This course covers the fundamentals of AC and DC electricity in the context of the AC current with emphasis on resistors, inductors, capacitors, transformers, electrical quantities, and units of measure. Training begins with the concepts of Ohm’s law, Kirchoff’s voltage and current laws. Power factors and corrections are also covered along with an overarching discussion on safety precautions and procedures.
This course will introduce participants to how fluid power is used in the industry and review the major components found in fluid power systems. Safety precautions will be discussed along with location, proper component connections, effects of maintaining fluid cleanliness, and making adjustments on system operation. Discussion on the construction, operation and use of pneumatic components will include compressors, air motors, flow controls, directional valves and driers along with seals, gaskets, filtration, and circuit basics.
Programmable Logic Controllers I
This is an introduction course to teach participants about PLC systems, how they work, and how they are used to control processes and machines. This course is taught in a hands-on environment for optimal learning and skill transfer.
Programmable Logic Controllers II
Participants with a basic understanding of PLC systems can take this hands-on course to learn to isolate and diagnose problems with PLC systems. In the process, they will gain a solid understanding of troubleshooting and programming of these systems including monitoring PLC’s for faults and current status.
Motors & Controls
Participants will learn the theory and application of industrial-sized motors, their related control systems and units of measure. Proper maintenance and protection will also be covered along with control devices, motor control circuitry, control relays, motor starters, and single-phase motors.
