Basic Industrial Electricity and Troubleshooting

Starting with the fundamentals of electricity, using a blend of easily understood analogies and basic theory, participants learn “what circuits are supposed to do.” Sophistical software using virtual troubleshooting examples then allow them to see “what the circuits are doing” and determine why they are not performing as they should— “what’s the difference?”

Students are quickly involved in real examples illustrating the use and distribution of electricity in their own facilities. The use of the National Electrical Code in determining proper wire sizes and materials is part of the learning process. Choosing and properly using electrical test equipment is important to doing everyday jobs and is covered in detail. Students get practice using virtual test equipment in practical everyday situations.

The right blend of theory and practice helps students, “put it all together.” By the end of the seminar participants will have a solid foundation for safely performing electrical work.
