Practical hands-on training from industry experts.
SEAM Group has been the choice of many organizations worldwide for electrical safety training. All of our on-site training is tailored to meet your facility’s unique needs. We designed our training to specifically benefit those working in electrical maintenance, and we accommodate all levels of experience, from new employees to seasoned veterans.
Our expert trainers have decades of experience working in a wide variety of industries, but that doesn’t mean that we make safety concepts difficult to put into practice. Instead of getting slowed down by hard-to-grasp theory and impractical concepts, our trainers emphasize realistic maintenance situations that are quickly applicable to the work itself. SEAM is dedicated to keeping your training practical: if you don’t need it for your job, we don’t cover it!

Electrical Safety Courses
NFPA 70E Plus
Basic Industrial Electricity / NFPA 70E / Hands-On Troubleshooting
There is 70E training and then there is 70E PLUS. The National Electrical Code, NFPA 70E and OSHA now all require that individuals receive OSHA safety training before they can be considered Qualified to perform electrical preventive maintenance. Some of the topics included for this training must be:
How to select an appropriate volt-meter
How to determine nominal voltage
How to determine the appropriate PPE (personal protective equipment) for the hazard
How to determine Approach Distances based on Voltage
Requirements of OSHA 1910.331 through 1910.335
In addition it is important they become familiar with the NFPA 70E training requirements by NFPA 70E: Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace – 2018 Edition.
Electrical Safe Work Practices
This electrical safety course is designed for all personnel who work on, around or near any type of electrically energized equipment. Electrical hazards, proper electrical work practices, electrical safety training and procedures, and the safe installation of electrical equipment will be discussed.
You will be introduced to the rules and regulations as required by the OSHA Electrical Safety-Related Work Practices Standard 1910.331-1910.335. Designed to keep workers safe and up-to-date, this course provides life-saving information. It is perfect for those who need refresher training, or those who have had little exposure to proper work practices.
High Voltage Safety
High Voltage Safety covers the key aspect of the OSHA Generation, Transmission and Distribution Standard, 29 CFR 1910.269. This standard applies to organizations that either generate electricity or transmit energy to others. It also applies to organizations that have their own substations or electrical distribution systems. During this electrical safety program, you will learn to recognize and avoid unsafe work areas. You will also learn correct approach distances. Upon completion of this electrical training, you will have a better understanding of proper voltage rated tools and the use of proper personal protective equipment (PPE). By educating workers on the high voltage safety issues central to the safe performance of their every day jobs, loss of life or serious injuries can be reduced and eliminated with safety workplace training.
2017 National Electrical Code
This 2-day course is designed to provide a complete overview of the general chapters in the National Electrical Code® including the most pertinent 2017 changes. Participants will learn how to effectively use the 2017 NEC® in applying it to their everyday jobs. This course is geared specifically for personnel in large buildings, facilities, and industrial settings. Selection of conductors and over-current devices will be discussed, as well as wiring methods, wiring materials, grounding & bonding, plus so much more.
Electrical Maintenance Courses
Basic Industrial Electricity
Often copied, never duplicated, this is the original “Basic Industrial Electricity” course. This is the premier electrical training course in the industry. In this one day of electrical training, attendees will be equipped with the skills that an Industrial or Institutional Electrician must know to be effective. This is not a class on electrical theory; the discussion will be on practical procedures and knowledge and skills needed to troubleshoot safely and effectively.
This powerful one-day electrical training course will give you a solid foundation in Industrial Electricity. Starting with the fundamentals of electricity by explaining voltage, current, resistance, and power, the course covers a brief discussion of Ohm’s Law. This course is great for both the beginner and someone with years of experience but no formal electrical installation training. It is PRACTICAL. We will not waste your time with theory. The knowledge you take out of this electrical training course can be used immediately and will be used on a daily basis. Although not an electrical safety class, this is a great complement to any OSHA electrical training you may receive.
3-Phase Motor Basics
This 3-phase motor course is designed for those individuals who are familiar with the concepts covered in our Basic Industrial Electricity seminar and want to further their training in this field. Attending Basic Industrial Electricity is not a prerequisite for attending, but it is recommended.
This course covers three phase motors in more detail than Basic Industrial Electricity. Motor construction, nameplate data, and principles of operations are discussed as well as terminal markings, electrical connections, and enclosure styles. The course includes how to properly size overloads, fuses and circuit breakers to protect motors. Attendees will learn the common causes of failure for electric motors and the proper steps necessary in troubleshooting. PLCs will also be introduced and discussed in the context of how they apply to maintenance personnel. This will be a good introduction for someone who knows little about PLCs. There will be a discussion on the general operation and basic troubleshooting procedures as well. The material covered in this electrical training will be practical and is designed to make an immediate positive impact on your maintenance department.
Hands-On Electrical Troubleshooting
This intensive one-day hands-on course covers the troubleshooting and repair of control circuits and components. The novice, as well as the experienced electrician, will learn how to safely and efficiently build, troubleshoot, and repair motor control circuits using the hands-on troubleshooting methods. Attendees will build circuits on realistic training panels that contain a motor starter, relays, terminal strips, push buttons, selector switches, and limit switches. After the circuits are built, the instructor will introduce a realistic fault into the circuit. With the instructor’s help, you will be asked to repair the faulty circuit by using your multimeter and the techniques learned earlier in the day.
This course is hands-on and practical in its approach to troubleshooting. The examples completed in this course are shown to be applicable to practices in any facility. To ensure the quality of this program, this course has limited seating.
Troubleshooting Control Circuits & 3 Phase Motors
In this course you will learn the functions of off-delay timers, photo-electric sensors, and alternating relays – all while working with motor starters, selector switches, push buttons, control relays, and timers as well as how to properly troubleshoot three-phase electric motors.
Compared to Hands-on Electrical Troubleshooting I, you can expect to wire, troubleshoot and repair more challenging electrical circuits. You will build electrical circuits that represent common industrial uses such as tank fill control and duplex-pump control and then repair them after the instructor has inserted a realistic fault. The instructor will work with you one-on-one to find and fix the problem. You will also learn and apply, through hands-on exercises, how to properly test, and troubleshoot three-phase motors.
This course is hands-on and gives each attendee the opportunity to work with real electrical components – while building and troubleshooting from ladder diagrams. If you have already attended Hands-On Electrical Troubleshooting I, this course will be a nice compliment to the knowledge you have gained. To ensure the quality of this program, this course has limited seating.
