Typical Course Example

Investment in state of the art machinery and control systems should always be backed up training for the people operating and maintaining those machines.

Drives and Automation can provide on-site product training on both drive products and system solutions; including on-site operator/maintenance training to help protect your investment and ensure maximum production.

We can tailor training courses to suit your engineers requirements from basic drive first principles to bespoke control systems.

Class sizes are generally limited to 5 or 6 people per session.  Not only do people learn more in small classes, they also learn faster. And this means the attendees progress through the course material quicker. Their learning is further enhanced by the confidence they develop to share their opinions and ask and answer questions, which also benefits the rest of the group.  Learning is further enhanced when trainer and attendees can interact spontaneously.
