Companies will sponsor technical webinars and e-learning courses on a variety of pump topics

Hydraulic Institute Hydro Inc Training Partner Agreement

The Hydraulic Institute (HI) entered a training partner agreement with Hydro Inc., a leader in pump mechanical upgrades, material advancement and performance testing with service centers worldwide, that allows both organizations to leverage high-quality, co-branded educational and training programs designed for pump end users, distributors and engineering consulting firms. Through this training partnership, both companies will sponsor technical webinars and e-learning courses focused on a variety of pump topics and host the growing pump systems optimization courses to the broad pump end user marketplace.

“We are excited about this new training partner agreement with HI, as it will allow us to further grow in meeting our customers’ needs for delivering technical engineering-driven education programs focused on improving pump performance and extending product life-cycles,” said George Harris, president of Hydro Inc.

As part of this new partnership, Hydro Inc. hosted the one-day Pump Systems Optimization course in Fort Saskatchewan, AB, Canada, on Oct. 23, 2013, at its Scotford facility. This one-day course has been taught to more than 800 people, resulting in significant dollars saved in not only energy costs, but also in reduced maintenance and down time as well. Although engineers make up a good percentage of those taking the course, maintenance, operations and sales also are well represented. In addition to end users taking the course, engineering consulting firms also take the course to gain knowledge and credibility and to network with end users to increase their business.
