In an effort to help train the industry, Schneider Electric has unveiled a series of webinars, e-learning modules and podcasts that will enable ECN readers to boost their skills.
The next three webinars to take place are as follows:
April 7 at 12.30pm – Electrical fire prevention – session 2
Electrical installations can deteriorate with age. This can depend on environmental factors such as heat and humidity, as well as damage during use. Potential hazards such as electric shocks, burns, explosion and fire can occur if proper safety precautions are ignored or neglected. But hazards can also exist because the electrical system of a facility or home was not designed or installed properly.
In this CPD, Schneider will consider the six most common causes of electrically ignited fire, and focus on the latest solutions to help mitigating such hazards.
This CPD will be presented by Category Marketing Manager, Christos Archeos.
April 9 at 12.30pm – Customer Architecture (CPD)
This CPD will introduce customer architectures and explain how by combining functions in an integrated way, design efficiencies can be realised. In order to reference the presentation, Schneider will consider a data centre application including philosophy, resilience, electrical, mechanical and digital architectures. This CPD webinar will be presented by Electra Power System Engineer, Vincent Bollard.
April 16 at 1.30pm – Ecostruxure Plant Builder
Learn with Schneider’s specialists how to simplify and optimise the way you design your automation architectures.
Further details on all of the webinars are available on Schneider Electric’s website, and the company also has on-demand webinars and e-learning modules available on its electrician portal. These cover topics including the 18th Edition of the Wiring Regulations, RCD technology, surge protection and how to make an effective website.

Schneider is also launching a range of podcasts, which will be available via this Spotify link in the coming days. Planned episodes include the Electrical Industries Charity, Voltimum’s training academy, marketing for small businesses, connectivity, RCDs, EV charging and more.
