SCR Training at the Zeefax Academy
The table below shows the detailed content and course schedule for the main SCR training course. In this course, we have tried to provide a broad spectrum of technical and operational information relating to the use and maintenance of a typical SCR system.
The course includes detailed discussion and functional analysis of the various electronic circuits, and therefore we strongly recommend that course delegates have some prior knowledge of electronics and electrical engineering.
The course is ideal for rig electrical maintenance and support engineers, who also have some prior knowledge of the workings of the installed SCR system, although it is also of great value as an introduction for those engineers who may be new to SCR systems.
Moving forward, it is hoped that the course will provide clarity and insight, enabling the rig engineers to better support and maintain their systems, thereby improving the reliability and ROI for the organisation.
