But due to the continuing disruption caused by the Coronavirus pandemic, for the foreseeable future, these courses are being conducted online as live webinars.

Delivered over a series of three 3-hour sessions, the course has been configured to offer a learning experience that is as close to a classroom-based environment as possible. The next course will be delivered on consecutive Wednesday afternoons running from 14.00 – 17.00 on 13th, 20th, and 27th January 2021.

This is an ideal course for those who understand the basics of Pumping, have probably taken the "Introduction to Pumping Technology" e-Learning course, and are looking to further enhance their technical knowledge and understanding.

Following the classroom-based course as closely as possible, at the end of the three sessions delegates should be able to:

  • Contribute to the pump selection process through improved knowledge of the hydraulic performance and behaviour of pumps and their operating limitations
  • Recognise the reasons for the selection of pump types
  • Understand pumping system characteristics and the interaction of pumps and systems for single and multiple pump installations
  • Recognise operating conditions which cause pump and system operating problems
  • Contribute to good practice in the specification, selection, and operation of pumps.
