SEW-EURODRIVE has launched the 2015 calendar for its nationwide motor and drive training program, DriveACADEMY.

Based on the same in-depth technical training syllabus used to educate SEW’s own engineers, DriveACADEMY provides end-users and system integrators with a comprehensive set of skills to get the most out of motor and drive technologies and applications.

Michael Stranieri, SEW-EURODRIVE’S Training Manager says the DriveACADEMY training program raises the level of expertise among motor and drive users.

“By encouraging open discussion and the sharing of ideas, even the most experienced participants can learn a lot from these courses,” he says.

Each course focuses on the application of SEW-EURODRIVE’S technology from both an in-depth engineering and maintenance perspective.

“The combination of theory and hands-on practical segments used in each course equips attendees with specific knowledge related to SEW’s diverse range of products, meaning they are better able to utilise this functionality in their own work place,” said Mr Stranieri.

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

“The participants in 2014 ranged from large organisations to smaller boutique companies, Mr Stranieri said. “But one thing seemed clear, the organisations that took part understood that the knowledge DriveACADEMY provided helped their staff improve their systems.”

The schedule begins with training on the company’s MOVITRAC B frequency inverter early next month, followed by a course on the MOVIDRIVE B a few days later, and many more in the subsequent months.
