This course is a great introductory course to pumps but also lots to learn for someone who has been in industry. Lots of useful tips for operation and sizing! Would definitely recommend!

This is a very good introductory course as it doesn't get into the actual math too much but gives you a really good foundation moving forward for all types of pumps.

This was a great course to refresh the understanding about pump design and how to select the right pump for our application. It also addressed various pump maintenance issues, troubleshooting and the mistakes we make while choosing the pump. I would recommend this course to anyone who is dealing with oil or water production facilities.

This was a very good two day course. Covered everything from conceptual basics to purchasing – design to operational considerations and troubleshooting. I found it extremely useful and very worthwhile. The instructor (J. Henderson) did a great job of making the material useful and understandable – he had clearly put in the work to make a valuable course. I would definitely recommend this course.

Overall, it is a really good training for people that size/select pumps, evaluate bids, and in general, people interested in having a good overview on pumps. 100% recommended.

Very well presented material. Very good use of physical and visual tools to help in explanation. Enjoyed the physical and visual break down (important for people not involved in the 'guts' like process engineers)
