Basic Electrical Training course is a general introduction to industrial electrical systems. The course teaches a basic understanding of how electrical equipment and systems operate in industrial, commercial and institutional facilities. Students will be presented with practical, real world examples that illustrate how power is distributed and used in plants and facilities.
The course will also deal with “Working with Industrial Electricity” – discussions and activities focus on real world, everyday electrical tasks performed on the job. Students will receive an introduction to either NFPA 70E or CSA Z462 arc flash/electrical safety standard information, as the starting point for all electrical work. Students will also learn how to choose the right tools, materials and clothing for the job and how to perform basic electrical repairs and installations. A discussion on proper wiring will be followed by practical tips for electrical troubleshooting. The course presents an overview of other common electrical work activities such as preventive maintenance.
