A-B-Ease of Valve AutomationIntroduction to the different types and applications for electrical actuators for water and wastewater treatment plants.1 PDH; 1 DEC; 1 DOH
Metering Pump TechnologyThis one hour course provides an overview of options in metering pump technology, which is used for chemical injection and disinfection in various stages of wastewater treatment.1 PDH; 1 DEC; 1 DOH
Thickened Aerobic Digestion ProcessOverview of Thickened Aerobic Digestion Process technologies: G-TAD, M-TAD & Mem-TAD as well as results from existing operating plants.1 PDH
Mag Drive and Power Monitor Pump DemoThis course is designed to illustrate how a live demo centrifugal pump runs on its curve and how a power monitor can keep a pump running in its optimal performance range.1 PDH
Air Control in Liquid Transmission Systems This course will provide an overview for the various types of issues when there is air in a wastewater or water line. It will describe the different types of equipment available to remove air from a pipeline.1 PDH; 1 DEC
Choosing the Right Blower Technology for your WWTPThis course will provide an overview of each type and style of blower technology, what type of WWTP should use a specific technology and what the advantages and limitations of each are.1 PDH
Screen Selection, Hydraulics & Screenings HandlingThis presentation will review types of screens, screening equipment design, hydraulic considerations and screening handling.1 PDH; 1 DEC
Mixing FundamentalsThe basics of defining the variables required for optimum mixing & the proper selection of a mixer based on process & mechanical guidelines. 1.5 PDH
Nutrient Removal and Recovery SolutionsA comprehensive review of conventional and biological (BNR) and enhanced (ENR) nutrient removal solutions for liquid and side streams treatment trains at a water resource recovery facility. 1 PDH; 1 DEC; 1 DOH
Benefits of Progressive Cavity PumpsThis presentation will provide information to engineers and operators for the design and maintenance consideration when specifying and repairing progressive cavity pumps. It will also review a new and innovative approach to maintaining flow output over the pumps lifespan.1 PDH; 1 DEC; 1 DOH
Engineered Process Systems Capabilities This course will discuss the evolution of packaged systems in the water & wastewater markets from factory built to custom engineered systems & how they can ease future maintenance of equipment, prevent exposure to confined spaces, reduce costs and improve quality. 2 PDH
All About Low Pressure Sewer SystemsThe fundamentals of low pressure sewer systems & the viability of the systems as a sustainable solution for failing conventional sewer systems. Includes an overview of low pressure sewer systems, system equipment, operation & maintenance overview, & system design principles.1 PDH
Wastewater AerationAeration is the largest energy user at most municipal wastewater treatment plants. The one hour presentation will include basic “Aeration 101”, as well as a review of alternate technologies that can achieve the desired results.1 PDH
Submerged, Attached-Growth Bioreactor ProcessAttendees will learn about this process that utilizes a Biologically Active Filter (BAF) operating as a sequencing batch reactor. The reactor maintains a high fixed film biomass concentration averaging an equivalent of 12,000 Volatile suspended solids per liter. A system with a small footprint with superior treatment results.1 PDH; 1 DEC
Fundamentals of PumpingThe glass face pump is a live demonstration that simulates suction and discharge/cavitation and air entrainment as well as moving conditions of service. Attendees will work together to tear down a pump and put it back together, teaching them maintenance and the critical parts of the pump to check peridodically. The packaged lift station demo provides an overview of basic pump hydraulics, how to determine NPSH and system head curve, and troubleshooting4 PDH
Gorman-Rupp Factory TrainingThis training will help those attending to better understand the concepts and interaction of the different types of pump curves, what NPSH and cavitation are and the different type of pumps are available. It will also educate the operators on how to take proper gauge readings and interpret them. This will empower them to properly troubleshoot their systems and keep their plant running more efficiently.6 PDH; 9.5 DEC


With professional licensing credits provided by the Practicing Institute of Engineers (PIE), the NYS Dept. of Environmental Control (DEC), and the NYS Dept. of Health (DOH)*, we can help you stay on the cutting edge of the industry.
