The first Certified Pump System Auditor (CPSA) training course since 2019 has been successfully and safely delivered to a group of pump professionals.
Following months of uncertainty due to the ongoing COVID restrictions, the British Pump Manufacturers Association (BPMA) finally ran its latest CPSA course, which included Shane Bates, of KSB, who gained his place by being the first person to score a perfect 100% on the BPMA’s Essentials E-Learning course.
CPSA is an industry-specific professional qualification devised and developed by the BPMA, an established body within the pump industry. The objective of the scheme is to help improve the levels of professionalism in the sector by creating a universally recognised industry ‘standard’ for those individuals tasked with assessing the performance of a pumping system.
Strictly adhering to the latest COVID-19 guidelines, the National Metalforming Centre in West Bromwich, where the BPMA offices are located, hosted the course, and provided a training facility that allowed socially distanced spacing for those students attending.
Being a four-day residential course, with participants staying at the near-by Mercure Hotel, further social distancing measures were in place throughout the duration of their stay, to ensure the safety of students and lecturers alike.
A date for the next CPSA course next year will be announced shortly, but anyone who is interested in attending should email
