Surge Protection Seminars
Free Factory Seminars
Professional Engineer PDH’s & CEU’s:
For over twenty years, APT has offered IEEE accredited Engineering Seminars where PDHs (qualified and approved by IEEE) can be earned that are recognized and accepted by most states, including rigorous states of Florida and New York. This course starts with basics and proceeds through advanced topics including UL, IEEE & NEC and is standards-based, not sales-oriented. This may be the most efficient and comprehensive seven hours of Surge Protective Device (SPD) training available. Engineers appreciate the explanation of the science, art and marketing surrounding the surge industry. This course is approved for State of Florida PDHs. Some of the course topics include:
Explanation of electrical transients – where they come from, what they do
Technical standards and codes for surge suppression – IEEE, UL, NEMA, etc.
2005 & 2008 NEC changes addressing TVSS
Recent UL 1449 changes
Recommended performance ratings and why
Myths and realities of TVSS and Surge Protective Devices (SPDs)
Live testing and failure testing demonstrations in UL Qualified Client Test Data Lab
