Power Transmission Principles

IDC University’s Power Transmission Principles course (PTP) is a four-day intensive study into the world of power transmission. PTP provides students with confidence in themselves, their company and the power transmission products they represent. This course is designed for inside and outside sales people from beginners to seasoned employees.

Throughout the course, major power transmission products are displayed, discussed, and selected until each student knows how and why specific products help their customers. Students apply what they’ve learned in class to design an operable drive to power a belt conveyor. 

Students Learn:

  • PT Fundamentals
  • Prime Movers
  • Adjustable Speed Drives
  • Tapered Bushings
  • Couplings
  • Roller Chain Drives
  • Rotary Shaft Seals
  • Helical Gearing
  • Worm Gear Reducers
