“New year – new me” Does that sound familiar? At the start of the new year, many of us are turning our attention from the accomplishments of the past year to new goals and resolutions for the year ahead.
Here at Kaeser, we strongly believe in ongoing professional development both for our own employees and our customers. The more we know, the better we can advise and support our customers. This is why Kaeser Compressors’ training department holds close to 100 internal training classes a year (that is just in the US). In 2018 alone we spent 215 days in a classroom. That’s a big investment in education.
Beyond that, we are always encouraging our customers to learn more, dive deeper, and think outside the box regarding their compressed air, vacuum and blower systems. The more you know about compressed air, the more efficiently and reliably you can make it.
To that end we have teamed up with several industry media partners to present free webinars throughout the year to share lessons learned and best practices from compressed air and blower experts. Here is a schedule of events:
- March 12th — New Equipment Digest (archived webinar available)
- April 25th — Blower & Vacuum Best Practices
- May 30th — Plant Services
- June 5th — Water & Wastes Digest
- June 6th — Engineering360 (IEEE GlobalSpec)
- July 18th — Compressed Air Best Practices
- August 21st — Plant Services
- October 8th — New Equipment Digest
You can register to attend the live session, or if you prefer, watch the archived version as your schedule allows. Many webinars offer additional resources for download that pertain to the webinar topic and you can usually download the slides as well.
Want to educate yourself on other industry topics? These publications produce many webinars on a number of topics for your plant and are conducted by industry experts. While the presenters typically have an affiliation with a solution provider, the media hosts ensure the webinars are educational in nature and are not a sales push. Here are some industrial magazines’ webinar pages to take a look at:
- Compressed Air Best Practices
- Blower & Vacuum Best Practices
- Engineering360 (IEEE GlobalSpec)
- New Equipment Digest
- Plant Engineering
- Plant Services
- Water & Wastes Digest
Registration isn’t open for all the webinars yet, so we will update this post as registrations open. Subscribe to our blog (look for the “Follow via email” button at the top right of this page) to get updated on when registration opens or take some time and look at some of our archived webinars here.
We hope education is a goal for you in 2019 and that you will join us at one of our webinars this year. We would also appreciate hearing other goals you have for 2019, and if you have any recommendations on webinars you’ve found helpful, please share with us as well.
