The instructor presented many examples both hands on and real life that provided me with increased level of understanding. I think the mix of theory and hands-on was balanced and maximized my learning.
Electrical BasicsAn introductory course in the fundamentals of basic electrical theory, control panels, component identification, motor design and application. Electrical schematic diagram analysis and the proper use of multi-meters is also covered.
Electrical Theory and DrawingsAn introduction to DC logic, sensors, and troubleshooting. In addition, students will learn about control panels, motor starters, and digital/analog sensors.
Electrical TroubleshootingElectrical troubleshooting course that integrates all concepts and principles covered in Electrical Basics. A system-wide approach is used in integrating many different industrial components. Students will learn to properly assemble and wire up electrical panels and power connections used in commercial applications, effectively troubleshoot AC/DC circuits using customer drawings and correct diagnostic equipment.
Motor ControlsThis introductory course covers commercial electrical motors including components, electrical circuits, variable frequency drives, starters, and controls. Students will be introduced to electrical motor theory as well as have an opportunity for practical hands-on application of troubleshooting using schematic and diagrams.
PLC System Controls, Troubleshooting, and SensorsThis course is based on troubleshooting circuits that include PLC’s and variable speed drives with multiple inputs and outputs allowing the student to read and understand complex circuit drawings.
Variable Speed Frequency DrivesThis course is designed to guide and assist technicians in gaining an understanding of setting up, operating, and troubleshooting variable speed drives through lecture and hands-on training. Students will identify basic features and setup procedures for most drives, troubleshoot fault codes associated with motor circuits, and understand input drive methods 0-10 volts and 4-20 milliamps.
