AVK Holding established The Academy in September 2016. The Academy is an in-house training facility with a 40-seater seating capacity. The institute showcases an impressive flow lab which demonstrates the flow of water through a series of valves allowing attendees to gain a comprehensive understanding of water related processes. Since its establishment, two courses have been launched; The Valves Fundamentals Course, which provides a sound introduction to acquire an essential knowledge of valves, in theory and practice, and The Advanced Valves Course which provides greater insight into principles and practices that address the theories of fluid pressure, fluid flow and field applications. Both courses are accredited by ECSA (Engineering Council of Southern Africa) and attendees receive 2 CPD points upon completion.
