Basic Electricity | Lecture Course

4-Day | 3.2 CEUs | $1,335 | Lecture | Course #345 | Mon-Fri 8 am-4:30 pm

This course is intended for new or cross-training technicians, electricians and supervisors responsible for maintenance of electrical equipment. It provides basic information regarding quantifying and measuring basic elements in an electrical circuit. Participants are familiarized with multi-meter usage and basic electrical circuit components. A firm grasp of the fundamentals of electricity is the basis for becoming a successful electrical maintenance technician. All too often, maintenance personnel have to jump right into electrical maintenance with no training, or perhaps minimal on-the-job training that skips the fundamentals and focuses solely on a specific application. Improper fundamentals training may result in technicians performing tasks without understanding the reason why or the implications of the changes.

♦ Learning Objectives

  • Explain the concepts of AC and DC electricity
  • Calculate voltage, wattage, resistance, current and power factor values
  • Select appropriate test equipment for taking voltage measurements
  • Interpret multi-meter readings
  • Identify the effects of resistors, inductors and capacitors
  • Develop single-phase and three-phase circuit diagrams

♦ Requirements
The student must bring a trigonometric calculator.
