Motor and Drive Troubleshooting Online Course

The Motor and Drive Troubleshooting online course is designed to help maintenance professionals better understand the electrical, electronic and mechanical aspects of motor-drive system health.

This course will help you better evaluate and troubleshoot three categories of common motor/drive issues: erratic, repeating, and preventable faults and failures. Constantly troubleshooting the same or similar motor and drive problems can not only be a headache, it can severely impact uptime and the cost of doing business. That's why, at Fluke Corporation, we've developed an online training course designed to help maintenance professionals better understand the electrical, electronic and mechanical aspects of motor-drive system health.


In this 4-hour online course you will learn:

  • Motor-drive inspection and diagnosis skills for quick repairs
  • How to evaluate component failure, installation issues, and deeper system level issues
  • How to identify the root cause of failures

Module 1: How to assess erratic problems in motor-drive systems
Module 2: How to assess repeat problems in motor-drive systems
Module 3: How to prevent motor-drive problems from recurring
