“It was an honor to be asked by the electrical training ALLIANCE, etA, to develop limited energy educational materials and partner with them to share this valuable training resource,” said Heneveld. “With 30 years in the industry ranging from selling, designing, installing and servicing systems, to teaching and consulting, I am delighted to empower others and share key aspects of A/V in a non-intimidating way. I want everyone to learn and understand the technology that impacts our daily lives.”

etA, the training partnership between IBEW and NECA electricians, will use the book to train electricians in their 60-plus electrical training centers across the U.S. In addition, technical information will be incorporated into their blended learning curriculum to further educate electricians on the limited energy industry.

This affordable book sells for $45 and is available for purchase through Heneveld’s online training company, www.bedrocklearning.com. For technicians starting out in the field, or those who could benefit from a refresher, the book lays a solid A/V foundation.
