La confirmation du cours dépend de votre inscription. Inscrivez-vous tôt pour éviter que le cours soit reporté ou annulé.


Veuillez noter :
This course is held online over 5 days on the following schedule (All times in Eastern Time Zone):

10:00 am to 6:00 pm Eastern (Will include the usual breaks)

After participating in this course, you will be able to:

  • Identify main elements of mechanical equipment used in industry
  • Select and size the main components of equipment
  • Familiarize with practical aspects of operation and safety issues
  • Improve equipment reliability and availability
  • Apply best practice for maintenance of equipment

Technical personnel in plants and other engineering organizations who may not have a mechanical background are often given the responsibility for the procurement, installation, operation and maintenance of mechanical equipment.

To be effective, such personnel need to have a basic familiarity and understanding of the principles of design, operation and maintenance of the mechanical equipment.

This course will meet the needs of those who are looking for such information in a systematic and easy-to-understand way, where the focus in presentation and discussions will be on very practical aspects.

The material can also be beneficial to those with a mechanical background who are seeking to refresh their knowledge.

You will have several class workshops that will include case studies and selected practical real-world examples to be solved in teamwork.
