Develop and maintain electrical troubleshooting skills that industry demands
Our world-class troubleshooting skills training software system
It’s a common belief that if you understand how something works, you can fix it. However, research says it’s not that simple. Even though knowing how the equipment works is important, there are some elements that also need to be included in the training.
The following 3 elements are what we focus on in the Troubleshooting Skills Training System™:
A systematic approach to circuit diagnostics and techniques
A realistic environment in which to apply the approach and develop skills
Plenty of practice with feedback using simulated systems
Gather information, use your senses and list observations.
Define Problem Area
Eliminate areas of the circuit that are working properly.
Identify Possible Causes
Include every component in the problem area when identifying all possible causes of the malfunction.
Determine Most Probable Cause
Check fuses, mechanical components, windings and coils, connections and wiring.
Test and Repair
Test your diagnosis, repair the fault and double check to ensure that the repair was successful.
There is no substitute for learning experiences that occur live and first hand, especially when learning high-risk electrical processes
With over 240 fault simulations in our software that behave like real circuits, it’s easy to get the practice and feedback necessary to develop tactical and effective problem-solving skills.
Walk through the circuits and faults from the perspective of an expert troubleshooter. Use the guided content as a reminder on how to use the tools, how to use the systematic approach in operation, and how to diagnose and repair the fault.
Apply Simutech’s 5-step systematic approach and diagnose faults in a safe environment. The realistic simulations provide instant feedback on actions to aid in the learning process. To prepare for the tests, practice faults are not guided or evaluated.
Skill testing faults
Test your knowledge and apply troubleshooting skills to basic, intermediate and advanced faults. Scores reflect your safety, proficiency and level of accuracy and completion time. Feedback and evaluations are provided for each fault attempt.
Extra faults are made available upon successful completion of the skill test faults. They are intended to provide the additional practice required to perfect and maintain your industrial electrical troubleshooting skills.
What’s included in the Troubleshooting Skills Training System™
Our complete training system includes 6 interactive modules with software simulations ranging from basic electrical circuits to systems with PLC controls. With numerous realistic simulations and over 240 fault-finding challenges, it’s easy to learn and maintain a proven troubleshooting process you can use time and time again.
Practice troubleshooting a wide range of problems including opens, shorts, overloads, single-phasing and more! Our course manager makes it painless to track you or your staff’s progress along the way to identify areas in need of improvement.
