Valves & Actuators 101 Course Set for VMA 2013

June 4, 2013

The Valve Manufacturers Association is offering a one-day version of its Valves & Actuators 101 education program on June 24 before the Valve World Americas 2013 Expo & Conference begins in Houston.

The second Valve World Americas 2013 Expo & Conference begins at Houston’s George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston on June 25, 2013, but the opportunities for learning start even before the conference. The Valve Manufacturers Association (VMA) is offering a one-day version of its Valves & Actuators 101 education program, designed to jumpstart the career of industry newcomers or provide a refresher on valve, actuator and control basics.

VMA member presenters will discuss the major valve and actuator types from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Monday, June 24. Attendees at the course receive a certificate of completion, CD with presentations, lunch and afternoon snack, plus complimentary entrance to the expo.

The 2013 Valve World Americas Expo & Conference to follow on the next day is designed to provide an international, yet American-focused platform for the ongoing technical and commercial exchange of information and experiences on the latest technologies, developments and products for the valve industry.

The conference will feature workshops on topics including material selection, fugitive emissions, fitness for service, updates in cryo technology, unconventional energy, and more. Each day has keynote sessions on topics such as the general outlook on energy and new challenges in the field.

In addition, 147 exhibitors from 15 countries will be displaying at the expo, presenting solutions from valves, valve-related products and valve–related piping products to seals and sealing materials, engineering and leak detection, and valve repair services.

To register for the Valves & Actuators 101 course, visit the Valve World Americas website (Deadline: June 19; Cost: $450).
