MAS Training Center

MAS S.A., exclusive representative, central distributor and business partner of Woodward in the Eastern Mediterranean, is also a Recognized Training Facility of Woodward. With this in mind, and wishing to best serve our clientele, we organize a series of seminars called “The Secret is Out” which are aimed to provide the participant with  specialized knowledge on various types of Woodward governor units.



These WOODWARD Seminars are:

Addressed to first engineers, superintended engineers, fleet managers and / or technical managers, and no prior knowledge is required in order to attend. Speakers are MAS engineers with an excellent span of technical knowledges on engines and therefore fully capable of understanding the problems that may arise from dysfunction of the speed controllers and how to solve them.

Designed to help participants acquire a comprehensive understanding of how a speed regulator works on the machine. Starting from the basic theory and the necessary knowledge, at the end of the seminars attendees will have the ability to handle simple issues (fitting, dismantling, adjusting a regulator, lever and air or motor) and complex problems (troubleshooting, emergency fixes, etc.) derived from automation.

Planned to cover each topic and include theory and hands-on training. The minimum number of participants in set seminars is six (6) and the maximum is ten (10). We can also offer tailor made seminars, in order to concentrate on specific needs. In such case, we will be needing at least six (6) participants from your company to create an exclusive seminar for you.

  • Basic operating principles of speed controllers (governors)
