To give participants a clear understanding of Electricity, its properties as relevant to plant and equipment and how Electrical Systems work in industry. This ensures participants acquire a basic competency to interact safely and effectively re electrical and plant related issues.
The different modules build competence in a structured manner allowing the participant to develop familiarity step by step and advance through each module with a level of confidence and achievement. The course is designed with theory, practical sessions and individual exercises intermixed in a manner that encourages learning.
To understand basic electricity and basic electromagnetism, key electrical principles and power calculations. Wire-up, test and operate a range of different electrical circuits using the work board, toolbox and multimeter provided. Understand basic electrical safety and how to deal with personal safety, testing and safety issues on site.
