Basics of Industrial Electricity Training Course 

Basics of Industrial Electricity Training Course 

Our Basics of Industrial Electricity Training Course is certified by the National Technology Transfer, Inc. The training is CEU-eligible depending on your state or local licensing agency. 

This training will teach the rudimentary concepts of electricity, including voltage, current, wiring, switches and circuits as well as how they apply to electrical devices. You will then learn how to safely and efficiently troubleshoot, wire or repair electrical systems with the correct tools and equipment.

The Basics of Industrial Electricity Training Course does not require a prerequisite. Classes usually include 15 participants or less. Textbooks, manuals and other course materials will be provided to you and are covered in the cost of the course. 

Course Curriculum

The electrical control circuits training course curriculum follows an intuitive knowledge-building structure with lectures and hands-on lab exercises. 

Basic Electricity

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

Multimeter basics training includes education about analog and digital multimeters, solenoid meters and accessories. 

Electrical Safety

You will learn about basic safety guidelines and the different forms of safety equipment that electricians use. 

Wiring Devices

Common wiring devices training includes measuring voltage receptacles, learning about the types/grades of current, probing circuits, GFCI connections and more.

Lighting and Heating

You will learn about the different types of lamps, preheat, rapid start, instant start and resistance.  

Raceways and Conductors

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. 

Tools and Test Equipment

You will learn about electricians’ various tools and equipment, from cutting tools and measuring devices to voltage and continuity testers.
