Essentials of Industrial Electricity

What All Maintenance People Need To Know

Electrical Training Designed By And For Maintenance People

This electrical training course covers those things that a maintenance person needs to know to be effective. This course is not a course on theory, but instead, a practical approach covering things maintenance workers do on a daily basis.  Attendees will learn the practical principles and procedures to get the equipment up and running. We will include simple circuits, motor controls, 3-phase motors, 3-phase distribution, relays, contractors, motor starters, transformers, fuses, circuit breakers and much more.  We won’t waste your time on topics not relevant to your job. This course will give you a firm foundation you can build on. The instructor, Daryn Lewellyn, has almost thirty years of experience teaching this course. This course is a great refresher course for experienced people like electricians and engineers.
