Class Topics:

The 1000 Series Industrial Drive Application Programming class is designed for technicians and engineers that need to know how to incorporate an A1000, P1000, or U1000 Drive into an application. Students will learn to adjust parameters in the drive using both the keypad and DriveWizard, to perform function demonstrations. Basic and advanced drive parameters will be discussed as well as drive monitors. A variety of hands on exercises in class will help the student thoroughly learn what the parameters functions do and how to set them up.  And throughout the class, the student will practice what they've learned by successfully completing application stories.

Social Distancing During Training Classes:

Yaskawa America, Technical Training Services follows the Center for Disease Control’s (CDC’s) recommendation of social distancing at least six feet during factory training classes held at the Yaskawa America facilities in Waukegan, IL and Cypress, CA. To meet these recommendations, we’ve physically rearranged the classrooms and limited the number of students enrolled in the class.

Students must adhere to Yaskawa’s safety protocol for mask or face shield utilization in all Yaskawa training facilities. Students must bring with them and wear during the class, a face mask or face shield that has been approved by the CDC for COVID-19 face protection.


Yaskawa TTS provides a number of training classes for its customers that require the use of low level voltages (120vac, 208vac and 460vac). To ensure a level of safety for the student while working with training class equipment using these voltages, TTS follows an Arc Flash Policy that is consistent with NFPA 70E.

Each student attending class must wear non-melting, untreated, natural fiber long pants.


No prerequisite. However, it will be helpful if the attendee has some experience programming any of Yaskawa’s Drives.
