Working with Valves

Correspondence Course

Working with Valves

Who should attend:

  • Anyone who deals with valves
  • Mechanical Engineers and Technicians
  • Maintenance Foreman and Mechanics
  • Valve Salesmen
  • Internal valve sales people
  • Project Engineers
  • Buyers


No specialist knowledge or skills are required - only a technical background so that there is an understanding for such factors as the difference between pressure and force.

This course is a good introduction to someone who has had no dealings with valves in the past as well as an important refresher course for anyone who would benefit from the back-to-basics approach.

Training methodology

Each delegate will work on his own although ideally small groups should meet regularly to discuss the content of each module and share ideas. As the module is complete there are self evaluation questions to be completed as well as an assignment. The assignments are then sent to the course administrator who will arrange for them to be marked by an engineer. Feedback will be provided to the course participant. These assignments are a very important part of the course.
