Following on from the recent announcement that the BPMA’s ‘Lecture to Student’ training courses are now CPD accredited, the organisation has announced that both of its E-Learning courses have also achieved CPD status. 

The independent pump training courses, which the BPMA have been successfully running since the mid 1990’s, have helped equip many hundreds of individuals with the knowledge and skills required to assist pump companies to stay one step ahead of the competition. 

As part of its ongoing commitment to this important aspect of its service provision, the BPMA has embarked on a process of securing CPD accreditation across its full training programme.

Engaging in Continuing Professional Development 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 two E-Learning courses to achieve this much valued accreditation, both of which are already independently accredited by the National Open College Network (NOCN), cover the following key subjects:-

• Introduction to Pumping Technology
• Essentials of Pumping Technology

The final BPMA course to get the CPD treatment will be the ‘Certified Pump System Auditor’ scheme; 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 operational performance of a pumping system.
