Engineered Software's FFT Offers 'Pump Training' Course
WA, July 24, 2008 - Fluid Fundamentals Training, a division of Engineered
Software, Inc. announces the immediate availability of the latest addition
to its training catalog. The new course from Fluid Fundamentals Training,
titled Total Pump Training, is a three-day course covering proper pump
application, selection, operation, troubleshooting, and maintenance.
Michael Volk, Professional Engineer and President of Volk & Associates,
will provide live instruction for the courses. Michael Volk, P.E. has over
30 years of experience in the pump industry and has taught hundreds of
courses worldwide. The course awards continuing educational credits or
professional development hours upon completion. The first of the fall
training courses is set for September 17-19, 2008, in Houston, Texas.
"The Total Pump Training course has been successful in the past because
it is so comprehensive," said Michael Volk, P.E., Principle Consultant, and
President of Volk & Associates. "We don't just focus on the basics, we look
at how pump decisions and upkeep effect the entire system. It is practical
knowledge useful in the work environment, and on many occasions the class
can be modified to fit the needs of the individual company."
The class is suitable as a refresher course for engineers, maintenance
technicians, operations supervisors, pump application engineers, sales
people, new graduates, and other individuals that deal with pumping systems.
The course is also offered as an on-site training course, allowing for
content flexibility. A course outline is available online
Total Pump Training class attendees are given the latest edition of the
book Pump Characteristics and Applications, written by the course instructor
Michael Volk, P.E. This highly acclaimed book is now in its second printing
and can be purchased separately from the course at the Fluid Fundamentals
Learning Store found on the website
"This is the second of many classes we intend to offer through our Fluid
Fundamentals Training outlet, and we believe is of significant, tangible
value to our industry," said Michael Blondin, Vice President of Marketing
and Sales. "We hand-picked our course offerings because we believe that
there had been a gap in the quality of short courses available for the pump
and piping industry. The selection process was based on not only the content
of each course but the strength of the instruction, and the course materials
"I partnered with Fluid Fundamentals to ensure that all Total Pump
Training attendees are offered the highest quality of customer support and
services," said Volk. "By shifting the focus of course delivery to the Fluid
Fundamentals team, I am able to commit more of my energy on making the
training course more applicable and effective."
