2016 Valve Basics - Fall Program

 

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

More than 1,500 people have attended VMA's highly rated Valve Basics Seminars. The Valves, Actuators & Controls 101 program began as a 1-day course and eventually was expanded to 2 days. And now, a third day has been added to focus on more intermediate topics. We suggest newcomers to our program attend all three days, and those who have participated in previous Basics programs are invited to attend the third day, with 201-level programming. We will continue to hold our popular "Valve Petting Zoo,” which provides a hands-on experience with the products covered during the course, as well as offer a tabletop exhibition during the afternoon hours of Day 1 (Oct. 18).

 

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

This course was created specifically for newcomers to the industry so it is ideally suited for recent graduates and engineers in the early stages of their careers. The course also works well for:
  • A variety of professionals employed at plants and facilities that use valves, actuators and controls
  • More experienced professionals with knowledge of one specific product type but in need of an overview of the entire spectrum of valves, actuators and controls.
  • New employees at valve, actuator and control companies
  • Personnel from EPC or AEC firms who are involved with specifying valves
  • Distributors and manufacturers' reps who sell these products
  • Companies that provide supplies and services to the industry
  • And anyone who could use a refresher course on valves, actuators and controls!
