AIA Learning Units Eligible

This course has been approved by AIA for continuing education credits. The AIA requires that its registered architect members earn 18 Learning Unit (LU) hours of continuing education credit annually (eight hours of which must be related to Health, Safety, and Welfare topics and four of those eight in Sustainable Design) to remain in good standing. Architectural boards in 40 states, 10 Canadian Provinces, and 19 countries have implemented mandatory continuing education (MCE) for re-licensure.

The Association of Energy Engineers is an approved training provider within the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Continuing Education Systems (CES) Registered Provider program.


BOBBY RAUF , P.E., C.E.M., MBA, most recently served as a senior staff engineer at PPG Industries, Inc. He brings to this program hands-on experience in a broad spectrum of areas within large industrial plant engineering and plant maintenance departments, including electrical, controls, energy and mechanical projects. Mr. Rauf has also served as adjunct professor at Gardner-Webb University since 1989, where he has instructed classes in both the B.A. and M.B.A. programs. His teaching experience also includes conducting professional development courses at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. He holds a process controls-related patent.

The Electrical Engineering Fundamentals for Non-Electrical Engineers Online Seminar is designed for those who are not intimately familiar with electrical engineering principles and practices, and who prefer the convenience of online training. Those who will benefit most from this program include:

  • Plant engineers and managers
  • Energy engineers and managers
  • Facility managers
  • Facility maintenance professionals
  • Building owners and managers
  • Operations managers
  • Maintenance contractors / consultants

Presented online in a series of two live three-hour and one live 2-hour time modules, this seminar is designed to provide professional training covering the essential aspects of electrical engineering principles and practices of greatest relevance and practical value to non-electrical engineers.

You can participate in the seminar from your office, home, or anywhere you have access to the internet and a phone or VOIP. You'll have opportunities to interact with your instructor and colleagues in real time during the live teleconferencing sessions, as well as in the time between sessions.


This seminar is specifically designed for plant engineers, maintenance engineers, technicians, facilities managers and other facility professionals who would like to gain an understanding of the basic principles of electricity in a simple, easy to grasp format. As an attendee you will learn how to perform straightforward and common calculations associated with voltage, current, power and power factor. The instructor will also present valuable charts and tables which you can utilize as alternate method for estimating current, voltage and power. Practical examples of electrical applications in industrial settings will be used to demonstrate the topics and procedures covered. Specific topics will include:

  • Principles of electricity, AC and DC
  • Electrical code and safety
  • Electrical equipment and instrumentation in industrial applications
  • Electrical control systems
  • Electrical drawings and documentation
  • Electrical power bills, and ways to reduce energy costs

Electrical equipment, components, devices and test instrumentation will be discussed in clear, easy-to-follow terms, and important concepts in electrical safety will be examined.
