About this event
This course is a skill-building course that provides you with a basic understanding of AC and DC motor and drive concepts and terminology. At the completion of this course, you will have the necessary fundamental knowledge and skills required to attend other Rockwell Automation AC and DC drives courses.

During class, you will gain the hands-on skills required to build a miniature DC motor and investigate how a variable-speed drive controls the speed and direction of an attached motor. You will also become familiar with the drive’s Human Interface Module (HIM), which allows programmers, maintainers, and troubleshooters access to information stored within the drive.

Please register before April 11th, 2023.
To successfully complete this course, the following prerequisites are required: - Working knowledge of electricity, and knowledge of electrical and industrial safety (including PPE requirements and safe practices)
