KLES Academy

Breeding up piping management professionals and in-furnace scaffolding maintenance experts,
KLES Academy is the first runner in Korea!

About K-Academy

KLES Academy is a dedicated education & training institute established in October 2011 at Daejeon, KLES Headquarters with a training course to breed up piping management experts at home and abroad and an education course for boiler in-furnace scaffolding and HTL technologies. Each course is led by excellent professional faculty in its own field, with the top priority on scaling up related knowledge and job duties & skills through systemized training curriculums.

Training Course Objectives

  • Speciaist Training

    Specialized technology-directed training courses for the working-level managers

  • Practical Training

    Practical training courses using virtual simulators made up on the place, as if at the power plant site.

  • Open Training

    An academic platform working out problem tracking-down protocols in the multi-angle perspectives, by a get-together of numerous power plant mates

Key Advantages only to KLES Academy

Excellent curriculum & faculties

  • Top-class faculties with professional careers related to practical skills on the job.
  • Systematic core curriculum
  • Smart operation & service by veteran trainers and marshals having many years of cumulative devotions.

Practice-oriented simulation education

  • Practicing conducted in a simulator facility corresponding to each course.
  • Learning on the cause analysis and counter solution against problems occurring in the field
  • Getting together and interacting with lots of power plant working managers in one place.

Convenient education amenities

  • Located in Daejeon, the geographical hub in South Korea
  • Furnishing comfy room & board solely for trainees.


Simulation Program?

This is an education program that improves the management skills of the practitioners, through collaborative courses to grasp the concept principles and exercise their applications, making practical use of the actual field-like simulation devices and environments in the simulator facility.

Piping simulation system

This is a system that simulates the movement of piping and pipe supporting devices installed in a power plant. Practices are conducted to analyze the cause of problems occurring in the actual piping and to prepare countermeasures. 

Sling rod simulation system

By implementing a demo system of the sling rod installed at the top of the boiler and designed to support and balance the overall load of the boiler, helping make it easier to understand the concept of sling rod and boiler supporting devices and to learn the mechanical properties of boilers and pipes through boiler load balancing exercises.


-- It is a unique education & training academy dedicated to fostering piping management professionals and in-furnace scaffolding maintenance experts throughout the energy industry such as thermal power, nuclear power, and new & renewable energy. Geared to the power plant practitioners either home or abroad, a broad variety of training programs have been organized in relation to the safety compliances that they have to catch on to. --


KLES Academy Curriculum I/II
-Piping Professional Training Course 
This training program aims to train the professional workforce to grasp the basic design concepts of the pipes and the piping support devices, their inspection & analysis methods, and the piping 3D spatial movement, thereby scaling up the level of duties and skills of the piping practitioners concerned.
The number of piping accidents breaking out because the pipelines of power plants or heavy chemical plants are getting aged in the course of long-term operations or because of the absence of a mid to long-term piping management plan is increasing sharply, along with accidents caused by natural disasters like earthquakes. Now, it is high time for specialized systematic education & training focused on practical skills to be introduced in power generation sites.
In an effort to make the most of 3DDMS and Sling rod systems, nominated the 'Selected Item for Development’ by big-five power companies, KLES came up to open up the Academy so that the participants can be educated about the principal theories and their applications, utilizing simulation facilities intended to make up actual onsite working environments.
Through the collaborative courses of training both theoretical and practical, the practitioners get to learn and improve the job duties and skills to operate and manage the power piping system and the equipment.
