ELECTRICAL DIAGRAM ANALYSIS

The ability to read and interpret electrical prints is key to understanding the operation, maintenance and appropriate trouble response to power system equipment.

The purpose of this course is to provide the knowledge of the various types of electrical diagrams used in the industry, and to develop the skills necessary to read, draw, and interpret these diagrams. Technicians and engineers will learn to develop logical troubleshooting methods which will aid in the successful analysis of systems.

This class presents resources for predicting the likelihood of equipment failure, as well as a protocol  for clearly identifying problems when they occur. Common electrical devices and their operational requirements will be discussed.

Anyone who works on or near power generation, transmission, or distribution systems should consider attending this class. Managers, supervisors and administrators will also benefit from this course.

TROUBLESHOOTING FOR THE JOURNEYMEN LEVEL TECHNICIAN (INTRO & ADVANCED)

When a power system failure or major equipment break down occurs, all eyes are focused on the operations and maintenance department. Being prepared with the proper troubleshooting skills will help to reduce stress, allow clear thinking and effective problem solving, and ultimately reduce the length of an outage.

This purpose of this course is to present a logical approach to troubleshooting electrical power systems and equipment. It will provide necessary resources for predicting the likelihood of equipment failure and a systematic approach to placing a system back on line.

This class will discuss common electrical devices and their operational requirements, including demonstration of comprehensive diagram analysis for troubleshooting. Anyone who works with power generation, transmission, or distribution systems should attend this course. Supervisors, managers, safety personnel, and those responsible for ensuring a safe work environment will also find this course beneficial.
