The Bürkert Academy, a division of Burkert Fluid Control Systems has expanded its range of process industry courses for 2014.
According to Bürkert Academy’s training calendar for 2014, courses will be conducted in all state capitals and regional processing centres on a monthly or bimonthly basis throughout the year. Courses will be conducted in Bürkert’s training facilities, or can be arranged on-site to minimise delegate travel.
Lead trainer Mr David Ray will conduct standard courses as well as tailored programmes on-demand. One of the new courses introduced in 2014 is a combination of the ‘Hygienic Processing’ course and specialist ‘Process Pneumatics & Control’ course, forming a full day intensive or three-day master course. Initially developed at the request of a specific customer, the course proved popular with food and beverage companies keen to elevate the skills of their teams.
The Process Pneumatics course is also very popular as teams seek to increase their knowledge of modern pneumatics with integrated electronics and communications technologies. Another highlighted aspect was the ‘green’ movement in manufacturing and processing plants. The Process Pneumatics course teaches correct product selection, sizing, and set-up of pneumatic devices with the aim of reducing air wastage.
The Bürkert Academy operates as a separate department of Burkert Fluid Control Systems. Courses are delivered by professional trainers, and are focused on practical product selection, commissioning, and troubleshooting techniques within the wider process architecture.
