Scaffolding Awareness is designed to provide basic knowledge of the different types of scaffolds and guidelines for their use, to assist participants in a better understanding of the relevant regulations and risks associated when working on or near scaffold systems. The course also provides an understanding of common scaffold terminology and scaffold components. Various types of scaffolding systems are covered including frame, tube and clamp and modular systems scaffolds.
The Basic Rigging course provides trainees with accurate, easy to understand instruction on Wire Rope, Slings and Rigging Hardware. Through narrated animations trainees are introduced to a wide range of rigging components and associated terminology, guidelines for their use, including Safety Factors and Working Load Limit (WLL) calculations. 3D models of components and tools provide trainees with a valuable way to clearly visualize rigging components and their use.
Workers must also be familiar with formulas that are used to calculate the volume and weight of different types of structural materials such as wood, concrete, steel plate, pipes, rings, stands and tanks.
Through narrated animations trainees are introduced to the basics of calculating area, perimeter circumference and calculate the area of geometric shapes. The lesson proceeds to introduce the concept of volume from area and calculate the weight of objects by volume. The lesson concludes with training on how to calculate the weight of common construction materials. 3D models of components are used to assist in visualizing these concepts.
The interactive 3D models and simulations in this course, demonstrate the procedures for gauge manifold installation and removal, standing pressure test, evacuation and holding charge, charging and recovery, that are used when installing or servicing HVACR equipment.
First, you will be guided through each procedure and directed to perform specific tasks correctly, as the procedure progresses. After working through each procedure with assistance, you will have the opportunity to practice the procedure on your own.
This course provides the necessary basic level of training through narrated 3D animations and introduces then to basic hydraulic theory, actuators, motors, pumps controls and hydraulic circuits. Based on a typical hydraulic circuit, the lesson explains fundamentals of hydraulic theory as it applies to components in a typical hydraulic circuit. 3D models are used extensively to explicitly demonstrate the theory of operation.
There are two main types of internal combustion engines, spark and combustion ignition systems. These are commonly known as gas and diesel engines. Both types can be configured as two or four stroke engines.
This course explains the differences between spark and combustion engines and details how the two and four stroke versions of these engines work for each ignition type. 3D models and animations are used extensively with cutaway views showing components and theory of operation for two or four stroke engines. In addition to engine operation, many supporting systems such as turbo chargers and fuel injection systems are also described.
AC machines are motors that convert AC electric energy to mechanical energy and generators that convert mechanical energy to AC electric energy. There are two major classes of AC machines, synchronous and induction. Various methods are used to excite field windings. Each method changes the operational characteristics and application for each machine. AC motors and generators are widely used in industry today and having a basic understanding of each type in context with their specific application is important for installation and maintenance.
This course explains the underlying electrical theory, equipment components and how it works for common types of AC motors/generators. Detailed 3D models are used with animations to assist in visualizing the concepts.
DC machines are motors that convert DC electric energy to mechanical energy and generators that convert mechanical energy to DC electric energy. DC machines were first developed in the early 19th century prior to the use of alternating current (AC). These machines are used still used in many industrial applications today, however learning the theory of operation is the first step prior to studying more complex AC machines.
This course explains the underlying electrical theory, equipment components and how it works for common types of DC motors/generators. The course starts with the theory of magnetism and builds upon this to demonstrate how DC generators and motors work. Detailed 3D models are used with animations to assist in visualizing the concepts.
Technicians today require a basic understanding of electrical theory in order to install and troubleshoot various types of commercial and industrial equipment. Fundamental to this knowledge is a sound understanding of basic electricity and how it relates to circuits.
This course explains the underlying theory of electron flow and electricity in terms of voltage, current and resistance. Using equations such as Ohms law and Kirchhoff’s law, basic electrical circuits are discussed, and theory of operation explained. Detailed 3D models with animations are used to assist in visualizing the concepts.
