CPD accreditation for pump training

02 August 2017

The British Pump Manufacturers Association (BPMA) has recently embarked on a process of securing CPD accreditation across its full pump training programme. 

Engaging in Continuing Professional Development (CPD) ensures that both academic and practical qualifications do not become out-dated or obsolete; allowing individuals to continually ‘up skill’ or ‘re-skill’ themselves, regardless of occupation, age or educational level.

The BPMA provides five ‘Lecture to Student’ based courses, and these recently updated training modules are the first to achieve CPD Accreditation. 

These courses cover the following key topics:

• Pumping fundamentals
• Pump selection
• Pump testing
• Pump systems, 
• Hydraulic design of centrifugal pumps (shortly to be accredited) 

CPD combines different methodologies to learning, such as training workshops, conferences and events, e-learning programs, best practice techniques and ideas sharing. All of this focuses an individual to improve and to have a clear and effective professional development.

This structured, practical and methodical approach to learning helps employers to keep key staff, and develop the skills & knowledge in their organisations to maintain a sustainable and competitive advantage.

BPMA also provide two e-learning courses – Introduction to Pumping Technology and Essential of Pumping Technology – which are independently accredited by the National Open College Network (NOCN). These two courses are shortly to be reviewed by CPD. 

The final BPMA course to get the CPD treatment will be the ‘Certified Pump System Auditor’ scheme. The CPSA scheme is an industry specific professional qualification developed by the BPMA. Its objective is to help improve the levels of professionalism in the sector by creating a universally recognised and respected “standard” for individuals assessing the performance of a pumping system.
