Valve Training - Delivering Where You Need It!

Valves - Advanced Level, BVAA HQ, Banbury

Control Valves (CPD Accredited),Emerson facilities in Aberdeen
The spring period is always a busy time for the BVAA Training arm, but the first three months of 2018 has seen one of the busiest and most far-reaching UK programmes to date!

Given the current trading conditions and depleted budgets, all the more remarkable.

As well as the usual extensive list of ‘routine’ scheduled dates at our Banbury HQ - inclusive of a new Mentoring Programme - we’ve delivered a series of courses involving Presentation Skills and bespoke valves courses in south Wales, Advanced Valves and more regular courses in West Yorkshire, and a wide range of what turned out to be very popular courses in Aberdeen. We have also been delivering training programmes across the industry for specific members and customers.

Our sincere thanks to Emerson, Crane and Severn for allowing us to use their local facilities. The fact that BVAA operates in the main its own cohort of lecturers coupled with flexible venues means that we can offer clients maximum flexibility both in terms of timing and course content – a winning combination. We will be in all these places again pretty soon.

Not content with this, we are also planning to put on once again our highly regarded ‘Commercial Risk’ course, now updated to reflect modern trading conditions – see page 22. This course seeks to eliminate the colossal risks that can result from poorly managed sales and T&Cs, something all of us could really learn from. Casting Design for Valves is also making a return too – see page 17 – and this will cover a range of topics from casting design principles right through to quality control.

We publicised last issue that our courses are being awarded CPD certification and this process is continuing across the board. In doing so, we have also learned valuable lessons, resulting in significant changes in the way we assess delegates and gauge their knowledge both before and after the courses. We have also substantially improved and harmonised the look and feel of the supporting materials, which again are updated constantly to reflect the continual feedback we receive.
