Customers can choose the location, course content, and program
formats that optimize the use of human and financial resources
and deliver the most effective results.
Flowserve proficiency recognizes that you have completed a specific
training course and have attained a level of competence with the
material. It also allows for a progression to higher proficiency levels
as your expertise grows. Flowserve proficiency is offered in pumps,
mechanical seals and pumping system analysis. The closed-book
proficiency exams are given on the morning following the last class day.
They contain about 60 questions and can take up to four hours. You
must attain a grade of 80 percent to achieve proficiency at each level.
Flowserve proficiency documents are presented to and remain with you.
The documentation states the level of proficiency you have attained and
the number of formal training hours dedicated to each class.
Flowserve Educational Services provides companies around
the world with a wide range of innovative programs focused on
helping plant operators, reliability engineers and maintenance
personnel deepen their understanding of pumping systems.
Training programs from Flowserve are ideal for organizations
aiming to achieve:
Learning Resource Centers (LRC)
Flowserve has committed to the construction and support of the
pumping industry’s largest and most sophisticated network of
Learning Resource Centers. These state-of-the-art facilities ensure
participants receive a balanced combination of hands-on training
and operating theory.
On-site Customer Training
Flowserve Educational Services provides the design, development,
and delivery of training tailored specifically around the people,
equipment and processes at a customer’s location. Unlike
off-the-shelf solutions, trainers and instructional designers
deliver individualized instruction on the concepts, processes
and equipment needed to maximize employee performance in
the customer’s environment. To optimize the learning experience,
on-site training is supported by use of remote hydraulic lab
technology and portable acrylic pump systems.

Available Course Offerings
Depending upon the role of the student, Flowserve offers courses
ranging from those for the generalist to those who have obtained
engineering degrees. A comprehensive catalog of technical
and maintenance courses provides plant engineers, operators,
reliability experts and maintenance technicians with the training
they need on the equipment they use every day — on location or
at Flowserve Learning Resource Centers.
Track One — Basics Level
For Operations Personnel (OP)
This track is for persons involved in day-to-day operations and
for those who do not have an engineering or related technical
degree. Persons who want to understand more about pump and
seal basics should sign up for these classes. For example, those
involved in purchasing, training, human resources and safety or
similar occupations would want to consider this track.
Track Two — Intermediate Level
For Maintenance Personnel (MP)
This track is for maintenance personnel. These persons would
have experience in maintaining and servicing pumps and seals
used in the processing systems of the plant. It would be helpful for
enrollees to have a few years of hands-on involvement as well.
Track Three — Advanced Level
For Reliability Personnel (RP) and
Engineering Personnel (EP)
This track is for those who have an engineering degree or similar
education and background. These offerings are advanced courses
that do NOT cover pump and seal basics and assume the student
already has an engineering foundation. Beginners should not
sign up for these classes and are encouraged to look at the basics
classes offered in Track One.
