The Hydraulic Institute (HI) has entered a Training Partner Agreement with Grundfos USA , one of the world’s leading pump manufacturers, that allows both organizations to leverage high quality, co-branded educational and training programs designed for pump end-users, distributor and engineering consulting firms. Through this Training Partner Agreement, both companies will sponsor technical webinars and e-learning courses focused on a variety of pump topics and host the growing Pump Systems Optimization courses to the broad pump end-user marketplace.
Dennis R. Wierzbicki, President, Grundfos USA states, “We are excited about this new Training Partner Agreement with HI. Grundfos fully supports HI’s mission to deliver excellent technical education programs that focus on improving pump performance and extending product life cycles.”
