Course Overview:
Medium voltage ASDs (MV Adjustable Speed Drives) and motors are widely applied to plant rotating machinery like compressors, pumps, fans, extruders, mills, kilns, etc., ranging from a few horsepower (HP) to tens of thousands of horsepower. Safe, reliable and successful application of these ASDs and motors require a system level approach.
The TMEIC Medium Voltage Systems School is an information-packed one-day series of practical sessions covering the selection, specification, and application of industrial MV equipment. Project engineers, equipment specifiers and technical stake holders will learn key application concepts for MV large motors, adjustable speed AC drives, and related MV power systems and distribution equipment that support the motor and drive installation. Instructors are TMEIC application engineers and industry experts with many years’ experience in MV drives, motors and integrated system applications in various industries.
The focus for the course will be application topics that can be used right away to specify, evaluate, procure and install a successful MV motor and drive system. The dimensions of the course will be medium voltage (>2.3kV) and motor power ranging from 500 HP thru 100,000 HP. In addition to classroom presentations, attendees are encouraged to bring their own real-world application issues for group discussion.
Five (5) Professional Development Hours [PDH] will be documented for those interested in applying their participation to maintaining their professional accreditation.

Keith Stewart from Montgomery County Environmental Services is putting together an OSHA 8-hour Competent Person Class which is taught by Patricia Falls of Firstline Safety Management, Inc.  The class focuses on the OSHA Excavation Standard that is found in 29 CFR 1926, Subpart P.  The day is split into five sections and they are 1) Definitions and Soil Classification, 2) General Requirement, 3) Sloping, 4) Timber and Aluminum Hydraulic Shoring, and 5) Trench Boxes.  At the end of the instruction, the attendees will be certified as an OSHA Competent Person and will receive a card stating such.  Also, if the attendees need OEPA contact hours, this course has been preapproved for them.
The full day of instruction includes all materials, drinks and a catered lunch and the price is $85/person.
They are looking at offering three or four classes the week of April 17th which allows for agencies and companies to be able to send different people different days and still have coverage at their organizations.  They are looking for about 40-50 more people for the training, so they are opening it up to contractors, other agencies, etc.
