Basic Electricity Course Description
Our Basic Electricity Course provides a practical introduction to industrial electricity principles as applied to modern industrial, commercial and institutional electric power systems. This is an introduction to basic electricity, a course that will give you the knowledge you need to take the next step to advanced training for almost any profession that deals with electricity. This course will provide you with a solid foundation on which you can build. Whether you intend on continuing your education or apprenticing in any of the aforementioned trades you will start with a firm footing beneath you.

The subjects covered are a must for anyone who works with and around electricity or around electrical components. The fundamentals include electrical flow, Ohm's Law, electrical drawings, symbols and schematics, information on basic relay, breaker and fuse operation, as well as AC transformers and electric motors. These subjects are explained thoroughly without the unnecessary complex math. Participants will assemble practical circuits in which they will apply the concepts learned.

If you are interested in pursuing a career in anyone of the fields listed below should take this program first. By learning the fundamentals now you will be gaining a fast track to your career of choice.

  • Appliance Service Technicians
  • Automobile Mechanics
  • Office Machine Technicians (for copiers, faxes, printers, etc.)
  • Computer Service Technicians
  • Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Technicians

SPECIAL NOTE:

Students are encouraged to bring their laptop computers to the course to learn how electrical circuits are analyzed using one of today's leading software simulation tools.

This Basic Electricity Course is designed for personnel entering into the electrical field who need a solid background in AC/DC concepts; non-electrical personnel requiring basic electrical knowledge, cross-training or electrical technicians that need a review.

Our Basic Electricity Course is ideal for both the beginner and someone with years of experience but no formal training. It is practical in nature - it will cover subjects that an industrial, commercial or institutional electrician must know to be effective. This course is designed to be practical, with procedures and things you need to know to effectively troubleshoot electrical circuits and systems.

The Basic Electricity Course begins with the fundamentals of industrial electricity by explaining Voltage, Current, Resistance, and Power, which then leads to a brief discussion of Ohm s Law. Following this, there will be a lengthy discussion of electrical symbols and drawings, which includes analyzing drawings of the electrical systems.

The balance of the Basic Electricity Course centers on Generators, Transformers, Motor, Motor Controls and Power Circuits, Electrical Protective Devices, and Wiring Systems in three-phase and single-phase distribution systems.

LEARNING OUTCOMES
This Basic Electricity Course program introduces the important rules and fundamentals related to basic industrial electricity. Learn how DC and AC circuits are designed and integrate generators, transformers and motors. Also, students will learn the basics of electrical protection and control. Know the methods of estimating and measuring current flow and voltage drop in circuits. Students will also learn power factor and how it can be controlled.
