Live Online Basic Electricity (3-Day)


A firm grasp of the fundamentals of electricity is the basis for becoming a successful electrical maintenance technician. Often, maintenance personnel have to jump right into electrical maintenance with no training, or minimal on-the-job training that skips the fundamentals and focuses solely on a specific application. This may result in technicians performing tasks without understanding the reason why or the implications of changes they are making on the electrical circuit. All this can lead to unsafe activities and damages to electrical equipment.

This course provides basic information regarding quantifying and measuring basic elements in a DC and AC electrical circuit. Participants are introduced to basic electrical circuit components and basic circuitry troubleshooting. This course is intended for new or cross-training technicians, electricians and supervisors responsible for maintenance of electrical equipment.
