Motor Maintenance and Testing (MMT)

Motor Maintenance and Testing

COURSE OVERVIEW

Because motors are so common and critical in industrial facilities, this hands-on course demonstrates the ability to quickly recognize, diagnose and remedy an evolving motor problem to help prevent catastrophic failures. When troubleshooting motors, technicians should perform electrical tests on insulation before mechanical inspections, because of the lower time investment. This course provides information to enable class participants to establish effective motor maintenance programs. This will increase productivity, reduce unnecessary downtime, maximize electrical motor efficiency and save money.
