Prerequisite: Knowledge of industrial machine controls
This class will provide general background theory, applications information and programming practice for
mechanics, technicians and engineers who specify or maintain PLC-based systems.
Prerequisite: Basic Allen-Bradley PLCs (ELEC-6078) or equivalent
In this training, participants will receive an introduction to the “Logix” family of Allen-Bradley
Controllers. Topics include an overview of Logix family hardware, an introduction to the RS5000
software, basic ladder logic programming, time, counter, math, compare, tags, organizing projects,
uploading/downloading, online editing, and more.
This course studies the national electrical code and helps to prepare apprentices for the exam that leads
This course has been approved for 30 code hours by the Nebraska State Electrical Board.
This class covers electrical fundamentals from a troubleshooting perspective. Participants will learn
what to expect in operational series, parallel and combination circuits through measuring voltage,
resistance and current flow with digital multimeters. Topics include electrical terminology, Ohm’s Law,
schematic reading, components, wiring, and safe work practices.
To help the participants develop and retain skills, 50 percent of the time is hands-on lab time using
custom training consoles.
Prerequisite: Electrical Fundamentals (ELEC-6075) and Motor Controls & Relay Logic (ELEC-6076) or
In this class, participants will use training equipment with industry-standard devices to improve their
electrical troubleshooting skills. Course includes proven tips and techniques for experts and beginners.
This course is designed to increase skill levels for engineers, technicians, sales representatives, and
anyone involved with manufacturing, process controls, energy generation or automation. Training includes
lecture, reference materials and hands-on usage of actual devices such as photo-electric, inductive,
capacitive, and temperature sensors. Interface to PLCs and control techniques will be covered using
simulation trainer consoles. Such sensors are keys to green building automation.
Prerequisite: Electrical Fundamentals (ELEC‑6075) or equivalent
Three-phase motors, motor starters, wiring, relays, timers, schematics, wiring diagrams, industrial symbology, relay logic, and timer circuits will be covered using discussion and hands-on training equipment.
Code topics include wiring, protection, equipment, special occupancies, code changes, and more. This
12-hour seminar for licensed electricians meets the Nebraska State Electrical Act’s 12 contact hours of
continuing education requirement.
VFDs are increasingly used in electric motor speed control applications. This course gives maintenance
technicians, specifiers and supervisors insights to VFD theory and operation, installation
considerations, problem solving in existing systems, and familiarity with typical setup parameters.
Approximately 50 percent of the course will be hands-on with learners making wiring connections and
