Course Description

This is a 3-Day introductory course on the study of basic electrical concepts and circuits. The course will be based on Direct Current (DC) and Alternating Current (AC) concepts, terminology, components, and basic series/parallel circuits. Students will learn how to calculate and measure voltage, current and resistance in a basic series and parallel circuit. Students will learn how to utilize a Digital Multi-meter (DMM) to troubleshoot components in an electrical circuit, and test stand-alone components. The students will be introduced to DC and AC relay circuits, as well as electrical symbols that will be used on electrical prints. The course will have a heavy focus on troubleshooting concepts and techniques when working with electrical circuits.
