PdMA Training

PdMA® Corporation offers training to assist our customers in learning how to safely operate and perform data analysis for motor circuit evaluation utilizing the MCEMAX®, MCE®, and EMAX testing equipment. The courses are designed to help you get the most from your tester.

The initial training courses are designed for both technicians and analyst to enable them to begin utilizing their tester as part of an effective motor testing program. These courses focus on how to safely operate the equipment, perform all tests, and use the Six Fault Zone approach to data analysis.

The classes may be held in Tampa (Open Enrollment) or at the customer site (On-Site).

Open Enrollment Courses in Our Tampa Facility
PdMA offers regularly scheduled Open Enrollment Introduction to MCEMAX and MCEMAX Data Analysis at our training facility in Tampa. Dates are subject to change.

Introduction to MCEMAX: PdMA Corporation’s training center in Tampa has been specifically designed to support all models of our testers. Students have the opportunity to perform every test each tester is capable of, in a safe and distraction free training lab. They will have the opportunity to test both healthy and faulted motors using our latest hardware and software. The Introduction to MCEMAX course covers all models in our tester line.

Data Analysis: The biggest benefit to coming to PdMA Corporation for Data Analysis training is that you not only receive the course instruction, but you also have an opportunity to share with other students from other facilities. Having a large group of experienced users provides a larger knowledge base and the opportunity to learn how others may have handled the challenges you are faced with today.

Many of our customers have requested additional training not necessarily related to our equipment, but to  help them build their in house motor testing program. To assist these customers we work with Richard Love Associates to host motor workshops.

For enrollment information please contact Tonya Valdez, PdMA Open Enrollment Training Administrator, valdez.t@pdma.com or 813-621-6463 ext, 126.
