Motor Controls for Maintenance Technicians On-Site Training

This on-site training class is also available as Public Schedule Seminar.

Students will construct and test common motor control circuit. This will give them an understanding for how the circuits and components work, and a better understanding of how to quickly troubleshoot problems.

Course Description/Agenda


For workers in the industrial and manufacturing sectors, understanding electrical motor controls is a valuable skill for production managers, technicians, designers and line workers. This course is a comprehensive introduction to motor controls , covering the essential topics for employees working in a variety of industrial and production settings.

Students will understand, follow and troubleshoot motor control circuits and understand how components work to determine if they are bad. This will save the company money by only changing the bad parts and teach the technician to quickly and accurately diagnose and repair problems.

"DON'T BE A PARTS CHANGER"

This course is 80% Hands-On.

Participants will receive a college level textbook.
