Pumping is a process – but it is also an industry and a career. As such it is emerging as an attractive choice for it individuals with a wide range of aptitudes and skills who want to put them to meaningful use.
To help build awareness among newcomers and educate them on the industry, the Hydraulic Institute has launched two key campaigns designed to inform the future workforce of the impressive range of careers a pump professional can have.
This is just a first step on a long journey to connect a new generation with career paths and a community they may never have considered.
