Certified Valves & Actuators Management Professional (CVAMP)

Valves and actuators are occasionally chosen incorrectly, used incorrectly, and eventually placed incorrectly. The course on valves and actuator technology aims to give students an understanding of valve and actuator technology. A variety of valves, including shut-off valves, solenoid valves, regulators, control valves, pressure relief valves, actuators, and valve components, will be covered in detail.

The goal of AIBM’s thorough training program for valves and actuators is to help participants comprehend the design processes and uses of these vital piping system components. Our lead instructors will impart thorough understanding of valve selection, materials, useful supporting techniques, and exact calculating procedures.

Certification Program Objectives:

  • Recognize the classification of valves
  • Determine and examine the key technologies used during the last control element.
  • Utilize control valve flow calculations (coefficients) to put the fundamentals of flow theory into practice.
  • Learn about the various valve types and how they are used.
  • Determine the proper specifications for trim choice, cavitation control, and noise reduction.
  • Identify and evaluate ANSI/DN with reference to pressure and size.
  • Examine and choose the ideal valve-actuator sequence and positioner.
  • Recognize and emphasize the fundamentals of preventive maintenance.
  • Where necessary, carefully implement online valve testing.
  • Analyze Hysteresis, stick-slip, and dead band.
  • Describe and examine the uses and restrictions of safety relief valves.

Certifying Examination:

  • To be certified as CVAMP, student should take up a 1.5 hours exam at the designated examination centers.
  • The qualifying exam would consist of 50 multiple choice questions, testing core certification modules.
  • Professionals with relevant experience and other qualifying criteria may be exempted from the examination.
