• New maintenance personnel in Facility Maintenance who would like to gain knowledge and skills in Electrical and Plumbing Maintenance
  • Maintenance supervisors and maintenance office staff who would like a better understanding of these trades
  • Other trades people needing cross-training or who are new to building maintenance
  • Experienced maintenance techs wanting to refresh or expand their skills

We recently redesigned and substantially improved our training mock-ups to give workshop participants a more realistic training experience.  Many students are commenting about how easy it is to learn and work on these newer life-size mock-ups.  This redesigned mock-up also allows the instructor to present much more realistic scenarios, very similar to what participants will encounter in the field.  

This workshop is Part 2 in a four-part series on Electrical & Plumbing Maintenance.  Parts 1 & 2 were designed to be taken back-to-back, and most of our workshop participants have found it beneficial to attend both of them during the same week of training.  Because Part 2 is a continuation of more complex wiring scenarios from Part 1, participants who do not have a basic understanding of electrical principles are urged to attend Part 1 in this series before attending Part 2.

During Part 2, workshop participants will be taken to a higher level of understanding and maintenance regarding the electrical and plumbing aspects at their facility. Everyone will have “hands-on” opportunities to perform many of the agenda topics, all done in a non-threatening way under the supervision of our skilled and experienced workshop leader.

Each workshop participant will use a detailed workbook throughout the training that explains how to perform the maintenance and repair work included in the workshop.  These will be theirs to keep and use as reference on the job at their facilities. TSA certificates will be presented to everyone who attends this workshop.

Due to the personalized and hands-on nature of this workshop we must limit attendance, so please pre-register early to ensure your spot at this popular training session.
