Current course offerings:


Root Cause Analysis
January 13 - 15, 2015, 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
$1,250, 2.4 CEU

This course provides an in-depth understanding of Root Cause Mapping techniques. The course is designed to provide detailed comprehension of how to perform RCA to achieve the maximum bottom-line results, the resolution of identified causes. Participants will learn to write a report detailing the RCA results, present their findings to management and track the progress of the recommendations implemented for event resolution.

Pump and Mechanical Seal Principles
March 17 - 19, 2015, 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
$1,250, 2.4 CEU

This course provides participants with the knowledge and skills needed to understand the basics of pumps, pumping systems and mechanical seals. The course curriculum is centered on pump and mechanical seal design, operation and maintenance, and is made up of approximately 60% classroom and 40% laboratory time. Concepts and theory are taught in a classroom setting and then reinforced with hands-on exercises in the laboratories. Participants utilize the laboratories (static displays and operational pumps) to perform pump and seal settings through learning experiments. Working in teams, attendees will be involved in interactive discussions while they assemble, disassemble, test, and document a variety of operational pumps and mechanical seals.

Centrifugal Pump Fundamentals
July 21 - 23, 2015, 8:00 am -5:00 pm
$1,250, 2.4 CEU

This course provides an in-depth understanding of Centrifugal Pump Fundamentals. The course is designed to provide a detailed explanation of how a centrifugal pump is constructed and operated to achieve maximum reliability. Selecting the right pump for a specific application and identification of problems associated with pump operation are determined through the use of pump curves and hydraulic calculations.  To register for this course: www.pumptraining.com


Mechanical Seal Fundamentals
September 15 - 17, 2015, 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
$1,250, 2.4 CEU

This course explains the basic need for mechanical seal systems and the theory behind how they work. Emphasis is placed not only on the operation of mechanical seals, but also on the environments where they operate (pump or other equipment) and the support systems that help them survive. Additional topics include materials of construction, fluid properties that affect seal selection, seal specifications and reading seal drawings. Class time accounts for approximately 60% of the total, with the remainder spent on laboratory exercises. Students will assemble and disassemble pumps and seals as well as operate pumps and monitor performance. Both team and individual hands-on exercises are included.

Pump and Mechanical Seal Reliability 
November 17 - 18, 2015, 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
$1,250, 2.4 CEU

This course gives participants a better understanding of the interrelated functions of the centrifugal pump, mechanical seal and complete pumping system. Participants learn how to find and address causes of poor pump and seal reliability. After a brief review of pump and mechanical seal basics, course curriculum centers on pump and seal troubleshooting and solutions. Concepts and theory are taught in a classroom setting and then reinforced with hands-on exercises in our laboratories. This course is approximately 60% classroom and 40% laboratory time. Participants use our dynamic power laboratories' fully operational pumps to perform exercises that demonstrate the principles presented in the classroom. Working in teams, all are involved in interactive discussions while they analyze and document findings from the operation of laboratory equipment. To register for this course: www.pumptraining.com
