Schneider Electric provides VSD training
4th Quarter 2018, News & events


Schneider Electric recently hosted two complimentary VSD Schneider teachers’ courses at the French South African Schneider Electric Education Centre (F’SASEC), based at the Vaal University of Technology (VUT). These courses are aimed at giving both students and employees an introduction to motors and variable speed drives, further enhancing their future ability to operate and establish machines.

F’SASEC VUT offers courses to young, previously disadvantaged South Africans who are aspiring electrical artisans interested in pursuing a career in the field of energy. “One of our biggest goals is to spread access to reliable, affordable and clean energy through a combined approach of training, business models and investments. Essential to achieving this, is providing access to education through training programmes in the field of energy,” says Zanelle Dalglish, Anglophone Africa head of sustainable development.

Students studying at F’SASEC are already benefitting from a competitive edge in the workplace, thanks to the centre’s PLC automation labs. These labs are equipped with the latest automation tools, including variable speed drives, instrumentation and robotics, and aim to empower students with interface abilities, programming, and basic electronics skills. “The course offered by F’SASEC emphasises practical experience to prepare students for industry. The training centres feature the latest Schneider Electric technology, while also affording students the opportunity to benefit from advanced and digitised teaching methods,” Dalglish says. “In the face of IIoT and Industry 4.0, it is important that we develop the critical skills needed to adapt to this new business environment.
