Pump Systems Training and PSAP Certification Prep Course with Exam Bundle

March 14-16, 2023 | 10:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. EST


With energy efficiency and system optimization leading a shift in the pump industry, there is a growing need for pump system professionals with the knowledge and experience to perform high quality assessments to benchmark current systems and recommend system upgrades. Pump system training provides professionals with the knowledge and tools to perform system assessments and the Pump Systems Assessment Professional (PSAP) Certification provides third-party validation of an individual’s proficiency in pump fundamentals, pump system optimization techniques, and implementation of pump system assessments.

This course bundle offers 3 days of virtual instruction on Pump System Fundamentals (Day 1), System Optimization and Assessment (Day 2), and PSAP Certification Exam Prep (Day 3). Registration for this bundle also includes the PSAP certification exam at a discounted fee. The exam can be scheduled at a later date after an application is submitted. Click here for more information on the certification exam and the certification process. Click here if you do no want to include the certification exam in the course bundle.

This course bundle is designed to educate and train pump engineers, technical sales, pump system owners, designers, and operators on the fundamentals of pump and system design, including system hydraulics and calculations, pump and system curves, system components, factors affecting reliably and energy consumption, and control. The course will cover the knowledge areas for conducting pump system assessment and prepares you to take the PSAP Certification Exam. Registration for this course bundle includes a digital copy of the Pump System Optimization Guidebook and the Pump Systems Assessment Professional Certification Exam Study Guide.

    Pump Systems Assessment Professional (PSAP) certification validates the knowledge and experience of industry experts. PSAPs meet the standard of excellence required to collect, review and analyze the data needed to fully assess pumping systems and recommend strategies for optimization, efficiency, reliability and overall system improvement.


    This examination is for the certification of Pump Systems Assessment Professionals (PSAP) developed by the Hydraulic Institute. PSAP certification provides confidence to pump end-users and other stakeholders that pump system assessors have the knowledge and experience to perform high-quality assessments which will lead to energy-efficient and reliable pumping systems. The exam is composed of 100 multiple-choice questions. Candidates have three and one-half (3½) hours to complete the exam. Carefully read the questions and choose the best answer. A formula sheet has been provided as a reference.
