Program Overview

CIET is proud to offer the Pump Systems Fundamentals course in collaboration with the Hydraulic Institute (HI). This course is aimed at equipping participants with a thorough comprehension of pump systems and their components and operation.

During this one-day course, participants learn about the key elements of pump systems. The course covers principles of pump systems such as positive displacement, rotordynamics, relevant formulas and parameters, power and energy consumption, centrifugal curves, and positive suction heads.

By participating in this training, participants enhance their comprehension of pump systems and acquire the necessary skills to guarantee the future optimization of such systems.

This course is offered in collaboration with the Hydraulic Institute (HI). 


In this course, you will learn to

  • Identify the fundamental principles of pumps and their drivers. 
  • Categorize positive displacement pumps based on their fundamental principles and types. 
  • Classify rotordynamic pumps based on their fundamental principles and types. 
  • Calculate total pump head using relevant formulas and parameters. 
  • Analyze pump and system curves to interpret their characteristics. 


This course is ideal for

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