BRISTOL, UK, Apr. 20, 2009 -- Over 100 engineers at Anglian Water in the UK have benefited from a pioneering training program developed and hosted by AUMA actuators. The courses are understood to be the first UK program to coach end-user operators in basic valve and actuator maintenance.
Designed to reduce down-time and improve efficiency, the courses give engineers the confidence, knowledge and practical skills to assess on-site maintenance requirements. As a result, the utility's staff are equipped with the necessary skills to address and action, as appropriate, situations including the re-setting, repairing and commissioning of valves and actuators.
AUMA emphasizes that the training is designed to provide front-line education, however, its field engineers are on hand to provide a highly responsive service if required.
All courses are assessed and AUMA is delighted to report that, from a maximum score of six, it has received average figures from Anglian Water of 5.6 for presentation, 5.7 for instructor qualities and 5.7 for presentation materials.
Anglian Water reports the benefits of the practical training program and confirms that AUMA is the first actuator supplier to take the initiative to educate its engineers.
