High-Purity Water Education Program for Service Professionals

Program Description:

Elevate your experienced service personnel to professionals capable of critically evaluating treatment system performance.

This Web-based, virtual classroom program focuses on acceptable procedures for system installation, troubleshooting, and professional conduct. It teaches the right approach to solving problems in the field and reducing the trial-and-error learning that high-risk jobs cannot afford.

In addition to topics on system installation and troubleshooting, students will learn the culture of various industries using high-purity water, the importance of proper documentation, and other valuable tips so they can professionally represent themselves and their employer.

The program consists of three multi-session courses taught in an interactive virtual classroom format, using real-world examples, by instructors with industrial field experience ranging from 15 to 40 years. Coursework will include post-lesson quizzes, and some pre-lesson reading.
