Today, ESA training Seminars have been attended by thousands of persons from more than 700 different companies, government agencies and organizations worldwide. Seminar offerings range in length from one-half to four-days. ESA has developed numerous custom seminars designed with a client to meet its specific requirements and if this is of interest, ESA will be able to accommodate any needs. If you are interested in having an In-House Training Seminar, complete the quick contact form referenced below on this page for more information and to request a date.
Course outlines and training learning objectives for the most popular seminars are available for DOWNLOAD.
ESA works with AMETEK Solidstate Controls, to present public seminars on their behalf. See the schedule at the end of this page. The seminars taught for AMETEK at its training facility in Houston, TX includes hands-on exercises where the proper method for assembling intercell connections, and determining and measuring connection resistance on demonstration cells and a typical annual inspection on one or more of the seven batteries installed at the training facility are included as part of the training. These exercises are performed in two battery lab areas of the training facility.
Upon successful completion of any ESA or AMETEK sponsored seminar, each participant will receive a certificate of completion and will be awarded 0.7 CEUs per day (e.g., 1.4 CEUs for a two-day seminar). More and more, licensing authorities are requiring evidence of completion of Continuing Education before renewal of an individual’s professional engineer license, electrician license or other license or certification, is granted. Depending upon the state or province, participants that successfully complete a seminar may be able to satisfy all or a portion of those requirements.
Because it is difficult to transport batteries and even more difficult to demonstrate the many types of battery problems that one can encounter, it is usually not practical to have a true hands-on course. However, it is possible to create real-life situations and place the participants in teams that will analyze and evaluate the workshop problem presented. This is the basis for the Stationary Battery Workshop consisting of 45 case studies in the areas of selection, sizing, installation design, installation, maintenance and testing. Each case study describes an actual event that has occurred in the field. The case studies are self-contained and include facts and data related to the issue to be addressed. Some case studies include color photocopies of the battery being examined. Those solving the case study are challenged to develop a solution and to provide a recommended course of action to the “owner.”
