This  TSA  workshop  is  designed  for:

  • Maintenance Personnel in Facility Maintenance who would like to increase their knowledge and skills in the areas of Plumbing & Electrical Maintenance

TSA has had many requests for even more “hands-on” opportunities to learn and practice important skills that are taught at our plumbing and electrical maintenance workshops. This workshop is Part 3 in a four-part series where participants are given “hands-on” experiences to gain more advanced knowledge and skills in the following areas: 


  • Water heaters
  • Pex-Pipe
  • Gas lines
  • Commercial toilets & valves
  • Mold Water Intrusion problem


  • Using meters
  • Wiring various types of 240 outlets
  • Fans
  • Running new circuits
  • Understanding various lighting issues
  • Variety of wiring exercises

Under the supervision of our skilled workshop leader, workshop participants will be taken to a higher level of understanding about maintaining the plumbing and electrical systems at their facilities.  Each 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 later as reference on the job.  TSA certificates will be presented to everyone who attends this training. 

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