We discuss the RMD world, equipment, safety and much more. DO NOT attempt to do any hands-on work with the proper safety PPE and a hands-on class. This training is ONLY for experienced High Voltage technicians.

“L3 Webinar Test Prep Part 1” (TAR0L3)

ACDC has been at every ASE test writing session and the previous events that ASE sponsored years ago.  ACDC has a 90 page full color Preparation Guide and web based support materials. Craig Van Batenburg (CEO, ASE Master and L1 Certified) took the L3 test the first day it was offered (January 2, 2015) and feels strongly that the ACDC L3 materials will be a huge advantage.  Here is what you get for $150 plus $16 for Shipping and Handling (48 states).
