Cornell Pump Company’s Pump School started in 1949. In that time, we’ve trained tens of thousands of participants on pumps, hydraulics, and ways they can make their pump systems more reliable, and more efficient.
We heard from many folks that the traditional time period of Pump School in September didn’t work with their trade show or agricultural schedules, so for 2017, we are offering a JANUARYpump school. Still held in Portland, Oregon, the school offers basic and advanced tracks on topics such as NPSHr/a, system curves, installation and care, slurries, priming systems, and much more.
We’ve even created a quiz to get in the spirit of Pump School. Take this short 5 question quiz, and see how well you know pump knowledge that will be covered in Pump School.
You can learn about pump school here, and download the registration form here. Pump School is a great value; $175 per attendee, or ONLY $95 if you come as a guest of a Cornell Distributor. Three days, two receptions, meals, giveaways, and TCH-approved learning in one of the most beautiful cities in the country. Make your plans to attend Pump School 2017, January 23-25, 2017; Monday night reception and classes/factory training on Tuesday and Wednesday.
