COURSE DESCRIPTION
This course was previously the last 2 1/2 days of the
Intermediate SCR Maintenance course but now includes more
detail in teaching the fundamentals, schematics, and basic
troubleshooting associated with current SCR controls. This
course will include the latest in SCR control modules and
configurations. Maintenance personnel should attend this
course before being enrolled in the Advanced SCR
Maintenance Course. Do not consider the Intermediate DC
Drive Maintenance Course a basic course that can be
bypassed. The information covered in it is not covered in the
Advanced SCR Maintenance course. It is recommended that
an individual complete the Ross Hill Intermediate DC Drive
Maintenance course and the Ross Hill Intermediate
Engine/Generator Controls Maintenance course within the last
three years before enrolling in the Ross Hill Advanced SCR
Maintenance course.
