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.
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.
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 realtime during the four live teleconferencing sessions, as well as in the time between sessions.
About the Seminar
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.
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.
