Training courses are held on the first day of the Symposium, at a location in central Calgary, Alberta. Past courses have ranged in subjects from pumping basics, to mechanical seals. These Training Courses are taught by experts in their field and provide a excellent opportunity to pose questions of the instructor's if more information is desired.


Courses can be used for APEGA continuing education credits.

The courses offered typically have cost $500.00 for the full day. Included in the cost of the courses: lunch, refreshments, and a course specific training manual.
