Program Management (Advanced)

The Program Management track is a certification track for professionals who are responsible for corporate, regional, or multi-site equipment reliability.

Participants in this advanced management track are generally responsible for standard fleet maintenance practices, loss management, and the management of corporate equipment assets and risk. They are often leaders who are charged with achieving their organization’s strategic objectives.

This track begins with an expanded look at the essentials of transformer management and maintenance, then management sessions include the following topics which are covered in depth, providing transformer management professionals with the expertise they need to excel in their field:

  • Purchasing and specifications
  • Transporting, assembly, and start-up
  • Field and shop repair
  • Risk assessment and asset management
  • Substation and system equipment
  • Concepts in transformer design
  • Transformer oil, oil testing, and diagnostics
  • Advanced field electrical testing

Courses in the program management track

Transformer Management Essentials—Applied Maintenance

 This course provides a foundational understanding of the internal and external elements of the transformer, the essentials of transformer operation and maintenance implementation and related industry standards.  It covers the chemical, mechanical and electrical components of the transformer, the purpose and operating characteristics of these components, the significant requirements and methods for maintenance, and the major testing involved in maintenance. When this course is taken at our Tallmadge facility, participants experience lab and equipment tours, a rewind facility tour, case studies, break-out groups, expert panel discussion, practical exercises, and interactive activities.

Advanced Transformer Maintenance & Planning

This course builds on the foundational concepts taught in the Transformer Management Essentials Applied Maintenance (and Transformer Management Essentials Course). Students will dive deeper into the concepts of reactive, predictive, and preventative maintenance of transformers and be able to develop a cost-effective testing and maintenance plan to prolong the reliable life of their transformers.

This course will get the student familiar with the substation and system equipment, as well as additional understanding of transformer design and construction. This course provides the advanced knowledge and develops the skills to identify and analyze / interpret chemical test results, identify maintenance recommendations based on chemical and electrical tests, manage service specifications, and make critical maintenance / planning decisions. We further build and work on the application of this advanced education through practical exercise, interactive activities, etc. thus increasing the learning retention, applicability of concepts and overall experience.
