Level II dynamic motor monitoring

Course description

This course is designed to build upon the knowledge obtained by previous course work and significant field experience with dynamic motor monitoring equipment. This course will provide instruction on detailed diagnosis of data through the use of case study presentations, hands-on data analysis of past problems, and hands-on live motor acquisition and analysis in a laboratory environment. A final written and practical exam is required for qualification. Seminar price includes course materials, lodging and most meals. For pricing or additional information, contact training coordinator Jenny Ray at 970-282-1200.
