Course delivery details
Live instruction is not always possible due to space, travel, or health and safety constraints. In such circumstances, virtual motor control circuit training delivers all the concepts and processes taught in live classrooms. Employees receive face-to-face live virtual training from instructors with years of teaching and practical experience. Virtual classroom interaction, training exercises, and group discussions support instructor-delivered knowledge. At the same time, pop quizzes gauge each concept's understanding before moving on to the next portion of the class.
The cost of this Electric Motors and Motor Control Circuits training course is $1,195.
Upon completion of this seminar, the student will receive a certification of completion.
