Why Take These Courses??
Our Electrical Engineering Training Course is designed to help electric power system engineers understand basic industrial, commercial and insitutional power systems design and engineering principles, as well as how to properly protect their electric power systems and then how to conduct and then implement an effective arc flash study, to properly protect electrical workers and equipment.

Who Should Take These
Electrical Engineering
Training Courses??
These Electrical Engineering Training courses are designed for plant and design electrical engineers and plant supervisors, inspectors, regulators, safety officers, technicians, electricians, who are responsible for the reliable operation and maintenance of industrial, commercial and insitutional electric power distribution systems. Plant, facility, and corporate electrical engineers dealing with one or more company distribution systems and consulting and utility engineers dealing with clients' systems. Consultants, architect-engineers will also find this course very beneficial.

Learn and Earn Continuing Education Units (CEU
Taking all three courses together will give a Student a Certificate from the Canadian Electricity Forum in "Industrial Electrical Engineering" worth a total of 4.2 CEU credits. CEUs are granted by the Engineering Institute of Canada. One CEU is equivalent to 10 professional development hours of instruction.

Arc Flash/Short Circuit Study Electrical Engineering Training Course

This 2-day Arc Flash/Short Circuit Study Engineering Course will provide students with an in-depth review of short circuit analysis problems in industrial, commercial and institutional power systems and provide the means for solving such problems, and discusses the impact of short-circuit fault currents on equipment selection. The course also highlights the differences in the computational approaches recommended in IEEE and IEC standards. The Arc Flash/Short Circuit Study Electrical Engineering Course component of this Electrical Engineering course is designed to help power system engineers understand how to implement an arc flash study into industrial, commercial and institutional power systems. A commercially available software program for performing fault analysis will be used by the presenter to solve example problems.

Course Objectives
Upon completion of this course, the student will learn:
  • How current NFPA 70E standards apply to your facility
  • Standards for limits of approach explained
  • Safe installation and maintenance of electrical equipment
  • Arc Flash Protection and Labeling
  • Which employees must be trained

Relay Coordination Training Course

Relay Coordination of various electrical equipment and apparatus requires a good understanding of phase and ground short circuit currents, detection, and safe clearing of the faulted equipment. This Relay Protection Coordination Study Course provides a practical and comprehensive description of the principles and concepts of analysis, application and operation of protection schemes for various power system elements such as feeders, transformers, motors, buses, generators, etc. The course starts with an overview of power system fundamentals, design and short circuit calculations which lead to the understanding of protection scheme requirements and their applications. Protection requirements for industrial plants, cogeneration, and interconnection with the utility power system are explained in detail. This course covers the subject of power system protection from a practical perspective, and includes important functional aspects such as testing and coordination of protection systems. This course is designed for individuals who are involved with industries and utilities which depend on proper system protection for operational efficiency and minimizing damage to equipment.

Course Objectives
Upon completion of this course, the student will learn:
  • Will reduce unnecessary downtime!
  • Provide recommended settings for adjustable trip circuit breakers and relays.
  • Will increase coordination (selectivity) between devices.
  • Identifiy deficiencies in system protection.
  • Will provide recommended solutions to help correct your problem areas.
  • Reviews and discusions on the use of system devices with respect to National Electric Code requirements, and appropriate ANSI/IEEE standards
