Course Summary & Description:
This manual is designed to provide the student with a basic understanding of electricity and electrical systems necessary to safely operate and maintain an electrical facility. The information is presented to provide a foundation for applying engineering concepts to this job.
The course is split into two separate modules. Module 1 covers Basic Electrical Theory, and Module 2 covers Basic DC Theory. Module 1 describes basic electrical concepts and introduces electrical terminology to the student, while Module 2 describes the basic concepts of direct current (DC) electrical circuits and discusses the associated terminology.
After completing the course, the student will gain a better understand of Ohm’s Law, Kirchoff’s Laws, Lentz’s Law, and Faraday’s Law. In addition, students will also grasp a better understand and be able to apply various electrical terms and parameters to the range of applications necessary to facilitate performance of electrical calculations to obtain resistance, current, voltage, capacitance, inductance, and more. In conclusion, one will be able to understand and identify the various electrical diagrams necessary for electrical installation.
Important Note: Please recognize this course covers all the material found in EE0020 and EE0120. If you purchase this course, we strongly recommend you do not opt for the previously listed courses, since the course material will be redundant.
