Learn the Nature and Applications of Industrial Electricity and How to Wire, Operate, and Troubleshoot a Circuit, All in One Combination Seminar!

Workshop Description/Agenda

4 day Hands-on
3.2 Continuing Education Credits

Understand the basics of electricity generation and delivery in the first half of the course. Learn to safely use the proper measurement instruments and tools to understand the characteristics and properties of electrical signals. The terms voltage, current and impedance (resistance) will become standard in your electrical conversations.

In the second half of this course, you will learn how to effectively diagnose electrical control circuit problems. You will experience live circuit faults in a real world scenario. Become a confident and safe troubleshooter from techniques presented.

Approximately 60% of the time is spent working hands-on with the same controls circuits and devices commonly used on HVAC systems, pump systems, hydraulics, conveyors and automated machines.
