Federal training, leadership training and management training for government employees and the general public.
This NCED resident training course provides comprehensive instruction which encompasses the ControlLogix, CompactLogix, and FlexLogix control system platforms currently utilized on a wide variety of equipment. The primary focus is on developing the skills essential to maintaining quality performance of Allen-Bradley Programmable Automation Control Systems (PACs), and restoring malfunctioning systems to operational status with minimal down-time and resources.
This course provides knowledge, understanding, and skill in the use of the National Electrical Code (NEC).
Introduction to the basic principles of electricity, direct current (DC), alternating current (AC), series, parallel and series/parallel circuits, electrical formulas, generators, reactive/capacitive circuits, electrical test instruments, and solid state devices. Electrical and mechanical safety is stressed by discussions of equipment conditions and proper use of personal safety practices. This course is Part One of two courses. Reference Part Two, Industrial Electrical Service, 55687-05.
This course provides application of electrical principles up to 480 volts, alternating current (AC), transformers, motors and motor controls, and wiring methods. Instruction is a combination of classroom discussion and laboratory training on installation, troubleshooting, repair and preventive maintenance of building electrical and basic conveyor motor control systems. Emphasis will be placed on electrical and mechanical safety and utilization of the National Electrical Code.
This course provides intensive hands-on training utilizing industrial components related to hydraulic and pneumatic systems. Students will learn to safely work with fluid power systems, to identify components, to read schematics and to improve equipment efficiency. The emphasis will be on safety, while receiving 4 days of hydraulics, 4 days of pneumatics with 3 hours of hands-on lab activities per day.
This course is designed to teach students the safe and proper use of hand tools, portable electric and common shop equipment. Students will use tachometers, rulers, calipers, and micrometers. This course will allow students to be able to define mechanical fundamentals, identify basic machine structure, match tools to specific tasks, and use technical drawings. Students will perform such tasks as measure and cut tubing, mill aluminum, measure and adjust chain and belt drive mechanisms, troubleshoot failures, and more.
This course will offer training in the basic concepts and troubleshooting of AC and DC industrial application power distribution, adjustments, fault monitoring, fuses, circuit breakers, emergency stop and interlock lines, motor control lines, solid state and mechanical relays, tachometers and jam detection circuits. The course provides students with basic computer concepts related to maintenance, and heavy hands-on interaction with equipment and tool application. Students will build an electronics project board.
This course will involve students in theory of operation and practical hand-on experiments and troubleshooting of direct current, alternating current, analog and digital electronics disciplines. Students will use electronic trainers, oscilloscopes, function generators and digital volt ohm amp meters to work on electrical circuits; troubleshoot an inductor and capacitor; learn the theoretical operation of a transformer; perform analysis of a transistor circuit and more.
In this course, students use computer simulation of five different circuits to practice up to 60 problems. Analytical Troubleshooting (ATS) involves the use of a DVOM trainer, on the student's desk, to locate opens and shorts to ground. Accurate documentation is stressed as the student follows the troubleshooting process from beginning to end for each problem. The correct troubleshooting answer is a result of proper application of the troubleshooting process.
Key elements of ATS are:
• Fast paced
• A maximum of 10 students per class
This course focuses primarily on National Electric Code (NEC) compliance, job planning, bending, installing and safety as it applies to thin-wall conduit or EMT. Blueprint reading, wire and other material selection will also be presented to enhance the knowledge of the products which will permit the student to work efficiently in the labs and on the job. This course will help promote a savings in time, money, and material resources for organizations.
