Training Methodology

The instructor relies on a highly interactive training method to enhance the learning process.  This method ensures that all the delegates gain a complete understanding of all the topics covered.  The training environment is highly stimulating, challenging, and effective because the participants will learn by case studies which will allow them to apply the material taught to their own organization.

 

Each delegate will receive a copy of the following materials written by the instructor:

  1. Excerpt of the relevant chapters from the “ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT HANDBOOK” published by McGraw-Hill in 2003 (600 pages)
  2. Practical manual (300 pages)

Who Should Attend

  • Engineers of all disciplines
  • Managers
  • Technicians
  • Maintenance personnel
  • Other technical individuals
