Bürkert Technical Training to provide local solutions for 2014

Bürkert Fluid Control Systems, a leading specialist manufacturer of control and measuring systems for fluids and gases, is aiming to offer more on-site training courses to those involved in the process control industry.

In a bid to reduce travelling distances for the trainees, Bürkert is increasing the number of trainers available to carry out training at a customer's premises.

The popular courses on Steam and Sensors are being run at the company's new headquarters in Cirencester, UK. The Steam training course will be running in March and November, with only a few places left on the Sensors course which is being held in February. Other courses are available and can be tailored to suit the particular requirements of an individual customer.

The courses provide theory based learning, backed up with practical applications, for a hands-on approach. Bürkert use examples and case study materials throughout the courses to highlight typical applications, all delivered by its industry experienced staff.

This year Bürkert is offering existing clients and distributors the opportunity to have bespoke training courses conducted on their premises to ensure that both design engineers, process engineers and maintenance engineers all have full access to training on site.

Bürkert aims to provide information on the real physics of batching, cleaning and sterilizing, water producing and distributing, filling, heating, cooling, separating, fermenting, distilling, or evaporating, where engineers can share experience in complete control loops for flow, conductivity, pH, temperature, pressure, and level.

"We are passionate about sharing knowledge and our training programmes are designed to deliver the greatest benefit and education to those who attend. Our training is based firmly on the knowledge and experience we exercise on a daily basis. Our course structure is well established and it is delivered in a comfortable and professional manner." commented course coordinator and Marketing Manager Helen Christopher.

The training courses are modular and are independent of each other so people can attend any or all of the courses. All courses are free to attend with lunch and refreshments included throughout the day. "One of the reasons we decided not to charge for training is that it removes a barrier preventing people from attending. Delegates expectations are generally surpassed after each course, so much so that most training requests are from word of mouth referrals."

Typical comment from a course attendee:
"Our Engineering team at the Hall and Woodhouse Brewery have attended several of Bürkert's free training sessions. We have increased our knowledge of steam and hygienic systems, bought practical information back to the Brewery which has now been successfully implemented, and has enabled us to drive health and safety forward in this field. This is a great initiative from Bürkert and I would urge any company to take up their generous offer".
