Basic Electrical Fundamentals
About this course…
Recently Revised! – Whether you are new to the industry or are taking on additional responsibilities for electrical maintenance, a solid knowledge of the basics is essential to understanding the operations, maintenance and safety of any facility or factory site. This is a hands-on practical introduction to those concepts and skills that serves as a prerequisite to further training and career enhancements for both technicians and managers.
Who should attend…
This training program is of benefit to electricians, technicians and multi-craft workers working on or near electrical conductors and circuit parts. Many of these workers do not have a solid understanding of electrical basics and cannot move forward in the careers effectively; they don’t know what they don’t know. This program ensures that those workers, especially workers new to the electrical field, have an adequate understanding of electrical theory and systems.
