THE MATERIAL OFFERED HERE REPRESENTS THE CLIMAX OF MY MANY YEARS OF SUBJECT AND TRAINING EXPERIENCE !

For many years, I have been working with animating and better illustrating PowerPoint teaching presentations in a unique way. These are all done with a voice-over sound-track. The objective is to present to Learners thorough and completely digestible learning material, that can be studied on a Laptop, a PC or, for group learning, by use of a Data Projector.

I have enjoyed very many years of 'hands-on' practical experience, and have gained a passion for passing this on. In addition to my teaching projects, this has been by way of writing technical articles in various South African Trade magazines over the years. (This since 1979. Indeed, I wonder whether you were you even born then?) Over recent years these have been published in the very well known and popular RACA Magazine, where I present a monthly column, "Our Industry". This widely-read column is tailored to provide gap-filling technical information in a digestible way.

My 'live' teaching dates back to the days of the former Technikons. It has recently included periodic Workshops, presented over about 3 years on behalf of SAIMechE. I have gained a great deal to pass on, together with having  developed, and steadily improving upon, a somewhat unique technique for being able to achieve this objective.

Rotary compressor.

Reciprocating compressor.  
The material is presented in 9 Chapters. A back-to-back run-through would probably take about 6 hours. But sufficient study material is incorporated to provide in-depth learning that will in all likelihood require some months of periodic study for the Learner to properly absorb the subject matter. This material is fully suited for in-house group training.
