Who Should Attend?
This practical and intensive training course is especially designed for membrane-based water desalination and purification plant superintendents, engineers, operators, and maintenance technicians varied levels of field experiences, technical background and field training. Recommended level of experience is 1-5 years direct involvement in day-to-day plant operations. What you learn from the MASAR Course experience will not be anything you could be taught by your standard classroom, academic or on-line training courses.
The MASAR course was conducted by Eng. Mohamad Amin Saad, President and Principal Consultant & Trainer of MASAR Technologies, Inc., with head offices in the United States. Eng. Saad, one of the water desalination industry's leading and most recognized and experienced experts and trainers, has extensive field, technical and business expertise and field training experience in the water desalination and membrane technology industry totaling over 32 years, especially in designing, monitoring, optimizing and trouble-shooting tens of key brackish, seawater and industrial wastewater RO, UF and other membrane plants around the globe, especially in the Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Malta and the United States. Over 500 desalination industry professionals have been trained by MASAR courses and workshops led by Eng. Saad since 2002, and hundreds more as part of his job functions at various companies such as DuPont, ACWA Power International and its project companies.
Our training courses are distinct in the water desalination industry today where attendees receive a high-quality, interactive and multi-media CD-ROM with all presentations and technical materials. Attendees also get the opportunity to initiate one-on-one consultations with the instructor on their specific plant issues related to operational, fouling and O&M cost management.
