Eletrical - Electronic Courses

Industrial Electrical Maintenance Training Curriculum 

This course is designed to meet the training needs of plant maintenance personnel engaged in the day-to-day troubleshooting and fault correction of industrial electrical equipment. It is appropriate for electrical maintenance personnel in need of a review of electrical basics and an introduction to more complicated industrial controls and test equipment. It is also suited for mechanical maintenance personnel that take part in plant electrical maintenance activities. The course can be customized to include examples of specific components, test equipment, and documentation found at the plant.
