February 20, 2012, 11:00 AM EST

The next opportunity to take the Compressed Air Challenge (CAC) Fundamentals of Compressed Air Systems WE (web-edition) will begin on February 20, 2012.

This web-based version of the popular Fundamentals of Compressed Air Systems training uses an interactive format that enables the instructor to diagram examples, give pop quizzes and answer students questions in real time. Subsequent classes will be on February 20, February 27, March 5 and March 12. The classes will begin at 11:00 AM eastern and will last approximately 2 hours each.

Like the popular in-person class, the web-based workshop is designed to teach facility engineers, operators, and maintenance staff how they can achieve 15-25 percent cost savings through proper operation and controls, system maintenance, and appropriate uses of compressed air. Both the in-person and web-based classes utilize the same basic content and adhere to the CAC's principles of product-neutrality and a focus on the systems approach to managing compressed air. As in the in-person class, every student completing the course will receive the renowned, Best Practices of Compressed Air Systems manual.

The curriculum will be organized into four 2-hour sessions:

1. Introduction, Why Care About Air and Study Your Supply Side

2. Understand Your Demands, Are You On Base

3. Controls

4. Maintain System Efficiency, Get With the Plan and Summary-Evaluation
