PROTEC TRAINING SERVICES
NETA CTDs and NICET CPDs
Protec's Learning Management System (LMS) contains 70+ possible NETA CTDs and NICET CPDs! You can earn credits via self-paced eLearning through an annual subscription. All NETA-level technicians must renew their certification with continuing education. A NETA 2 will need 24 CTDs and a NETA 3 or 4 will need 48 CTDs. We can help you achieve your renewal, contact us for more information and pricing for access to our LMS. If you are an individual looking for credit, or if you are a manager looking to help your techs maintain their status (or even level up!), we can help!
Understanding that companies spend a great deal of resources, time and money on training, our goal is to develop and deliver relevant educational offerings that are practical and flexible. Many of our clients come from the services industry and we understand the challenges that are placed on maintaining a balance between field utilization/demand, resources, and conventional classroom training.
Fortunately, computers, mobile devices and the internet have revolutionized the way we do things. Aside from making it easier for us to communicate, gather information and shop, they provide a convenient and effective way to learn by taking advantage of eLearning. eLearning helps individuals who may otherwise find it difficult to attend classes through a more traditional route. Online learning provides an avenue to expand knowledge, skills and career advancement while keeping up with busy schedules.
Protec's training philosophy is to take advantage of technology and roll out flexible learning opportunities. eLearning solutions include:
- Self-Study Computer-Based Training (CBT)
Electrical safety training offerings are based on OSHA and NFPA-70E requirements and guidelines as well as Canadian, OHS and CSA Z462.
Electrical safety training requirements applies to employees exposed to an electrical hazard when the risk associated with that hazard is not reduced to a safe level by the applicable electrical installation requirements. Such employees shall be trained to understand the specific hazards associated with electrical energy. They shall be trained in safety-related work practices and procedural requirements, as necessary, to provide protection from the electrical hazards associated with their respective job or task assignments.
Retraining in electrical safety-related work practices and applicable changes in industry standards such as NFPA-70E and CSA Z462 shall be performed at intervals not to exceed 3 years.
All too often personnel must jump right into electrical maintenance with no training or with minimal on-the-job training that skips the fundamentals.
Without a solid foundation on the fundamentals the result may be technicians performing tasks without understanding the reason why or the implications of changes they are making on electrical circuits or equipment. This can lead to unsafe activities and damage to electrical equipment.
At a minimum, technicians should demonstrate technical proficiency in electrical fundamentals before performing any work on electrical circuits or equipment.
Inherent in the determination of electrical equipment's serviceability is the prerequisite that individuals performing the tests can evaluate the test data and make an informed judgment on the continued serviceability, deterioration, or non-serviceability of the specific equipment.
The Electrical Maintenance Program consists of eLearning courses complete with student workbooks in the following categories:
- Circuit Breaker
- Electrical Distribution Systems
- Protective Relay
- Rotating Machines (Motors & Generators)
- Diagnostic Testing
- Partial Discharge (Online and Offline Methods)
