On completion of this course
* Participants will have learned and understood electrical theory and principles.
* They have applied this understanding with the practical use of multimeters, tools, cables and workboards to complete progressive stages of exercises culminating in the test and operation of a direct-on-line single-phase motor installation.
* All participants have demonstrated both understanding and practical application and have successfully achieved the objectives of this course.
