It is always important to get on-job training, when it'savailable. It is also crucial for overall plant productivity to have continuous training of your electricians, PLC technicians, or even your engineering and project management staff. That is why it is a very good notion to upgrade your academic background that oninsides with the inovative technologies, devices, and components. It is greatly important, if you can receive professional guidance on different topics on everehing related to reduction of downtime and learn learn within a short period of time. On-job training is not necessarily the best solution these days, as it's a very slow process compare to the progress of ever-changing technologies, processes, as well as new automation hardware and software. A crash courses that are offered by the Downtime Reduction School will make a noticeable difference to the knowledge level of the present maintenance crew and to a new hire.

What Our Students Say
Our main problems has always been to make sure that our electricians can quickly understand a new machinery or process just to be ready to fix them. You have shown us the most appropriate way to teach our electricians and technicians how to convert PLC logic into Boolean, or Gate logic, and use it. We have used gate logic you provided just to test our maintenance crew comprehension. It was a remarkable result. They started navigating PLC control logic within half of an hour. You should see their happy faces! Special thanks for your training on PID loop controllers. Thank you very much for your help and guidance.John Ebron Superintendent, Inco Ltd, Sudbury, Ontario Canada
Your solution was very effective. From now on any troubleshooting goes really fast. Faults and alarms displayed on a touch screen of the operator terminal can show any and all problems. The operator is in a position to make an educated guess what was the problem cause or even to fix it himself without calling an electrician. Special thanks for a unique solution you implemented. That is restoring the last state of our 8-channel ultra-violet disinfection wastewater treatment plant after power interrupt or lightning occur. It still works like a charm! The most impressive was a crash course on PLC programming and troubleshooting you were conducting for 4 days. The simplicity of material you presented was great! Thank you.Chris White Wasterwater Treatment, Plant supervisor, San Bernardino, CA
I had a really positive experience to deeper understand the complexity of the control system you have designed and built. It was amazing to see how your HTML screens are running from the Internet browser allowing us to produce leading, lagging, and active electric power from our wind farm and to transmit that power to the 110 KV power grid. An alarm screen you developed shows problems which have never been displayed before. Now we can see voltage sagging, current fluctuation, lightning strike, and even power grid power quality in terms of reactive. leading and lagging, I really enjoyed your training and support. Thank you very much.Greg Rogers Power Engineer, Indian Mesa, Texas
I couldn't believe that technical problem solving and inventing is not an occasional inspiration but rather a science. You have open a Pandora box to all 50 engineers you were training in finding the best solutions to hundreds of technical situation. The methodology of TRIZ, that is the Theory of Resolving Inventive Solutions, from now on becomes a 'rule of engagement' to our engineering departments, including mechanical, electrical, robotics, as well as to process control and instrumentation department. Now, we started to understand that only inventive solutions can change the world! Thank you very much for your insights.Allen Cordish Engineering Coordinator, Raytheon, Birmingham, AL
