Ten reasons to buy this course and know this material:
10. If you're an electrical worker, you will encounter harmonics.
9. Being able to address harmonics properly avoids stress, reduces
cost, and saves time.
8. Having this knowledge allows you to quickly zero in on the
appropriate solutions, which is very good for your image in these layoff-prone
7. This course is a lot quicker than the typical trial and error
(mostly error) approach to harmonics.
6. This course focuses on what you really need to know, in a way you
5. The wrong approach to harmonics can tie you up for weeks on end;
a proper approach sets you free to do other things.
4. This knowledge helps you make the right decisions about harmonics.
3. Taking an informed approach to dealing with harmonics is just the
right thing to do.
2. By taking this course, you gain insight into specifics of solving
harmonics in a way that is efficient, productive, and permanent.
and the number one reason to buy this course and learn
1. You owe it to yourself to know this
information. Why limit yourself to being a slave of guesswork, when this knowledge
can set you free?
This looks really interesting but I can't figure out what you are sending or how you are sending it.
These are downloadable files. In other words, you get download instructions as soon as the buying part is done and you get the files right away.
What is it that I'm going to get and how? Is it a file that I’ll download? Is it mailed?
As soon as your purchase is complete, you will receive download instructions both on screen and via e-mail. You download self-extracting zip file that contains the course material. Depending on the course, the individual files will be in the rich text format or in the e-book format. Most materials are in the easier-to-handle rich text format.
Are we talking about a lot of pages for me to read?
Here's something that pleasantly surprises most people about these.
If you look at a typical $99 professional book, most of it is filler. These courses don't have the filler. Ditto for $995 seminars covering the same information. Our courses get right to the meat, saving you the effort of wading through pages of nonsense. We don't mass up the high overhead of generating the filler, and we pass the savings on to our customers.
Do your courses on project management prepare me for the various certification routes of the Project Management Institute?
No. The material does not focus on exam preparation. It focuses on improving your real-world skills. However, what you learn will not impede certification.
Are you one of the approved (by PMI) course providers?
No. We are not affiliated with the Project Management Institute, although we may consider going that direction. Our goal is not to make you spend a lot
of money learning how to answer test questions. Our goal is to teach you how to do your job better.
How long does each of your courses take?
It depends on the student. These courses are essentially white papers with exercises to help you relate the information to what you are doing now. You can read the material in each course in under an hour. But, how long it takes to digest it and apply it is up to you.
Do I have to buy books in addition to your course material? Will those books have to be bought from you?
To both questions, no. You don't have to buy anything else. Each course stands on its own.
What if your course material is not clear? Are your course writers available for clarification? Since it is not possible to read all material at one shot, and collect all questions at the same time, will the course writers be available as needed or on a one time basis?
a. It will be clear.
c. Your success is important. If you have a question that is germane to the material, and not a probe for free consulting services, we will help you understand the material. We have kept the prices low, because not everyone can afford $995 for a two-day seminar that amounts to little more than a book promo. This is not a book promo.
What if I have other questions?
We'll answer to whatever extent is reasonable. It may be possible that you will ask questions that require developing a new course--some aspect of successful project management we didn't cover and that is not part of the normal project management training regimen. In that case, you would get the new course for free.
Do you have other courses?
Yes, and we are developing more. You can always write to us with specific needs, and we will adjust our product development accordingly. Also, it's a good idea to check Mindconnection on a regular basis, just to see what is new.
Who writes these courses?
That depends on the subject. For example, Dr. Jay Prince wrote the behavior courses based on his experience as a licensed therapist.
All of the courses are well-researched and devoid of pseudoscience. Most are written by a subject matter expert. All are reviewed by a professional editor for clarity and succinctness.
Do your courses qualify for employer reimbursement?
Possibly not, because they are not accredited. Then again, our cost is very low. So, you must ask yourself if that small amount is worth investing into the skills you need to keep yourself employed and employable.
The goal here is not to pile up paper credits. The goal is to get the information you would ordinarily get only from a lifetime of working in project management--if even then. We save you "classroom time" in the "school of hard knocks." You will recover your investment (and then some), simply because you will be that much better at what you do.
How much time can I reasonably expect to save, once I use the principles in your time management course?
That depends on how you presently approach your work. The typical student can expect to increase productivity by 50%. If you look at the way most people do their work, and then work your way through the course, you'll see why this is so. The author of that course works three full-time jobs and is Chair for one non-profit and acting Chair for another. Yet, he manages to excel in all of these roles while still maintaining outstanding health and enjoyment of life.
With today's pervasive non-linear loads, harmonics in the electrical distribution systems of industrial and commercial buildings demand attention. Harmonics cause excess heat, wasted power, and, in many cases, severe equipment damage. However, the hype about harmonics tends to push people into spending money they shouldn't spend, curing the wrong problems while leaving the real problems unsolved.
This course will give you a solid understanding of harmonics causes and cures, so you can handle them effectively and efficiently.
No more guesswork, no more misinformation, no more needless expense.
For a long time, we were dealing with the black magic called "harmonics" and spent a lot of time and money doing things that sometimes seemed to make things worse. The problem was our electrical engineer had no training in this and neither did our electricians. We hired a couple of different shops to help us and it became clear they had no training in it either.
So on my own I started looking for something to help explain harmonics on a practical level. After buying several books, I was becoming discouraged. They were all theory and jargon suitable maybe for an engineering course but not for a day to day electrician like myself. Then I got this course and everything clicked.
Using my new understanding, I began working with our plant electrical engineer on solving our problems. Then he'd come up with projects, like removing the ground loops on a particular production line.
We are seeing far fewer burned up motors, dead lighting ballasts, and other harmonics-related problems than a year ago. We are still working on things, but this time we know what we are doing and the results are proof.
Good harmonics course, 8.9.2011
Reviewer: Lucy Hanson (San Francisco, CA)
This gives a solid theoretical background on harmonics, and a good practical "how to solve" aspect. I think anyone taking this course can solve any harmonics problem in any facility.
What's missing from it is a listing of product recommendations. I now think I understand what to do about harmonics problems in our plant, but not specifically in terms of what equipment to buy. That might be a bit too much to expect, but figuring that out is now where I am.
I was impressed with the complete lack of gobbledegook. This is the best text I have yet seen on harmonics, and we have gone through a pile of books. All of them useless. This course is like having a sharp engineer talk directly with you to help you understand.
We've implemented a few of the suggestions and ideas, and so far things are working out quite well as a result.
