Course Description

Accurate troubleshooting and subsequent repair of electrical equipment is necessary in today’s sophisticated industrial environments to ensure continued efficient operation and productivity of the equipment. Delegates are encouraged to raise queries both during and at any time after attending the course. Delegates are also encouraged to bring any specific issues that they may wish to raise to this course.

Course Objectives

  • To develop a structured approach to electrical troubleshooting using common terminology and to provide troubleshooting methods and solutions for various electrical equipment and control systems problems. To develop a better understanding of various test equipment used in electrical troubleshooting.
  • To develop a better understanding of various electrical equipment and control systems design, functionality and failure modes.
  • To better understand work practices, which allow for successful troubleshooting including job plans.
  • To provide examples of successful troubleshooting techniques and ‘hands on’ experiences plus case studies and group problem solving exercises.
  • To provide troubleshooting methods and solutions for various electrical equipment and control systems problems.
