The British Pump Manufacturers’ Association (BPMA) and the Association of Electrical and Mechanical Trades (AEMT) have signed a Mutual Cooperation Agreement. The agreement covers a range of collaborative ideas and opportunities, primarily geared around the development of improved skills and enhanced technology understanding across the industrial and engineering arena. It will allow both parties to explore additional content to strengthen their existing range of training courses. Working on possible compliance and legislative related issues and other factors within the repair and maintenance of Pumps and Motors will also form a key part of the arrangement.
The two bodies have shared many similar interests over the years, increasingly around international standards and energy use reduction measures.
However, during recent discussions regarding the new ‘Pump Repair and Maintenance’ training course which the BPMA has developed, it became evident that further opportunities existed for the potential benefit of both memberships and the market at large.
