This is a practical hands-on course that takes place in the classroom with trainer present 100% of the time to ensure a safe learning environment. Max of 6 per course to allow trainer time to work with each participant individually. Course will assist you to gain a basic competency to interact safely and effectively re electrical and plant related issues.
If you answer YES to questions below you may like to join our course:
Would you like to develop a knowledge and understanding of AC and DC Electricity, their application and uses?
Would you like to be more effective at work due to knowledge gained of how electrical systems operate?
Would you like to gain a greater understanding of the principle of Electromagnetism for Generator effect or Motor effect?
Would you like to improve your confidence by having a better appreciation of the importance of Electricity safety issues for safe and effective interaction with electricity?
Would you like to apply theory gained into practical exercises involving resistors, lighting and motor circuits, using tools, meters and work-boards.?
Are you interested in a review of best use of electrical energy, with overview of latest energy efficient appliances and drives?
Each participant is supplied with:
Box of tools
Cables / flex
All components along with
A set of notes
Participants build up their board under the guidance of the course instructor.
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 work-boards 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.
