The course of instruction will cover basic job safety concepts and regulatory requirements, basic math used in the construction trades, the use of common hand and power tools, and an introduction to blueprint reading, material handling, communication and employability skills.
This course provides a basic understanding of how electrical energy is used to produce useful work, how it is measured and tested, and the calculations required for analyzing electrical circuits. Topics of study include direct-current (DC) and alternating-current (AC) systems, transformer operation, basic electronic components and semiconductors.
This course is designed for you to learn the basic skills needed in the electrical craft that include working safely with electricity, proper usage of hand and power tools, procedures for installing electrical conduit, boxes, wiring, and determining minimum installation requirements of the National Electrical Code.
This course explores the basic construction, operation, and maintenance of various direct-current (DC) motors, single-phase and three-phase alternating-current (AC) motors, and the minimum National Electrical Code requirements for circuits supplying motors. Students also learn to install basic control circuits to stop, start, and reverse motors.
This course familiarizes the student with the materials and methods used for installing a complete electrical system for a typical residence. Students will learn and practice techniques for installing non-metallic sheathed cables, device boxes, receptacles, switches, lighting fixtures, circuit breaker panels, and service entrance equipment.
This course familiarizes the student with the various types of electrical equipment used to distribute power within a building including service entrance equipment, switchgear, transformers, and backup power sources.
