Dresser-Rand Offers a Host of Product Training Programs for 2014


HOUSTON, TEXAS – November 26, 2013 – Dresser-Rand, a global supplier of rotating equipment and aftermarket parts and services, is offering a comprehensive list of product training programs in 2014 designed to help clients reduce equipment maintenance costs and ensure product reliability.

Product training is offered for centrifugal compressors, gas turbines, steam turbines, low-speed process gas reciprocating compressors, high-speed separable gas field compressors, and control systems. New this year, we are offering training courses on Guascor® engines and Synchrony® active magnetic bearings.

Dresser-Rand product training programs are designed for a wide range of client operations, maintenance and reliabilityengineering personnel. Full-time instructors employ “building block” and “team teaching” techniques to go from equipment fundamentals for the new employee all the way to complete machinery overhauls and design concepts for more experienced attendees.

In addition to open registration classes, Dresser-Rand also offers on site, custom training tailored specifically to the client’s desired class dates, number of students, student mix (operators, mechanics, engineers, etc.), student experience level, machine-specific technical information, overall job scope, and any special transportation/shipping requirements. Customized training programs specific to a client’s machinery can also be arranged.

In the United States and Canada, hands-on training features portable training units and workstations that include full-size Dresser-Rand equipment that can be transported directly to the client’s facility to reduce overall training costs and associated trainee travel expense. If there is a group of people to be trained from a specific facility, Dresser-Rand will research the equipment records and provide a program that is matched to that specific machinery.

Web-based Training
Another integral component of Dresser-Rand’s offerings is its web-based training (WBT) that covers operation and maintenance of reciprocating compressors, steam turbines and turbomachinery. These courses are designed for the intermediate to advanced level student and include many learning activities that enhance knowledge retention.

We have established a business relationship with DuPont Sustainable Solutions, a recognized leader in flexible learning solutions. Dresser-Rand WBT courses are delivered via the award-winning DuPont™ eLearning Suite format. All courses will be AICC- and SCORM-certified, enabling integration with a variety of learning management systems.
