Topics include theory and design, cleaning cycles, operation and maintenance and inspection techniques. After completion of this course, learners will be able to:

• List the major industrial applications for ESPs
• Explain the theory of operation of ESPs, using appropriate terminology
• Describe the major types/categories of ESPs
• List the main things to consider in designing an ESP
• List the major components of a typical ESP and explain the functions of these components
• Describe how ESP performance can be monitored by operators
• Explain in detail how to conduct an inspection of an ESP
