(Hydraulic Institute: Parsippany, NJ) -- Hydraulic Institute announced the availability of two new on-demand training products developed with its educational subsidiary, Pump Systems Matter.  These on-demand training products are designed to support the pump and fluid-handling industry with convenient workforce development and onboarding resources. New employees can start with the broadly applicable introductory modules before taking the more in-depth, fundamental sessions that cover pump and system design and operation.

It is a starting resource for onboarding new employees in sales, marketing, engineering, technicians, and operations. The six modules cover pumps, drivers, fluid properties, system and pump curves, basic operating theory, and pump selection and data. The training sessions have been designed to offer a convenient learning solution that can seamlessly integrate into companywide onboarding and training programs. The 10-minute training modules include 3D graphics and animations that illustrate how pump systems are constructed and operate. Following each module, quizzes confirm understanding. Introduction to Pump Fundamentals is offered at no cost as a membership benefit for Hydraulic Institute members and corporate partners.

Employees can take individual sessions or complete the full learning path to meet their training needs. Each of the 13 one-hour training sessions is divided into concise training modules for convenient learning, and integrated quizzes are included after each module to verify comprehension. From calculating system head and NPSH (net positive suction head) to factors that affect reliability, pump selection, and everything in between, these sessions provide the understanding of pump and system design and operation that enables the workforce to provide solutions.

“Workforce development is a critical need for the pump and fluid-handling industry. As new employees rise to replace the aging workforce, we have seen that a basic understanding of pumps is missing. It’s vital that education and training resources be available in the marketplace. These new modules will provide an important first step and pave a much-needed, continuous learning path that can easily be adopted into an onboarding requirement or employee-development strategy. Developed for the industry in a product-neutral manner, these courses can be used by manufacturers distributors, engineering firms, and end-users alike to establish a common baseline and understanding,” says Michael Michaud, Hydraulic Institute executive director.

Offered individually or as a bundle, these new on-demand training modules provide a learning path that can be customized based on the interest and skill level of each participant.
