Classes include preparation for code exams, discussions on electrical safety, OSHA requirements and hands on participation to enhance maintenance skills.
Motor Predictive Maintenance (PdM), February 1-2, 2007
Vibration and improper alignment are the leading causes of motor failures. At this two-day course, attendees will learn why vibration is damaging and how to measure, diagnose and correct vibration issues. Motor electrical testing, bearing selection, alignment considerations and calculations, couplings, and specifications are all covered in detail. Attendees will use a variety of field test and alignment equipment to ensure proper performance of these critical functions on the job. Class fee is $680.00 per person.
Electrical Safety for Managers, February 5, 2007
This one-day course answers the questions and needs of supervisors, managers and engineers who are responsible for or supervise electrical workers. Learn what your exposure is in the event of an accident; what is required of you and how to protect your company and your workers. This program offers solutions to those who are concerned about what is needed to show OSHA "Good Faith Effort", limit fines and liability, and ensure a safe work site. Each attendee will receive a copy of "The Electrical Safety Program Book" by Ken Mastrullo and Ray Jones, which is used as the course text. This course is offered in tandem with our High and Low Voltage Electrical Safety course to provide maximum benefit and meet OSHA-mandated safety training requirements. Class fee is $350.00 per person.
Electrical Safety for Qualified Electrical Workers, February 6-7, 2007
This two-day electrical safety program focuses on the practical application of the OSHA regulations & the NFPA 70E, rather than just explaining them. It is designed to meet the mandated OSHA electrical safety training requirements for qualified electrical workers [Fed/OSHA 1910.331-.335 (Electrical Safety Work Practices)]. Hazards of electricity, NFPA 70E (2004 edition), Electrical Hazard Analysis & PPE Assessments, Hot-Work Permits & Safety Electrical One-Line Diagrams (SEOLD) are all taught from the standpoint of field experience. Hands-on training sessions reinforce safety-critical areas of the course, such as testing for the absence of voltage, inspection and proper use of electrical PPE and safe operation of circuit breakers and switches. Attendees also receive a free copy of the NFPA 70E. Class fee is $680.00 per person.
Electrical Safety for Utilities, February 8, 2007
This 8-hour program is conducted at the conclusion of our Electrical Safety for Qualified Electrical Workers program and continues with the requirements for OSHA 29CFR1910.269, “Electrical Power Generation, Transmission and Distribution”. Not only are utilities covered by this regulation, but also industrial establishments that have medium and high voltage distribution systems, such as substations, at their site. Hazards faced by employees performing construction or maintenance work on electric power generation, transmission and distribution installations pose a significant risk of injury or death to those employees. Over a 45-year working lifetime, more than 14 of every 1,000 line workers will die from hazards posed by their work. Because line workers are allowed to work very close to electric power lines and equipment, they face a high risk of electrocution. It is important that they have specialized training. Initial, one-time instruction is not sufficient to ensure that employees will use safe work practices all of the time. This specialized program provides the training needed to reinforce the need for safe work practices by linemen and others involved with high-voltage power systems. Class fee is $350.00 per person.
Equipotential Grounding, February 9, 2007
This 8-hour program provides an in-depth discussion of the equipotential grounding requirements, procedures and methods for both overhead and underground installations. Normally energized lines and equipment that have been deenergized will sometimes permit employees to become accidentally energized. Grounding lines and equipment are used to protect employees from injury should such reenergizing occur, as well as protect against induced voltages and static charges on a line. Grounding practices that do not provide an equipotential zone in which an employee is safeguarded from voltage differences do not provide complete protection. This course provides the training needed to ensure employees are adequately protected. Class fee is $400.00 per person.
Substation Maintenance Seminar, February 12-16, 2007
This updated four-and-a-half day course includes what every supervisor and manager needs to know about managing the electrical safety of employees and how to determine maintenance intervals to maximize cost savings and reliability from your equipment. The focus is on what to do, when to do it, and how to interpret test results. No hands-on sessions, but it does include demonstrations and practical exercises. Attendees receive a copy of NETA’s latest maintenance and/or acceptance testing specifications. Class fee is $1530.00 per person.
Programmable Logic Controllers, February 12-15, 2007
Have programmable logic controllers (PLC's) and don't know how to troubleshoot them? Learn how at our four-day PLC course designed for electricians, plant engineers and maintenance personnel responsible for maintaining, troubleshooting, and operating PLC's. Connect PLC's and field devices in this hands-on course, as well as troubleshoot and program common PLC's. Class fee is $995.00 per person.
Electrical Safety Refresher Training, February 19, 2007
This 8-hour electrical safety refresher course is designed for personnel who have already completed the OSHA-mandated electrical safety training (such as our Electrical Safety for Qualified Electrical Workers course). Attendees will benefit from examples and videos designed to reacquaint them with electrical hazards and the need for using PPE. Arc Flash Labels, shock and arc flash approach boundaries and choosing Personal Protective Equipment are covered as well as Energized Electrical Work Permits and placing equipment in an Electrically-Safe Work Condition. Class fee is $350.00 per person.
Fundamentals of AC Drives, February 22-23, 2007
This two-day course covers maintenance and troubleshooting of modern digital AC drives and hands-on training in programming, troubleshooting, and predictive maintenance (PdM) techniques. Toshiba, Hitachi, and GE drives are covered in detail, but other drives can be covered as needed. Class fee is $680.00 per person.
Low/Med Voltage Circuit Breaker Maintenance, February 26-March 1, 2007
This course covers theory, construction, operation, troubleshooting and control circuits for 480V to 15,000V air-magnetic & vacuum circuit breakers. Learn what tests to do and how to interpret the results. Students disassemble a wide variety of circuit breakers, perform maintenance, reassemble breakers, then test during the hands-on labs. Class fee is $1,530.00 per person.
