A Focus on Operating Principles, Not Brands
Unlike other training programs, our curriculum focuses on equipment from all manufacturers, not just Flowserve. By developing programs that are "OEM agnostic," your team will be well versed on all types of pump and seal systems, not just those from Flowserve.
Our courses teach the principles behind how flow control equipment works, not simply how to repair assets. By gaining a detailed understanding of how these systems operate, new and seasoned employees will have the knowledge needed to solve real-world equipment challenges, improve safety and enhance system performance and efficiency.
Our classes have varying proficiency levels, so students can grow at their own rate and apply the knowledge they learn in the real world before starting on the next course.
Students will spend 40% to 60% of their time learning in labs, breaking down pumps, replacing seals, comparing serial to parallel performance, and seeing and feeling cavitation. They will gain greater proficiency in pumps, mechanical seals and pumping system analysis and master a variety of crucial skillsets, including maintenance, operations and reliability.
