Online Course Descriptions
BUILDING AUTOMATION - 1
The Building Automation: Control Devices and Applications course focuses on the devices that monitor and control building systems, such as the HVAC, lighting, and security systems. This course covers the operation, signaling, and functions of the common sensors, actuators, and other control devices used in building automation systems for commercial buildings.
BUILDING AUTOMATION - 2
The Building Automation: System Integration with Open Protocols course introduces the concepts of intelligent devices, automated control, and network communication utilizing open protocols. The two primary protocols for wired networks, LonWorks and BACnet, are described in detail. Prerequisite: Building Automation-1
CONDUIT BENDING & FABRICATION
The Conduit Bending and Fabrication course provides a comprehensive overview of conduit bending and fabrication procedures and methods. Topics include hand bending tools, conduit layout, kicks, offsets, saddles, advanced bending techniques, mechanical & electrical benders, hydraulic benders, threading, conduit types, and underground conduit installations.
ELECTRICAL SAFETY SIMULATOR: LOW VOLTAGE (ESS-LV)
Designed by Etcetera Edutainment (EE) and enhanced by the NJATC, the simulator is designed to teach the core electrical safety concepts of NFPA 70E 2009. The Electrical Safety Sim leverages the power of game-based learning to engage learners in the material, motivating them to complete a series of lessons followed by task-based scenarios that challenge the learner to demonstrate their mastery of the content in a real-world context.
ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS 2011
The Electrical Systems Based on the 2011 NEC course includes an overview of the NEC, wiring methods and materials, conductors and overcurrent protective devices, branch circuits and feeders, grounding, transformers, services, special locations, and calculations. The course also includes procedures covering all aspects of applying the Code when designing electrical systems.
The Motors course begins with a thorough discussion of magnets, magnetism, and electromagnetism, and how they apply to motor operation. The course includes the latest information on the operation of many types of motors, reading and understanding motor nameplates, braking and starting, adjustable-speed drives, bearings, drive systems & clutches, and motor alignment.
PHOTOVOLTAIC SYSTEMS, 3rd ed.
The Photovoltaic Systems course is a guide to design, installation, and evaluation of residential and commercial photovoltaic (PV) systems. This course covers the principles of PV and how to effectively incorporate PV systems into stand-alone or interconnected electrical systems.
TEST & MEASUREMENT ACADEMY
The Milwaukee Test and Measurement Academy is a first of its kind game style set of learning modules. These learning modules provide a “Virtual Hands-On” training environment. This Academy allows the learner to interact in a series of scenarios in a first-person environment. The scenario-based work orders present the learner with a problem to resolve. Through the resolution of these problems, the learner will gain a greater understanding of the instruments used in test and measurements and a finer understanding of electrical installations.
The Test Instruments course begins by introducing safety requirements for using test instruments. The course proceeds into the specific applications for industry standard test instruments. An overview of measurement principles and test instrument procedures are covered along with an explanation of personal protective equipment as specified in NFPA 70E.
TRANSFORMER PRINCIPLES & APPLICATIONS
The Transformer: Principles and Applications course provides a comprehensive overview of transformer operation, maintenance, installation, and troubleshooting. Additional topics include effects of harmonics, power quality using reactors and transformers, autotransformers, buck-boost transformers, and other special transformers.
