Motors and Drives Training
Reducing energy costs while improving motor driven systems can be simple with improved motor management practices. Our educational workshops and training classes are tailored to your needs, combining classroom instruction and hands-on activities. Best of all, we bring our world-class training directly to you, or we can host in our state-of-the-art training facility. Professional development hours (PDH) and Continuing Educations Units (CEU) are available with our Motor and Drive classes.

Our workshops are tailored for a variety of audiences interested in achieving energy savings and reliability improvements with motor driven systems. Our students include motor end users, trade associations, utility account representatives, motor service centers, government contractors, professional engineers, and others with an interest in motors and drives.

Motor Management Survey Training
Motor Management and Survey trainings can be delivered directly to industrial clients or through other groups with similar interests (utilities, trade assocaiations, etc). These unique trainings combine classroom instruction and hands-on activities, from going into the plant/facility and recording motor nameplate information to making repair/replace decisions. The training also includes a demonstration on fan law, providing hands-on VFD savings. Our sessions present industrial and commercial clients with all of the tools they need to begin a motor management program by surveying their motors correctly and consistently.

Our training events are offered coast to coast and can be customized to specific client needs.Here's what some of our participants had to say about our training program:
"The biggest take away our members got from the class was that the initial cost of a motor is a very small part of the total life time cost to operate and that choosing the right motor should be based not only on operational specification, but also on efficiency,” said Craig Greenstein, Manager, Operations, Merck& Co. “We are planning to data mine our motor inventory based on Advanced Energy's spread sheet and use the information to help us decide if we should replace a non-premium type motor with premium type. The information will also help us fiscally determine whether a failed motor should be repaired or replaced. Advanced Energy’s training is helping us manage our motor inventory and improve the reliability of our facility.”

“Based on what we learned in Advanced Energy’s training, we are going to move forward with having our site energy technician survey our motors,” said Avi Lessner, Site Energy Champion, DuPont Fayetteville Works. “From there we will be able to implement a program here in Fayetteville, NC. The information gained from Advanced Energy’s training will certainly aid in managing and making decisions about the 1,300 to 1,500 motors we have on site.
