Course description

Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) Systems

Available in both virtual and in-person, instructor-led formats, this two-day Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) Systems training seminar is perfect for anyone who could be at a facility when a power outage occurs - the plant electrician, maintenance technician or a supervising engineer, for example. How often do you get a chance to work with the Uninterruptible Power Supply system in your facility? Do you know what steps to take in the event of an emergency so that your facility can be kept up and running? What is your procedure if something goes wrong? What about regular testing and preventive maintenance? Backup emergency systems are essential, but only valuable if you have the people on staff trained to work with them in emergency situations. This Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) Systems seminar is designed to make sure your plant and facility personnel are ready for anything.
