NOVEMBER 9-10


2020 virtual valve basics

 

includes Seven lessons FROM OUR VALVES 101 COURSE and video demos!

bonus: sIGN UP FOR THE BASICS AND GAIN ENTRY TO THE VALVE FORUM, nOV. 10-12

 

For nearly a dozen years, VMA has provided its Valve Basics course to thousands of people who are connected to or working in the valve industry and eager to enhance their knowledge: end users, specifiers, manufacturers, distributors, suppliers and even engineering students via scholarships! 

 

This November - in conjunction with the Virtual Valve Forum - VMA presents Virtual Valves 101. Our experienced presenters cover the major valve types, including linear, check, quarter-turn and pressure-relief, plus actuation basics. In early 2021, Virtual Valves 201 will be offered for those who want to take the next step in learning about these critical flow control products, including actuators, controls, automation and more. All virtual presentations will include videos to show how products work and to help attendees better understand the concepts being discussed.


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. In addition, those who understand the basics of mechanical valves can expand their knowledge by attending the electric portion of the program. Both courses can be taken, or attendees can choose to attend one or another. 

Attendees typically include:

  • A variety of professionals employed at plants and facilities that use or work with 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!

The Valve Basics course has been well-received by upper-level mechanical engineering students who have attended previous seminars. Their participation is made possible by scholarships from association members and others interested in supporting valve training for the next generation.
