The Snell Group is a leader in Electric Motor Testing (EMT) using portable, computer-supported test equipment to monitor and trend the condition of electric motors and supporting circuitry to reveal a wide-range of hidden problems.

Our team of Snell Electric Motor Testing experts has decades of experience in EMT training and consulting, starting with some of the earliest test methods, including low resistance bridges, oscilloscopes, megohmmeters and many more. EMT has evolved to the point where it needs to be an integral part of a company’s asset management program.

Taking an electric motor testing class is an essential part of a company’s ability to create and maintain a successful condition monitoring/PdM program. EMT courses are available in multiple formats to meet the wide ranging needs of our customers seeking continuous professional development, including:

  • Customized on-site EMT classes at your facility using your own tester.
  • EMT training courses at public locations around the world.
  • An electric motor testing class that addresses your EMT certification needs.
  • Information sharing through newsletters, tips, white papers, and online forums.

Taking an electric motor testing training will qualify the technician to gather and interpret data, which will bring a greater return on investment in your motor program. Electric motor testing classes consist of online (energized/dynamic) testing as well as offline (de-energized/static) testing.

This EMT course is designed to support offline motor testing. It includes electrical theory, motor construction and the detection of failure modes.
The intent of The Snell Group's training is to provide trainees with the theoretical knowledge and procedural awareness to utilize current time domains, and spectral data to localize electrical and mechanical anomalies that affect motor performance and reliability.
