"Do the employees on the shop floor still consider all air to be free, especially compressed air? How efficient is your compressed air system (cfm/kW)? What does it cost to run your entire compressed air system? What energy efficiency projects have you implemented over the last three years? If any of these questions piques your curiosity then this course is for you!"
