The Association of Energy Engineers is offering distance learning programs focused on Electrical Engineering Fundamentals for Non-Electrical Engineers and 3-D Load Profiling Using Interval Meter Data.

Instructed by Bobby Rauf, P.E., C.E.M., the Electrical Engineering Fundamentals for Non-Electrical Engineers course is specifically designed to provide professional training covering the essential aspects of electrical engineering of greatest relevance and practical value to non-electrical engineers. The basic principles of electricity are presented in a simple, easy-to-grasp format. Attendees will learn how to perform straightforward and common calculations associated with voltage, current, power, and power factor. The instructor will also present valuable charts and tables, which attendees can utilize as alternate method for estimating current, voltage, and power. Practical examples of electrical applications in industrial settings will be used to demonstrate the topics and procedures covered.

The 3-D Load Profiling Using Interval Meter Data course, instructed by Lindsay Audin, C.E.M., C.L.E.P., C.E.P., IES, and Engineered Systems columnist, will focus on how to use Excel® and interval meter data analysis to gain a clearer understanding of your electrical loads, and then utilize that information to cut your energy costs. The program is designed to provide you with a foundation in energy data analysis and advanced techniques for using information from interval metering and other sources. You'll receive instruction in advanced analytical techniques developed by the instructor using the Microsoft© Excel spreadsheet.

The content of AEE's professional distance learning programs will be as comprehensive as that of similar live seminars offered by AEE. State-of-the-art teleconferencing allows you to ask questions, get live answers, and interact with both the instructor and your classmates -- all in real time, using your own computer and a phone. Upon completion of the program, you will receive a certificate of completion from the Association of Energy Engineers showing your continuing education credit.

Realtime distance learning programs offer a great solution for busy professionals who need to stay up to speed on the latest solutions for their facilities, but who prefer to minimize both travel costs and time away from the office.
