    CNA, the boiler machinery carrier for PACE, is conducting a free training class in Medford in April.

    The following is an overview of this training:
     

    "Even with expert installation and regular maintenance, boilers still break down and experience catastrophic failures that can shut down your
    school. This course will focus on jurisdictional code requirements and inspections, boiler operational procedures, boiler controls and safety
    devices and the importance of an effective boiler water chemistry program for low-pressure boilers."
