Equipment Drive Components: Couplings

SKU: AOEP00CENDuration: 120 Minutes

This course is designed to familiarize participants with basic concepts associated with the operation of equipment drive components, in general, and couplings and clutches, in particular. After completing this course, participants should be able to describe the general function of equipment drive components and some general operator checks and safety concerns related to equipment drive components. They should also be able to identify and describe various types of couplings and a typical clutch, and they should be able to describe common operator checks and concerns that apply to these particular equipment drive components.
