Take a look at Electricity Forum’s new 2014 training courses
BY PHILL FELTHAM
The Electricity Forum Training Institute (EFTI) has had a successful fall/winter season. Since September 2013, more than 1,000 electrical engineers, electricians, and technical staff have attended our courses and upgraded their skills in a variety of areas including motors and drives, power transformers, and arc flash/electrical safety in the
workplace. EFTI has recently announced its spring season lineup. Two new courses of interest are the Electrical Maintenance Workshop on the CSA Z463 standard and the Industrial Lighting Forum.
ELECTRICAL MAINTENANCE WORKSHOP
The Canadian Standards Association’s new CSA Z463 standard for maintenance of workplace electrical systems, came into effect in late 2013, and our one-day comprehensive workshop provides invaluable information to anyone wanting a better understanding of the changes and the role of the CSA Z463 electrical maintenance standard. This workshop emphasizes the importance of planning, programming, and implementing electrical maintenance practices, and covers safety considerations involved in electrical maintenance procedures for all the components of any electrical system.
CSA Z463 ELECTRICAL MAINTENANCE WORKSHOP
May 9, 2014 – Mississauga, ON
May 13, 2014 – Edmonton, AB
May 16, 2014 – Richmond, BC
INDUSTRIAL LIGHTING FORUM
The Industrial Lighting Forum is designed to provide insight and practical hands-on information on how to choose and maintain an industrial lighting system. This forum will help determine the quantity and quality of illumination, and will outline IES standard recommendations, and local codes.
Some of our speakers are members of the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America (IES), a recognized learned society that represents lighting professionals across the continent. As a collective, our speakers at the Industrial Lighting Forum will show delegates how to define and list the basics to lighting and emerging technologies such as lighting controls and solid-state lighting. In addition, there will be a strong focus on appropriate designs for lighting systems (technologies, maintenance, and efficiency, among others).
Last and certainly not least, several lighting options such as light-emitting diodes (LEDs) and fluorescents will be covered.
