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.
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.
