ABB Motor and Variable Speed
Drive Online Courses

ABB Motor and Variable Speed Drive Online Courses: A huge benefit of working with an ABB Value Provider (VP) like IDS has always been the access to knowledge and training via the experts at ABB. We have in previous years hosted several successful free-to-attend training days at our centrally located facility. However, we know that not everyone can attend a physical training session, so we have collaborated with the experts at ABB to bring you and your team online training from ABB. A few of these courses are even CPD accredited and are available as and when you need them at no cost other than your teams time investment to hone their skills.
