificate of Competency.
PTOA Students who earn certificates in all PTOA subject areas become PTOA Graduates.
The PTOA shall remain free to all self motivated learners.
