Yaskawa Americas recently released a Drive Basics eLearning module on its website. This eLearning module provides a basic understanding of variable frequency drives including applications, starting methods, purpose of VFDs, drive walkthrough, typical enclosure types, review and more. This module is available at the website below.
These videos are user-friendly, computer-based training lessons that are effective, time efficient, instruction that can be performed anytime or anywhere there is a computer or mobile device. This is a perfect way to get the training you need in the least amount of time. eLMs and eLVs do not replace factory style training classes, but complement them. While eLearning does not allow for some traditional training practices such as product hands-on exercises or student discussions it does provide a very specific lesson in a short amount of time. Yaskawa recommends that students with limited prior experience, requiring a broader understanding of their products, attend a traditional factory training class along with using the eLearning curriculum.
