WPN101 - Basic Pneumatic Practical Webinar

WPN101 - Basic Pneumatic Practical Webinar

This webinar will teach you the basic concepts and principles of pneumatic technology.

Practical exercises will be performed by each participant on his/her own pc/laptop using our award-winning FluidSIM software, while interacting with our experienced facilitators.

Content, outcomes and exercises are based on the Basic Pneumatic face-to-face training.



Target group:

Everybody who has to deal with pneumatic systems in their working environment. This format of training is ideal for first-time users of the technology, refresher courses, preparation for face-to-face training courses and group trainings across cities, countries and continents. 

This platform makes training possible for those who are not able to attend face-to-face training courses.

In-house custom webinars are also available on request.
