NEW THIS CYCLE


LED Lighting & Controls (4 hrs.) and The Energy Codes (4 hrs.) – given as one 8 hr. course

INTRODUCTION TO LED - What is LED lighting and how does it work. Understanding CCT and CRI, review the current standards for LED lighting. How to read a product specification

 

CHOOSING THE RIGHT LUMINAIRE - Retrofit installations, lamp replacement vs. new luminaire, application based design

 INTRODUCTION TO LIGHTING CONTROL / LIGHTING CONTROL FOR ENERGY CODES - Dimming types, relays & dimmers, emergency lighting, occupancy sensor types, daylight sensors, plug load control, proper zoning, programming scenes, networking, system integration and, the right system for the customer and code

 THE ENERGY CODES - This seminar will cover an overview of the 2015 International Energy Conservation Codes, Residential, Commercial and ANSI/ASHRAE/IES Standard 90.1-2013 as adopted by New Jersey. These codes while not well understood is a growing responsibility of the Electrical Contractor. This seminar will help explain the contractor’s role in meeting energy code requirements from pools to lighting.

 National Electrical Code Calculations (8 hrs.)

This course is designed to show the basic requirements for a safe and reliable electrical system. The focus is on the design and installations of conductions, conduits, feeders, services, cable tray /box fill, appliance, motors, air conditioning equipment, grounding, bonding, cabinets, meter enclosures, branch circuits, overcurrent protection devices for a National Electrical Code complying system. Selecting expansion fittings for PVC/RTRC conduits with tables 352.44 and 355.44.

 

Spaces About Elect. Equip (NEC 110.26) & equip for general use (NEC Chapter 4) - 8 hrs.  110.26 spaces about electric equipment requirements for working space and Dedicated Equipment Space. What are these two requirements about?  What are the differences? How do they relate to safety and code compliance installations? Although correcting violations in these areas can be extremely costly, most electricians do not have a clear understanding of these requirements and these are one of the rare situations where violations to the electrician’s installation can be caused by another trade!!


NEC CHAPTER 4 - Equipment for General Use. We all focus on getting the wiring properly from the supply to the destination, but what about the devices and equipment we are supplying with the power? What about the switches, receptacles, light fixtures and appliances, etc… after the Chapter 3 wiring methods? This overview from flexible cord and cables to appliances will help electricians see code requirements after the wiring is installed.   

 

Applying Lean Thinking to Your Business (4 hrs.) & Medium Voltage Systems (4 hrs.) – given as one 8 hr. course

LEAN THINKING: Ever feel like you’re too busy mopping the floor to turn off the faucet?  Learn how concepts from Lean Thinking (also known as the Toyota Production System) can help you simplify processes and improve results.  Lean focus on principles such as reducing waste, improving customer satisfaction, and increasing profits.  In this class we’ll discover tools for adding value to processes, identifying & eliminating waste, tools for reducing inventory costs and rework, and encouraging employees to use Lean Thinking as well. (This course pairs well with our concepts and tools in the Business Strategies, Techniques, and Practices course.)

MEDIUM VOLTAGE SYSTEM: This course will discuss the types of Medium Voltage equipment, cabling and specific devices that protect electrical systems. The course begins with the two types of medium voltage switchgear and their ratings.  The discussion continues with the selection of overcurrent protective devices.  Various cable insulation types and terminations will also be covered in detail.

TES WILL CONTINUE TO OFFER:
