FARMINGTON, NM, Nov. 17, 2004 -- David H. Paul, Inc. (DHP), a world leader in advanced water treatment training, recently surveyed thousands of its clients worldwide to find out what training was needed and most wanted in the industry. The answers have sparked the addition of three new seminars to the DHP 2005 schedule. The additions will compliment the five traditional seminars the company offers year to year.
And the survey says
Much of the interest (56%) centered around electrodeionization (EDI) training. Second in line, was training that involved microfiltration/ultrafiltration and how it applies to making the transition from conventional to membrane water treatment.
In response, the water treatment education and training specialist has included a three-day seminar on EDI in November 2005 to be held at the Intel University in Chandler, Ariz. "Electrodeionization Water Treatment" will cover EDI operation, maintenance, and troubleshooting.
The company has also partnered with the Water Technology B2B Trade Group to add the seminar "Introduction to Membrane Water Treatment, Making the Transition from Conventional." This seminar will be held four times in 2005 in various coastal states. The new seminar will outline the pros and cons and areas to consider when transitioning from conventional water treatment or starting a new facility using microfiltration, ultrafiltration, reverse osmosis, or desalination.
"This seminar will be designed as a 'fact-seeking' seminar without a sales pitch. It's guaranteed to offer a neutral point of view." said David Paul, president of DHP Inc.
Also for the municipal and point-of-use/ point-of-entry clientele, DHP will also be partnering with the Water Technology B2B Trade Group to offer a course related to water and bioterrorism. "Recognizing and Eliminating the Bioterrorism Threat to America's Water will focus on the types of water-borne agents that could be used and how they react to the chemisty of water. "Understanding these potential bioterrorism agents and how they work will help the industry to become better prepared for a bioterrorism attempt." said Paul.
David H. Paul, Inc will partner with Tall Oaks Publishing and their definitive journal for high purity water, Ultrapure Water Journal, to offer "Advanced Troubleshooting of Membrane Systems" (ATMS). This advanced training is designed for managers, lead operators, and others that already have some membrane water treatment system knowledge. It will be held Feb. 28-March 2 in Las Vegas, Nev., and the main focus is high-level problem detection through interactive workshops and real world examples.
In addition to above mentioned new courses and ATMS, one of the companies' standard seminars, "Reverse Osmosis Water Treatment," is getting a jolt of new content. The traditionally brackish water treatment training will now also cover seawater RO. ROWT will be held in Florida and California in 2005 in January and August, respectively.
"DHP has devoted the last two years to expanding our on-campus college degree programs. With curriculum improvements, the strongest advisory board we have ever had, plus new interest for new college partnerships, we can now cut loose with some new seminars and exciting new partnerships. I'm looking forward to it!" said Paul.
