Solving Complex Electrical & Mechanical Systems For Heavy Equipment Technicians

Solving Complex Electrical & Mechanical Systems For Heavy Equipment Technicians

This three-day, eight hours/day program develops deductive reasoning abilities in heavy equipment technicians that can be applied to complex electrical and mechanical systems. It is guaranteed to significantly reduce equipment downtime and costs.

Over 1,000 lbs of project equipment is trailered to your site. This enables participants tospend 90% of their time troubleshooting realistic faults utilizing both hardwired (including CAN Bus) and software simulators under the guidance of a Master Troubleshooter.

Based on Canada Training Group’s proprietary Deductive Reasoning TM methodology, this program is flexible enough to develop strong processes in younger troubleshooters and still challenge experienced troubleshooters to fine-tune their skills.

Another major outcome from this training will be a huge increase in job satisfaction. Your troubleshooters will be keenly aware of their increased competence and feel capable of extraordinary achievement. The natural result is a dramatic increase in productivity; your people will see the impact of a job well done and will want to do more.


Who should attend:

This training is recommended for: Heavy equipment technicians, electrical and mechanical engineers, millwrights, and any other workers who must be relied on to quickly and accurately diagnose and fix electrical and mechanical systems.


You will be able to:

After the training you will be able to: Troubleshoot realistic faults utilizing both hardwired (including CAN Bus) and software simulators under the guidance of a Master Troubleshooter.
