    With this in mind, Salvo created a series that focuses on a holistic approach that will ensure successful project delivery. The 2-day Project Scheduling and Risk Management Masterclass will help delegates learn how to develop an accurate schedule and identify project risks more efficiently. Important sessions to be discussed in the event include best practices in scheduling, schedule and budget risk analysis, and risks in contracting. Followed by the 3-day Cost Engineering and Budget Management for Projects Masterclass, delegates will also learn how to ensure appropriate balance between technical aspects and related costs of projects. Through interactive discussions and exercises, delegates will be taught important techniques on budget and costs controls and Earned Value Management.

    The international trainer for these courses was a member of the Board of Directors for the Project Management Institute (PMI) with over 35 years of experience in project and program management. He is the president of an international firm that offers consultation and training in project management. In 2009, he won PMI’s Significant Contribution Award for being actively involved in the organization, having served on both local and national committees. Companies that have benefitted with the trainer’s expertise include Meralco PowerGen Corporation, Philippine Airlines, National Grid Corporation of the Philippines, Chevron, Eskom, General Electric, and more.

Without a strong compliance culture, the smooth operation of businesses is at stake.

  • Philippine pumps course to focus on improving energy efficiency

    shutterstock_142279031

    Salvo Global will organize a masterclass dedicated on improving pumps entitled Mastering Pump Operation, Maintenance, and Efficiency which will target professionals closely working with pumps and piping systems. The course will be held on 26-28 September 2016 in Makati, Philippines.

    Despite global economic slowdown, Philippines is one of the few Asian countries experiencing a strong and stable economic growth. Manufacturing, construction, and utilities industries have greatly contributed to the growth for the first quarter of the year. Aside from that, a steady increase in energy consumption can also be observed in the recent statistics provided for by the Department of Energy. While many studies have not reached a consensus regarding the direct relationship of economic growth and energy use, an increase in energy consumption is understandable due to the increase in production and distribution of goods and services. Given that we’re currently facing a global energy crisis, what can companies do to lower costs and improve energy efficiency without compromising operations?

    With industries relying heavily in rotating equipment – specifically pumps – in mind, Salvo’s course aims to give professionals a more in-depth understanding to pumps and systems. A detailed understanding on the ins and outs of pumps can help in reducing maintenance cost and improve energy efficiency. Using case studies, practical exercises and working examples, delegates will be able to analyze the most critical pump issues and how to solve them. The course will tackle key factors affecting pump performance, pump selection, fluid selection, types of service, drive, and most especially, the latest standards in pumps.

    The trainer to lead the course is a pump expert with more than 40 years of experience working in the pumps industry. His work with pumps covers manufacturing, maintenance, monitoring, consultation, and sales holding several key positions in the industry.
