By the end of this training course, participants should be able to:
This training course would primarily be aimed at people within the Instrumentation, Electrical, Mechanical, Process disciplines, who are actively involved in the utilization of valves (control or shut-off) and actuators, as well as those people who have the additional responsibility of sizing the valves, and making a decision on the composition and make-up of the valve.
It would also be of great value to those individuals who either have a keen interest in the field, or who have to manage the people working on the various valves and actuators. (In this respect, one could think in terms of Process Control Engineers, Electrical Engineers, Mechanical Engineers, Industrial Engineers, Designers and the like.).
