Amatrol Wind Turbine Technology Learning Systems for Technical Education
Wind Turbine Technicians are in demand – with few to be found. They are uniquely skilled, handling a wide breadth of operational and maintenance issues, frequently while a hundred meters in the air. The job skills they require incorporate many traditional technical disciplines like electric motor control, wiring, rotating machines, hydraulics, mechanical drives, networks, etc., along with more specialized skills in wind turbine nacelles, hubs, and turbine generator control units.
Amatrol’s Wind Turbine Technology program prepares Wind Turbine Technicians to confidently assess and remedy the many challenges they will face on-the-job. Troubleshooting and problem solving across all the technologies required for Wind Turbine Technicians are keystones for Amatrol’s Wind Turbine Technology program. In addition to wind turbine technicians, Amatrol’s Wind Turbine Technology program is also a valuable career building block for wind turbine engineers, wind techs, and wind turbine site supervisors.
Authentic, Comprehensive, Job-Ready Skills
The program incorporates the skill development needed for job success, ranging from basic operation to complex troubleshooting. The learning topics are comprised of problemsolving activities designed to create adaptive skills for new situations such as voltage fluctuation, pressure and flow issues, etc.
The program emphasizes demonstration of skills in addition to knowledge assessment to prepare students for real work readiness. While technical skills are essential for Wind Turbine Technicians, being able to communicate effectively is also critical as technicians seek assistance, often from a distance. Amatrol’s Enterprise Systems teaches students these types of effective workplace skills.
Troubleshooting… and More Troubleshooting
Amatrol is the leader in technical skill development. We’ve applied our 25+ years of experience to create a Wind Turbine Technology program with the depth and breadth required for Wind Turbine Technicians. Like all Amatrol programs, Wind Turbine Technology is designed to teach troubleshooting and problem solving through:
- Computerized Fault Insertion
- Application Devices
- Performance Measurement
- Load Devices
Amatrol’s Wind Technology curriculum teaches the concepts Wind Turbine Technicians require. It follows up those concepts with hands-on skills practiced through application. Amatrol’s unique computer-based fault insertion allows instructors to create challenging, real-life problem situations. The program uses many types of application and load devices, both inertial and friction types, to help teach troubleshooting under realistic industrial conditions. Performance measurement follows through to create real, job-ready skills.
Wind Industry Partnership, Industrial Components
Amatrol’s Wind Turbine Technology Program has been developed with wind industry partners. In addition to partner input, Amatrol has used wind farm site visits, wind turbine technician interviews, task analysis and wind research to build a truly job-ready skills program. We augment this with industrial quality components to insure that students are trained with what they will encounter on the job.
