Arabian American Center Details Training & Development
Program Title:
Operate & Maintain Electrical Equipment in Production Facilities
14.07.2019 - 18.07.2019
$ 2750


Who Should Attend:

     This course is intended for Electrical Engineers, Electrical Supervisors and Electrical Technicians engaged in the operations, troubleshooting, maintenance and repair of Electrical Equipment and Control Systems. Because the methods and examples are dedicated for electrical equipments normally used in production facilities, trainee from oil and gas fields will benefit. Participants need no specific requirements other than good understanding of electricity and magnetism and some relevant experience

 Training Methodology
     Each participant will receive a copy of the comprehensive course notes. The presenter will outline and discuss the topics using computer displays, CD displays and Videotapes. The course is designed to have an interactive format to maximize delegate participation. Questions and answers are encouraged throughout and at the daily sessions. Needs-Based case-studies and examples will be discussed in problem solving workshop sessions. This gives participants the opportunity to discuss with other delegates and the presenter their specific problems and appropriate solutions. Only minimum note taking is encouraged to ensure maximum delegate attention during the course.

Training outcomes
    Following the attendance at this course, participants will return to their respective organizations equipped with new or refreshed skills to ensure that each power components related to the industrial substations  are tested and maintained in a fashion that ensures reduced costs and or start-up delays plus identified faults or problems are repaired and the underlying causes are identified and eliminated to reduce further failures
