Finning Power Systems Course Catalogue General Information


Introduction This catalogue contains course descriptions, prerequisites and schedules for customer and Finning personnel. Classes range in size from 6 to 12 people. For schedule inquiries please call (403) 516-2805. To enroll, fax a properly completed copy of the enrollment form at the back of this book to (403) 516-2828. Do not consider an enrollment to be official until a confirmation letter has been received. Students must bring approved coveralls, safety glasses with side shields and safety footwear. Students without the proper safety equipment may not be allowed to participate in the lab activities. Also, since the majority of classes involve hands-on activity, suitable attire is suggested. Shorts are not permitted for safety reasons.

Enrollment

Safety Equipment

Hotel Reservations Upon receipt of confirmation, it is recommended that the customer or participant confirm reservations at the hotel listed. All hotel fees are the responsibility of the company or student attending. Fees Effective January 1, 2007 all schools will be $250.00 per student per day plus cost of material plus GST. Fees are NON REFUNDABLE and method of payment must be included with the enrollment form. If the student is unable to attend, please notify us at least 10 business days prior to the start of the course to avoid a 50% cancellation charge. Classes begin at 8:00am and end between 4:00pm and 5:00pm. Students are given one hour for lunch and will be responsible for their own meals. All Finning locations have several near-by-dining establishments to choose from. Students who do not attend the entire session will not be awarded a certificate of completion. For some classes the students require prerequisite courses as they may be taught in a progressive sequence. Please refer to the course descriptions to see if any apply. The majority of the courses are the same as those offered at Caterpillars Engine Training Division and therefore certain courses are recognized and certified by CAT. However, attending Caterpillar training does not certify a technician as qualified, after completion all that can be offered is a certificate of recognition for completing the course.

Finning Power Systems Course Catalogue Contents


The Training Catalogue includes predetermined course descriptions for training from operator maintenance to advanced level training for customer technicians on several Caterpillar model engines. Custom courses for Operation and Maintenance can be designed around each customers specific application to meet their needs. This requires a minimum of 60 days to organize the course objectives, agenda and material if the existing schedule allows. Operation & Maintenance Courses:

Operation and maintenance training courses are designed with a generic set of objectives and can be applied to most engine models, 3600 training requires more specific content. If the engine is part of a generator package, a generator maintenance segment can be added covering safety, cleaning, bearing maintenance and Megger testing procedures.
G3600 Operation & Maintenance10

Natural Gas Engine Technician Courses: Gas engine training is a two-part course covering topics from maintenance and basic gas principles on stoichiometric engines to advanced lean burn controls. All engine models are covered from G300 series with dual bank systems up to and including G3500 Series Lean Burn engines with Electronic Ignition Systems (EIS) and automatic Air/Fuel Ratio Control. - Gas Engines 1 ...................................................................................................... 4 - Gas Engines Il ...................................................................................................... 5 - G3600 Master Mechanic....................................................................................... 6 Electronics Courses: Electronic training uses specific objectives, but is geared towards diesel engine technology and the customers product and application. The electronic program is a two-part course; the first class can be done without the second. The second portion focuses on hands on training and troubleshooting techniques and requires the basic skills learned in part one. - Electrical Power Generation . 7 Additional Courses: - Applied Failure Analysis8 - Diesel Engine Fundamentals...9
