About this course

This Course – in the format of a Workshop – is a 1-Day Cross-Skilling Course delivered on client’s premises only.
It has been designed to train fitters* in both the theoretical and practical aspects on how to safely and competently remove and install electric motors.

(*Course participants should be both qualified in a mechanical craft and have experience in the plant and equipment of the manufacturing sector)

Training Approach and Method

The workshop will be delivered through tutorials, practical hands-on experience with motors and interactive discussion (client to set up the two motor test rigs as they need to operate at 380V 3 phase).

Course Objectives

• To demonstrate to participants safe and effective methods to both disconnect and re-connect a motor. 2 No. 380Volt test rigs will be required with a contactor and overload start arrangement and motor leads to terminals where various final connection cables (eg, SWA, SILFLEX, OLFLEX) are to be terminated to the motor.
• Participants are to then practice the safe and effective way of motor connection and test-running, including reversal of rotation.
