Motor training (on-site) - testing theory, equipment operation and diagnostics

Course description

This on-site seminar allows for customized instruction to meet your company's specific training needs. The seminar can be a mix of classroom instruction, classroom demonstration, hands-on instruction and field testing. Through consultation, we can tailor training to match specific needs and knowledge level.

On-site seminars are typically comprised of 4-6 hours of classroom instruction and 2-4 hours of field/workshop training. The hands-on time can vary with the number of students attending. Materials you will need to provide include: an LCD projector, whiteboard/flip chart, small three-phase motor, DC motor and/or armature, and a typed student list of all attendees. The instructor will bring a tester if you do not have one available at the time of the class. Use of your test equipment is highly recommended.
