Power Systems Maintenance Training

Beginning with pre-technical courses in mathematics, measurements, and safety, the Power Systems Maintenance Training program curriculum builds to give trainees a solid foundation in mechanical maintenance principles and applications, and the operations of the machinery and equipment used in power transmission systems.

Print based, the curriculum is valuable as an apprentice program or as one of your organization's skills training programs. If you're devising a cross-training program for employees, be sure to include an Electrical Maintenance Skills curriculum. Many companies combine this courseware with the Fluid Power Systems Technician curriculum to give employees complete skills training in mechanical maintenance.

Those who complete this curriculum can be expected to:

  • Locate, identify, and interpret legends, linetypes, parts symbols, and types of drawings used in reading mechanical shop prints.
  • Identify, describe, remove, replace, install, and maintain common types of bearings and seals.
  • Match lubrication methods and materials to their applications and identify their implementation and maintenance requirements.
  • Explain the common types, components, operating principles, and maintenance procedures for belt drive systems, chain drive systems, clutches, shafts, gears, and electric and hydraulic servo motors.
  • Analyze, diagnose, and correct sources of vibration in power transmission machinery.
