SEW-Eurodrive’s DriveAcademy is back in 2012

SEW-Eurodrive, has released an updated 2012 calendar for its nation-wide motor and drive technology training program, DriveAcademy.

Based on the same technical training syllabus used to educate SEW-Eurodrive’s own engineers, DriveAcademy provides end-users and system integrators with skills required to get the most out of motor and drive technologies and applications.

Launched in 2010, DriveAcademy training courses cover project planning, drive application, selection and usage, decentralised systems, maintenance and condition monitoring.

Product specific classes are also offered, providing insight into the implementation and operation of some of SEW-Eurodrive’s technologies – such as MOVIDRIVE ‘B’ application inverter, MOVI-PLC/motion controller and the MOVITRAC frequency inverter families.

All courses are offered for a variety of end-users, including drive engineers, service application engineers, operations managers and maintenance technicians.

According to SEW-Eurodrive training manager, Michael Stranieri, the DriveAcademy training courses undertaken in the last two years have provided attendees with a useful mix of theoretical and practical tuition.

“From gearbox maintenance and repair to training on our electronics products, it seems that everyone who had undertaken these courses took away valuable information to use on an ongoing basis in their workplace”.

In 2012, customers can expect improvements to the training schedule. “Courses will be run more frequently across each state, making it easier for everyone to attend,” said Stranieri.

“We will also be introducing a new training course into the schedule, the MOVIDRIVE LTE B frequency inverter. This product has such a vast array of functions, that many users don’t realise they are only utilising a small amount of its capabilities,” he added.

Each DriveAcademy training course is run by technical site-experienced staff, and conducted at SEW-Eurodrive’s Service Competence Centres located in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide.

Details are available on SEW-Eurodrive’s customer website.
