Instructor-Led Online Training

With Hands-On Lab Exercises

Live Online Training

Our Live Online courses are taught by a professional Instructor with decades of experience and applicable credentials and abilities. We understand the need for a hands-on component in any training, and we have developed courses that maximize the benefits of online instruction, while still offering the value of hands-on application. Unlike our competitors, our Live Online courses include hands-on lab exercises.

We offer Live Online programs because we realize that the challenges of traveling to a public course or arranging a full onsite course can be out of range of many needing training. The primary advantage of Live Online training is cost savings and simplified logistics.

Another important aspect of training is 1:1 time with an instructor. We include 1:1 instructor time for each student in all of our online courses and also schedule at least one hour of open Instructor access after each course session to allow for questions, clarifications, etc. 

We work very hard to develop online training that truly accomplishes a measurable improvement in the field and provides significant value to each student (and applicable organizations). This is not ‘check the box’ type of training, or simply training to ‘receive a certificate’ – Our live online courses were created to truly develop skills and boost abilities in the field where it matters.  

The scheduling, format, and delivery options are endless for online training. We’d love to discuss the possibilities with you.

Our ONLINE courses are offered in a variety of formats, including:

Scheduled Online Courses

Public Online Courses across the USA – typically in 2-4 hour sessions several times a week for 2-4 weeks to accommodate students with jobs or busy schedules. 

Private (Closed Group) Online Courses

for a specific group of customers (typically a plant or facility). Dates and hours can be flexed to suit customer & student needs. 

Materials Provided:

Hands-On Lab Kit

Electrical components and test equipment to be used in practical applications and troubleshooting exercises.

Student Lab Camera System

Used to view/show lab stations and results to the Instructor (this is provided if needed, and must be returned after completion of the course for return on the equipment deposit). 

Another option is for students to utilize their mobile phone system with our gooseneck mount. 

Test Equipment Options

In some cases, students may pay a smaller deposit if they utilize their own specific test equipment (and they benefit from using the actual equipment used in the field).

We can also offer guidance on how to save money on test equipment, such as purchasing used equipment from eBay and then reselling it after the course.

For industrial customers with numerous students in a program, we also offer the option to purchase equipment permanently for repeated use. This is a great option for clients with an ongoing training need. 

Scheduling

Flexible Schedule Possibilities

Live Online courses are typically offered in part-day schedules of a few hours per day several days per week until complete. We are able to vary the schedule days and times to accommodate the maximum numbers of students, so please contact us with specific schedule requests and we will try to accommodate your needs.

Live Online Course Offerings

This 32-hour course combines the Basic Electricity course and the Electrical Troubleshooting course. The course begins by establishing a strong foundation in basic electricity principles and progressively applies those concepts to enable students to troubleshoot typical electrical circuits. The ultimate goal of this course is to help students develop a logical approach to troubleshooting.

This 32-hour course focuses on introducing students to the fundamental concepts of industrial instrumentation, measurement, calibration, and controls. It addresses topics often overlooked in other training programs and aims to rectify common mistakes and problems encountered in the field.

The course is suitable for individuals ranging from mechanics and operators seeking to understand instrumentation associated with their equipment to senior instrument technicians and control engineers. Practical exercises and discussions center around real-world issues and utilize equipment such as Rosemount Smart transmitters, Fluke process meters/calibrators, and HART Communicators. The course covers the underlying concepts that many senior technicians may not fully understand, leading to mistakes and issues. Students engage in exercises such as transmitter calibrations, configurations, control loop setups, and troubleshooting.

Course objectives include understanding the 4-20mA control loop, SMART transmitters and their common functionality and misconceptions, instrument and transmitter calibration concepts, utilizing instrumentation test and calibration equipment, signal noise and filtering, control valve operation and concepts, feedback control methods, PID controls, troubleshooting instrumentation performance problems, process control strategies, process safety considerations, and safety instrumented systems. Hands-on exercises involve setting up, configuring, testing, and calibrating smart transmitters, troubleshooting 4-20mA loops and analog IO, analyzing control system performance, and conducting Safety Instrumented Systems proof testing. The course aims to provide a comprehensive understanding of industrial instrumentation and address common issues faced in the field.
