The objective is to provide up to date information on Watertronics technologies and continuous improvement training in the four technical competencies outlined below. Non-technical curricula include sales, marketing, administrative, and human relations skills.

The 4 technical components of pump stations:
  1. Mechanical components: pumps, motors, mechanical seals, valves, actuators, filtration, chemical injection, etc.
  2. Electronic components: Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC), Variable Frequency Drives (VFD), Soft Starters, Operator Interfaces, telemetry equipment, etc.
  3. Electrical: Service disconnects, contactors, fuses, breakers, overloads, power distribution and wiring.
  4. Software: The software that resides in PLCs, VFDs, operator interfaces and computers that provides efficient pump sequencing, plus local and remote monitoring and control.
