SEW-Eurodrive  has released an updated 2011 calendar for its nation-wide motor and drive technology training program. The program is known as DriveAcademy and it is based on the training syllabus that SEW-Eurodrive’s engineers use.

DriveAcademy provides end-users and system integrators with a comprehensive set of skills required to get the most out of motor and drive technologies and applications.

DriveAcademy training courses cover a wide range of topics, including:

  • Project planning (covering drive application)
  • Maintenance
  • Condition monitoring
  • Selection and usage
  • Decentralised systems
Product-specific classes are also offered. These offer trainees insights into the implementation and operation of some of SEW-Eurodrive’s most popular technologies. For example, the company’s MOVIDRIVE ‘B’ application inverter, MOVI-PLC PLC/motion controller and the MOVITRAC frequency inverter families are covered by courses.

Run by site-experienced training staff, DriveAcademy courses are conducted at SEW-Eurodrive’s Service Competence Centres. These are located in Brisbane, Perth, Melbourne, Sydney, and Adelaide.

The combination of theory and hands-on practical segments adds to the learning experience at SEW’s DriveAcademy. Standard courses are offered in small class sizes to ensure trainees receive a high level of personal attention.

The 2011 schedule begins with training on the company’s MOVITRAC ‘B’ series of frequency inverters in late February. This will be followed by a decentralised drives course a week later and many more in the subsequent months.
