Governor Services 


American Governor offers a wide variety of hydro governor training experiences, either at our Factory Repair and Training Center or On-Site at your powerplant.

Most customers begin by attending our highly-rated annual Governor School, held in June each year. Governor School is a 3-day, multi-track training event that enables attendees to choose Mechanical, Analog, or Digital training sessions – or a combination of all three – plus tracks on governor auxiliary systems and other industry-specific topics.
Our Focus Classes are just that: factory training classes devoted to a specific governor type.

If your engineers and technicians cannot be spared from their duties at the plant, we can bring governor training to you! Customized training focused on your particular style of governor can be easily arranged, and can include an overhaul of one of your own governors! Whether you choose Factory or On-Site training, we look forward to serving your training needs!
