Compressed Air Systems
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course describes information about how a compressed air system can be optimized to improve the overall efficiency of the system.


A large amount of energy can be lost in compressed air systems that are not properly designed and maintained.  There are many opportunities available to minimize the energy lost in compressed air systems.


This 2 PDH online course is applicable to engineers who design or maintain compressed air systems, as well as engineers interested in learning more about improving the efficiency of a compressed air system.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Alternative strategies for low-pressure end uses
  • Analyzing your compressed air system
