Course description

Understanding and Troubleshooting Motor Control - 1 Day Virtual Instructor-led Training

This 1-day interactive course is designed for all knowledge levels of technicians and focuses on giving attendees the knowledge and confidence to troubleshoot motor control circuits safely and efficiently. Most control circuit troubleshooting is completed with the circuit in an energized state so attendees will learn proper electrical safety procedures.

This course will cover the most common motor control circuits with easy-to-understand explanations of the components that make them up including selector switches, limit switches, control relays, contactors, motor starters, and more. It also covers the variety of ways speed and motor rotation are controlled.

Attendees will learn how to read an electrical schematic, systematically troubleshooting using it, and repair equipment quickly, to reduce downtime.
