BVAA In-house Training

BVAA’s Peter Churm delivering Valve & Actuator Training at CVS, Portlethen

It’s been a busy winter for the BVAA Training department! Just before Christmas we entertained the HSE’s COMAH team once again, and we saw record attendances at the March 2013 Training Fortnight, with a number of our traditional courses completely sold out.

There was also a surge in demand for Training Courses delivered ‘in-house’, with several members taking Training courses on the Pressure Equipment Directive, ATEX, etc.

BVAA technical stalwarts Peter Churm and Martin Greenhalgh have also been working on the development of some new courses for BVAA, and Peter Churm recently delivered a one-day ‘combined’ Valves and Actuators course for Control Valve Solutions (CVS) of Portlethen, Aberdeen.

“Full of information and very useful for a beginner – very well presented.”

BVAA received very good feedback from CVS delegates, including: -
• “Excellent – very informative” and
• “Full of information and very useful for a beginner – very well presented.”

CVS MD Mick Beavers commented, “It was a very worthwhile exercise. I thought it was well organised and well thought out.” BVAA’s Member Services Manager Karen Webb added, “There is a wealth of knowledge and experience within the BVAA and we are delighted to be able to facilitate the imparting of this to the next generation.”
