Course learning outcomes include competencies related to pumps, compressors, couplings, and precision alignment. Course compares different coupling types and examines common misalignment problems. Apprentices will develop skills related to inspecting, troubleshooting, and preparing couplings for removal and installation, and also aligning and lubricating couplings. Laser alignment techniques will be introduced. Apprentices will also examine pumps, pump types, operating specifications, and their applications. Pump components such as packing, seals, gaskets, materials of construction, and related instrumentation are included in the course. Course competencies focus on inspection, testing, service, repair and maintenance of pumps and pumping systems.
