Pumps and pumping systems are used in a vast array of systems and plants for numerous applications within the chemical processing, oil & gas, manufacturing, utilities, power, and construction industries, among many others.

Further, these pumps and pumping systems can directly impact the overall performance and output of any plant. However, because these component parts are located across the plant in diverse locations and applications, their collective influence may be easily overlooked.
As an engineering professional responsible for designing, maintaining, and/or operating systems, which require the use of pumps, your success is predicated on a comprehensive understanding of these critical pumping components and systems before, during, and after installation to ensure costs are contained and optimum system performance is achieved.

Featuring a special focus on centrifugal pumps, this official ASME learning path provides the critical knowledge, processes, and tools for pump selection and sizing, overviews the integrated nature and operation of pumps, as well as operation, maintenance, and troubleshooting procedures.
This official ASME learning path consists of two courses: 
Course 1: Fundamentals of Pumps and Valves and Their Selection for Optimum System Performance
This course covers the nature of pumps and valves and how they interact for optimum system performance. It will help participants develop a full understanding of how pumps and valves work, covering selection, installation, operation, maintenance, and trouble shooting. During the course participants receive guidance in making cost-effective decisions on the sizing of a pipeline diameter and tips for avoiding poor system operation.

  • Course Schedule: This course runs from 9:30 AM to 1:30 PM and 2:00 PM  to 6:00 PM Eastern, with breaks scheduled throughout.

Course 2 : Centrifugal Pumps: Testing, Design, and Analysis
This course focuses on the hydraulic principles of centrifugal pumps, as well as the interaction between a pump and a pipeline.  It covers a review of fluid mechanics, the modified Bernoulli equation applied to piping systems, the energy equation applied to pumps and piping systems, energy loss in a pipeline and in fittings.  Class discussion includes pump selection process, pump performance measurements, the specific speed-efficiency relationship, affinity laws, the effect of pipeline diameter on required pump size, and net positive suction head.

  • Course Schedule: This course runs from 9:30 AM to 1:30 PM and 2:00 PM  to 6:00 PM Eastern, with breaks scheduled throughout.

 Who Should Attend? 
This exclusive learning path is intended for design engineers, process selection engineers, procurement personnel, project engineers, quality personnel, operation & maintenance engineers, and inspection engineers in the chemical processing, oil & gas, manufacturing, utilities/power, and construction industries, among many others.

This ASME Virtual Classroom course is held live with an instructor on our online learning platform.  Certificate of completion will be issued to registrants who successfully attend and complete the course.
