"I extend our deepest gratitude for PII's support with our recent equipment problem. I could not have anticipated the response we would receive when I made the emergency phone call over the July 4th weekend requesting assistance. PII experts worked around the clock to help us solve a very complex equipment problem. The results were exemplary; you helped us rapidly identify the cause and implement corrective actions, avoiding a costly unplanned unit shutdown. Thanks again for a job well done."

Why is This Course Unique?
Effective electrical root cause analyses are critical to maintain a high capacity factor (or production factor) in aging facilities. PII's 3-day Electrical Equipment Failure Mode & Root Cause Analysis course is the only comprehensive course of its kind on the market. Developed over more than 15 years of PII's internal research and real-world case studies, this course teaches the root cause analysis techniques necessary to correctly diagnose electrical equipment failures. Attendees will learn the 207 possible failure modes of electrical equipment in a typical production facility.
Benefits of This Course:
This course enables attendees to diagnose electrical equipment failures with a very high success rate. Based upon the exam scores of past students, it is anticipated that attendees' root cause investigation success rate is increased from 50% to nearly 100%. Other RCA courses teach only the typical 30 failure mechanisms; PII's course will increase the student's knowledge to 207 failure modes.
