:: GIW Announces Online Slurry Pumping Course

The course is a joint offering by GIW and the USF Polytechnic Florida Industrial and Phosphate Research Institute

GIW Industries, the leader in the design, manufacture and application of heavy-duty, centrifugal slurry pumps, announces the availability of a new Web-based course: Slurry Pumping - Web Training Course. The course will teach proven methods to maximize performance and efficiency in slurry pumping.

A joint offering by GIW and the USF Polytechnic Florida Industrial and Phosphate Research Institute (FIPR Institute), the course will cover major findings of the FIPR Institute's slurry pumping research projects and builds on GIW's training and industrial experience with pump systems. Topics covered in the course are applicable to mine managers, engineers, pump designers, operators and maintenance technicians, enabling them to sharpen their skills and improve their technical competence.

The participant-driven, self-paced course is available 24/7 and consists of six modules covering the following topics: Slurry Pumping Basics, Testing and Evaluation of Slurry, Cavitation, Modeling, Field Work and Maintenance.

Because the course is offered through the FIPR Institute and accredited through USF Polytechnic, Florida Professional Engineers can receive six Professional Development Hours (PDHs) for completion; other participants will also receive a certificate of completion.

To receive PDHs or certification, participants must complete six hours of online study and pass the final test with a score of 80 percent or higher. USFP will submit PDHs to the Florida Board on behalf of Florida Professional Engineers. Participants from other states may also submit their certification to their state boards for appropriate credits.

Instructors for the course will be expert resources from GIW, including: Graeme Adie, P.E., MIE GIW senior consultant; Reab Berry, GIW's director of business development; Robert Visintainer, P.E., vice president of Engineering; Lee Whitlock, Hydraulic Lab manager; Roy Duvall, GIW technical manager; and Dr. Anders Sellgren, professor of Water Resources Engineering in Sweden.

The cost of the course is $1,600 per person, which includes access to the online training modules, printable reference materials, instructor access via email, and PDHs through USF Polytechnic.
