Class Format

Virtual classes are offered in real time with a live instructor. When you are part of a virtual class, your instructor is able to provide the interactive classroom experience from your own computer. You can participate in discussions, test your knowledge and ask questions, just like in a regular classroom. These classes run similarly to a live class and are a great option for those people interested in completing their training in a typical timeframe.

After completing this course, you will be able to: 

  • Identify electrical motor control systems, review motor types and their components
  • Describe pump types used in the water and wastewater industry and their make-up.
  • Understand liquid level controls
  • Analyze pumping hydraulics under both static and dynamic conditions
  • Interpret pumping curves 
  • Perform pump hydraulic calculations such as break horsepower and wire -to-water efficiencies 
  • Apply pump affinity laws to determine the changing effects of RPM to hydraulic characteristic

Who Should Attend 

You should take this course if you:

  • are responsible for maintenance of water and wastewater utility systems including plant operations;
  • are responsible for pump stations and related infrastructure;
  • are supervisors & managers of utility systems.

All attendees must have their own computer with audio and video capabilities to participate.
