Course Overview

When a pump is used, fluid is moved from one place to another, whereas a compressor squeezes the volume of a gas and pumps it elsewhere. While pumps work with both liquids and gases, compressors work with gas alone because liquids are difficult to compress. Pump and compressor stations are very much part of the total pipeline system.

Various factors play a role in determining pump and compressor stations. These include size and configuration of drivers, pumps or compressors; climatic conditions; regulatory, environment and safety requirements; and proximity to inhabited areas.

This Zoe training course will empower you with a comprehensive understanding of pump and compressor operations, performance, preventative maintenance and troubleshooting. The knowledge gained through the course will help you assume senior roles within the organisation, thus fostering career progression.

Furthermore, since the course covers all aspects related to pumps and compressors and these find applications in multiple industries, undertaking this course will prepare you for opportunities beyond your current organisation.


Course Objectives

The primary objective of this training course is to empower professionals with—

  • a comprehensive understanding of pump and compressor operations, performance, preventative maintenance and troubleshooting
  • the necessary experience and confidence to handle any challenge related to pumps and/or compressors
  • the experience to closely examine existing machinery employing pumps and/or compressors to check for maintenance or damage control
  • the required foresight to predict damages that could pose a serious threat soon, and make changes to ensure that business is not impacted
  • adequate confidence and knowledge to train other professionals on pumps and compressors
  • the ability to contribute to organisational development through reduced costs and better equipment
  • the knowledge and awareness of international standards and protocols to be followed
  • the overall skill set and capabilities to manage responsibilities related to pump and/or compressor operations

Training Methodology

At Zoe Talent Solutions, before each training session, the course content is thoroughly reviewed to check for relevance to the professional backgrounds of the training audience. Lectures are delivered by a highly experienced professional from the relevant domain, using audio-visual presentations. Trainees are encouraged to actively participate in the program through role-plays, group projects, case study discussions, etc.

This unique, customisable training format is used by Zoe Talent Solutions for all its courses and is called the Do–Review–Learn–Apply Model.
