Lacey, WA, February 01, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Engineered Software, Inc., an independent technology company developing next generation hydraulic analysis software today announced a new division, Fluid Fundamentals Training. The first new product from Fluid Fundamentals Training, titled Piping System Fundamentals, provides a comprehensive look at liquid piping systems and how they work.
Piping System Fundamentals is a two-day course using a minimum of math formulas with an emphasis on understanding the relationships between components making up a piping system. The course awards continuing educational credits or professional development hours upon completion. The first of the six training courses is set for March 26-27, 2008, in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Ray Hardee, Professional Engineer and Chief Engineer for Engineered Software, Inc., will provide live instruction for the courses.
“This new training course is perfect as a refresher course for engineers and technicians in the liquid pipeline industry and other businesses that deal with liquid flow in pipes. That can include new graduates, people switching job duties, or just individuals who want to understand an industry that can seem somewhat complex,” said Ray Hardee, P.E. and Chief Engineer at Engineered Software, Inc. “We wanted to provide training in an area that no one seemed to be offering, and at a pace and price point that people would appreciate.”
“There has been a steady growth in demand for a comprehensive class on piping systems as the typical piping system designer/operator has a diversified background,” said Michael Blondin, Vice President of Marketing and Sales. “We are committed to meeting this demand with professional quality training materials and real-world examples that attendees can take back and apply to their own jobs.”
The new training class covers piping basics, the ins and outs of pipelines, pumps, and other components, as well as discusses how to minimize capital, operating and maintenance costs involved in system operation. Attendees are given the newest version of the Crane Technical Paper No. 410 (TP410) and the new book Piping System Fundamentals: the Complete Guide to Gaining a Clear Picture of Your Piping System, written by the course instructor Ray Hardee, P.E.
“We hope this training better reflects the changing needs of the liquid pipeline industry as well as the needs of individuals and organizations,” said Blondin. “By focusing on core design principles and common piping system scenarios, this new training is much more in line with real-life job requirements and demands. It’s training that just about anyone dealing with liquid flow through pipes can use.”

Fluid Fundamentals Training two-day classes are priced at $895. The other spring training dates are April 9-10, April 16-17, April 23-24, May 14-15, and May 21-22.
