Students will be introduced to electrical symbols, one-line and three-line electrical schematics and their content, including basic layout and legends. Participants will participate in practical exercises in schematic reading, diagram verification and the steps required for creating and maintaining accurate one line diagrams. Participants are encouraged to bring examples of their own facility's prints to use during practical exercises. Low, medium and high-voltage installations can be reviewed as requested by participants.
In order to comply with the above-mentioned regulations, complete and up-to-date electrical single-line diagrams and equipment operating and control schematics must be made available in the work place. These important documents are required to be updated as necessary or as equipment changes or is modified and sometimes verified on an annual basis. In addition, this two-day program is designed to provide knowledge of the various types of electrical diagrams used in the industry, and to develop the skills necessary to read, draw and interpret these diagrams.
YOU WILL LEARN HOW TO:
Electrical technicians, field engineers, project managers, inspectors, contractors, and journeyman electricians who depend on effective skills and knowledge required in this ever changing fast pace electrically driven environment.
