Earlier this month, the WaterJet Technology Association announced the launch of a new series of educational webinars. The sessions, which are free to attend, aim to cover topics of interest surrounding waterjetting, vacuuming and industrial cleaning.

The programs will aim to be 45 minutes in length, including a 30-minute presentation and a 15-minute window for Q&A. The webinars will also be archived one month after airing, according to WJTA, and access to the recordings will also be free.

In late May, WJTA announced the decision to cancel its 2020 Expo, which was scheduled to take place in November in New Orleans.

“We were very excited for this year’s WJTA Expo after the positive response to the 2019 WJTA Conference & Expo educational program,” said WJTA Education Committee Chair Kerry Siggins.

“While it’s disappointing to lose the opportunity to connect in person, the online webinars will allow us to still present an engaging set of topics and also reach a broader audience of individuals who may be unable to attend an in-person event.”

A preliminary schedule of topics includes:

  • Turnarounds – Increase Tool Time and Decrease Downtime Through Proper Job Planning Part 1, with Bill Holladay, Jetech, Inc., Aug. 13 at 10 a.m. CDT;
  • Turnarounds – Risk Mitigation and COVID-19 Precautions Part 2, with Bradley Coble, Covestro, Aug. 27 at 10 a.m. CDT;
  • Confined Space Entry, with John Langlee, First Strike Safety Solutions, Oct. 8-10 a.m. CDT;
  • Leadership in the Field, with presenter TBA, Nov. 5 at 10 a.m. CDT; and
  • Grounding and Bonding in Vacuum Operations, with Richard Puig, Newson Gale, Inc., Dec. 10 at 10 a.m. CDT.

The first two webinars are currently open for registration.
