EDC's dedicated ABB drive training facility in Erskine                Director Shaun Sutton at the official opening
EDC offers bespoke training courses in variable speed drives for all your site engineers.
What are the benefits of training engineers in variable speed drives?
Often all your staff need to sort minor problems or adjust a drive programme is some basic training in vsd operation & functionality. Our courses provide access to ABB trained, full-qualified variable speed drive service engineers - engineers who have experience of the most common on-site problems: and their solutions. Long-term benefits of training your staff in include:
Less down-time - staff can interpret and resolve common faults and alarms.
Fewer call-outs - Customers with Service Contracts can call and resolve issues over the phone, their understanding of vsd operation enhanced by their hands-on training using EDC vsd demo cases.
Better drive utilisation - Engineers and operators can adjust and modify vsd parameters to suit the application with a minimal amount of training, ensuring you get the very best level of operation from your vsd.
Course Location: Courses can be conducted in our spacious and bespoke training suite in Erskine, or at our clients' offices.
Course Duration: Both full and half-day training courses are available. Longer training courses can also be accommodated and accommodation provided if required.

Said David Kerr, trainer & workshop/commissioning manager: 
"We can offer courses on a full complement of Vsd’s covering the following drives:- ACS 355, ACH 550, ACS550, ACS580, ACS800 ACS880 and ACS810. Our courses are for those who want to raise their skill level or to simply find out more about the advantages of using variable speed drives. 
The courses start off with a welcome introduction to EDC and tea and coffee on arrival. This helps to settle the candidates. We all know that some people get nervous when asked to complete training, but our trainers are very experienced at engaging every level of aptitude, making the candidates feel comfortable and able to enjoy the training experience. The course then starts off with the advantages and disadvantages of drives -  covering the basic fundamentals on exactly how a VSD operates, this takes most of the morning. After lunch we move into training exercises with demo units. Use of these units provides candidates with confidence and experience in using actual ABB drives in a 'hands-on' situation. At the end there is a small set of questions and a practical test, so that the trainee can demonstrate his understanding of the day's training. Throughout the day there is an ongoing opportunity for an open forum, asking questions and group discussions. Most trainees find the day to be a very enjoyable experience in a relaxed atmosphere and leave keen to demonstrate their newly acquired knowledge of variable speed drives."
