Purpose of Seminar:

Do you know how your UPS system works? Do you even know if it works? And if it does, do you know what to do if the power goes out? What about when the power comes back on?

This information packed seminar is designed to help attendees answer these questions at their facilities.

Backup emergency systems are essential, but only valuable if you properly maintain and test them, know how they work, and have the people on staff trained to work with them in emergency situations.

This class is designed to make sure your plant and facility personnel are ready for anything.
