Low Voltage Electrical Systems For Non-electrical Industrial Professionals

Low Voltage Electrical Systems For Non-electrical Industrial Professionals

This three-day, eight hours/day training is designed especially for non-electrical industrial professionals working in industrial plants and industries to increase productivity, effectiveness and flexibility in their workplace. It also provides an excellent foundation in electrical maintenance and troubleshooting for workers entering apprenticeship programs, leapfrogging them several years ahead in their knowledge, skills and abilities.

The successful student will receive a solid understanding of low voltage single and three phase electrical systems. The program places maximum emphasis on safe work practices and procedures, installation requirements, troubleshooting and preventive maintenance. This program saved one client a year of OJT with increases in safety, quality and productivity.

CSA Z462 and NFPA 70E require that non-electrical supervisors managing electrical crews be qualified to understand the safety, installation, maintenance and troubleshooting tasks that electrical workers perform daily. It includes a complete understanding of the requirements of CSA Z462 and NFPA 70E.


Who should attend:

This training is recommended for: Non-electrical industrial professionals, non-electrical supervisors who must know what their electrical subordinates are exposed to, millwrights, mechanics and others.


You will be able to:
