2018 Valve Basics - Fall Program

 

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

Nearly 2,000 people have taken one of VMA's highly rated Valve Basics courses since the program was introduced in 2009. Valves, Actuators & Controls  features 15 individual lessons along with a hands-on learning experience that focuses on products covered in the classroom portion of the program. In addition, a tabletop exhibition is held early in the evening of the first day, providing attendees with additional opportunities to ask questions and learn more.

 

To provide more space for an expanded hands-on experience, this event will be held at the Houston Area Safety Council in Pasadena, TX. The council has a state-of-the-art training facility and abundant workshop space where products for the "Valve Petting Zoo" can be displayed.

 

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!
REGISTRATION

Registration is open to both members of VMA/VRC and industry non-members.
