Power System Protection Testing with the OMICRON Test Universe Virtual Class
April 28 - 30, 2020 | US

Please join us for an interactive 3-day virtual event that will include all the instructional topics from our regular in-person CMC class in 12 hours of online training.  The instructor will be showing you how to use the software and setup the CMC to perform various tests.  We will be responding to written questions throughout the instructor’s presentation and take time for your verbal questions with the instructor at the end of each session.

The OMICRON Academy focuses on providing an “Engineer’s Playground” to allow you to learn in a safe environment.  With the current situations, we invite you to migrate your learning to our virtual online playground.

Certificates will only be provided to those who are registered and attend.
These training events are eligible for NETA Continuing Technical Development Credits (CTDs).
