The electrical control circuits training course curriculum follows an intuitive knowledge-building structure with lectures and hands-on lab exercises.
Basic electricity training will form a foundation for the rest of the course. You will learn about current, calculations, Ohm’s Law, Kirchhoff’s Laws and more.
Multimeter basics training includes education about analog and digital multimeters, solenoid meters and accessories.
You will learn about basic safety guidelines and the different forms of safety equipment that electricians use.
Common wiring devices training includes measuring voltage receptacles, learning about the types/grades of current, probing circuits, GFCI connections and more.
You will learn about the different types of lamps, preheat, rapid start, instant start and resistance.
You will learn about raceways and conductors, including solid and stranded conductors, cables and conduits.
Wiring education includes training on split bolts, terminal blocks and low-voltage circuits.
You will learn about electricians’ various tools and equipment, from cutting tools and measuring devices to voltage and continuity testers.
From DC power sources and voltmeters to AC generators, you will learn about the various generators and transformers.
We will cover solid-state devices, including resistor color codes, resistor boards, rectifiers and solid-state switches.
You will learn about the various protective devices like sensors and lights, testing fuses and circuit breakers.
The electrical drawing and symbols module includes education on blueprints, NEMA symbols and schematics.
You will learn about the various electrical motors and their constructions, including single-phase, three-phase and DC motors. You will also learn about the theory of operation.
