Program Overview

CIET is proud to offer the Fundamentals of Compressed Air Systems course in partnership with the Compressed Air Challenge. Many industrial users are unaware of facility air flows, neglect to track air-related costs, and fail to regularly monitor their systems beyond maintenance concerns. This training is aimed at increasing awareness about the challenges and solutions associated with compressed air systems.

During this one-day course, participants acquire the skills to efficiently calculate and minimize compressed air expenses within their facilities. Additionally, they gain expertise in effectively managing compressed air systems to ensure optimal reliability and productivity. Practical exercises, using data from their own facilities, are conducted to emphasize tangible cost-saving outcomes. This course equips participants with the knowledge necessary to prioritize the achievements of concrete results in their plants or facilities.

By participating in this training, participants develop a deeper understanding of the expenses linked to compressed air. The course acts as a trigger for recognizing and creating opportunities for cost reductions. A recent survey conducted by the US Department of Energy revealed that facilities that implement energy saving measures achieve an impressive 80:1 cost-to-savings ratio.

This course is offered in collaboration with the Compressed Air Challenge (CAC). 



In this course, you will learn to

  • Define the costs as well as maintenance and system reliability issues related to compressed air. 
  • Control basic compressors. 
  • Determine how and when to measure power, energy, pressure, flow, and more. 
  • Maintain efficient systems. 
  • Develop an action plan (based on seven steps). 
  • Identify system problems and estimate potential savings. 


This course is ideal for

  • Plant/facility engineers 
  • Maintenance supervisors 
  • Utilities with industrial clients 
  • Plant/facility maintenance and repair staff 
  • Other personnel responsible for compressed air systems in an industrial setting
