Troubleshooting Complex Electrical Systems

Analytically Troubleshoot Complex Electrical Systems with Deductive Reasoning

This three-day program is designed for electrical troubleshooters and is guaranteed to improve their troubleshooting processes and significantly reduce downtime costs. We have distilled our 5 day course down to an essential masterclass over 3 days with a max class size of 5 (Down from 8) You will have direct video and audio communication between yourself and the instructor and other attendees at all times.

This system is a product of over 30 years of refined development. Thousands of electrical professionals from every industry in the world have attended, and the testimonials speak for themselves. This program will greatly challenge experienced troubleshooters in their skills and their preconceptions but is also flexible enough to develop strong fundamental processes in newer troubleshooters.

They do not teach this methodology in university or technical college, as you cannot begin to appreciate and fully understand it until you are already a credentialed electrical professional. Any troubleshooter determined to improve their game will be able to apply our Analytical Electrical Troubleshooting TM methodology to electrical and other systems, collectively saving hundreds of thousands of dollars of downtime during the career of the successful participant.

It is easy to troubleshoot a familiar system but what happens when they are presented with something they have never experienced? When we watch these troubleshooters in slow motion on an unfamiliar problem we see that more than half of their testing is wasted because they do not use a logical, analytical, planned approach. Hours, and sometimes days, drag on before faults are found. Our experience shows that we can improve the skills of experienced troubleshooters 25%, 200-300% in others and immeasurably for some. This translates into major reductions in unplanned downtime.

Learn the mental processes used to best solve technical problems with engaging and sometimes infuriating projects and systems!

This course will give your troubleshooters the logic roadmap that can be successfully applied to any problem, even mechanical or coding. With a large array of electrical, electronic and other simulators we create problems that require troubleshooters to engage the parts of their brains that are used during ALL troubleshooting situations.

To drill this into your troubleshooters we provide them with an unlimited amount of real life problems and as they gain mastery they slowly and then quickly increase their speed and accuracy.

Just like an NBA shooting coach or a PGA swing coach, we start right at the basics to make sure nothing is missed and then we guide them through an escalating series of increasingly complex problems. At critical milestones, we give your troubleshooters innovative tools and concepts that significantly accelerate their troubleshooting speed and accuracy, resulting in huge gains in their confidence to solve complex industrial problems correctly in record time!

A 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.
