Governor School US 2017

Whether you’re an experienced governor technician or an apprentice, this annual training workshop will expand your knowledge of governors and hone your skills.

Governor School is staffed by our knowledgeable instructors, many with decades of real-world experience. The sessions are interactive and the instructors’ goals are to share their knowledge with you.

We have expanded on the classic Woodward Governor School to provide a combination of classroom and hands-on training sessions on many types of Woodward governors, oil systems, and auxiliaries. Due to demand, we have added a track for Pelton governors, and other governor types are available upon request. Digital governor classes range from legacy Woodward digital models to the latest PLC-based digital systems.

This three-day workshop will be held near Stevens Point, WI.

and we’re bringing back the popular special Breakout Sessions and our famous Pig Roast.
