This is a dedicated Water Industry Course providing
4 days training, spread over 5 working days.

It is intended to give an in-depth understanding of pumps and pumping systems to engineers who are required to design pumping systems, approve designs submitted by sub-contractors, or advise clients on possible improvements to existing systems.

Using a series of demonstrations, presentations and practical exercises, the course will provide an understanding of the factors affecting pumping system design, and equip participants with a toolkit of ideas and techniques for the design of efficient pumping systems.

The course will conclude with an exercise, based on a typical situation, which brings together all the points covered and enables the trainees to use the skills learned during the week.


• Understand how the properties of fluids affect pump selection and performance
• Understand the construction of pumps and how to get the best out of them.
• Understand the factors affecting system design and the interaction between pump and system.
• Understand the factors affecting OPEX and how to calculate OPEX for variable duty stations.

The material will be presented by means of a series of lectures and demonstrations, with each topic being reinforced by practical exercises.

The final session will be a group exercise, based on a real situation, which draws together all the learning points from the week.

Engineers who need to design pumping systems, whether as part of their daily work, or only occasionally.

Engineers, and others, who are called upon to assess designs submitted for approval.

No prior pumping knowledge will be assumed, but previous attendance at the Pumps for Beginners course will be an advantage.
