Electrical & Pneumatics

  • Our rotating course offerings include:

    * Designates upcoming class dates listed

  • 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.

    Course Offerings

    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.

    Course Offerings

    This course studies the national electrical code and helps to prepare apprentices for the exam that leads to licensing.

    This course has been approved for 30 code hours by the Nebraska State Electrical Board.

    Course Offerings

    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.

    Course Offerings

    Prerequisite: Electrical Fundamentals (ELEC-6075) and Motor Controls & Relay Logic (ELEC-6076) or equivalent

    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.

    Course Offerings

    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.

    Course Offerings

    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.

    Course Offerings

    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 programming parameters.
