Hydraulic Institute Launches E-Learning Course

Hydraulic Institute has launched its latest pump industry e-Learning program, "Positive Displacement Pumps: Fundamentals, Design and Applications."

The course is an Internet-delivered educational program designed to provide users with a broad knowledge of positive displacement pumping technologies. The material is visual and interactive.

Created by positive displacement pump experts associated with twelve separate member companies, the course has been developed for pump users, manufacturers and distributors, mechanical engineers, contractors, engineering consulting firms, students, and others who work with pumps and pumping systems.

Content is based on HI/ANSI standards with significant contributions from experts at member companies that sponsored and led the development of the course. The sponsor companies are ARO/Ingersoll Rand, CLYDEUNION, Colfax-IMO & Warren Pump, Flowserve Pump Division, Grundfos Pumps Corporation, Iwaki America Incorporated, Leistritz Corporation, LEWA, Inc., Milton Roy Americas, Moyno, Inc., Roper Pump Company, and Siemens Water Technologies.

Each of the five modules is designed for self-paced learning of approximately two hours and contains extensive reference material.

"This is a world-class course setting a new standard of excellence by Members of the Hydraulic Institute," said Robert K. Asdal, Executive Director of HI.

"A fundamental understanding of pumps is clearly needed on so many levels, as pumping systems are often not optimized for the best performance or lowest life cycle cost," said Robert K. Asdal, executive director of the institute. "This course fills a major educational void."

The institute also has redesigned the interface and content of its "Rotodynamic (Centrifugal) Pumps: Fundamentals, Design and Applications" e-Learning course which is available in five-modules.

Self tests are available for all courses throughout each learning module to ensure that students understand the content. At the conclusion of each module, an open book test is provided to evaluate the student’s comprehension. The institute offers students professional development hours for educational courses.
