Course description

Hands-on Basic Electricity for the Non-Electrician

This essential two-day Basic Electricity training course – the most popular in our catalog – provides a foundational understanding of how electricity works in commercial and industrial settings. It includes hands-on electrical skills improvement and is designed to train maintenance technicians and other non-electrical personnel working in industrial plants and commercial buildings. It is also a great refresher course for experienced electricians and engineers. In this course, students are immersed in practical, real world examples that illustrate how electricity is distributed and used in their plants and facilities. They’ll learn how to use electrical test equipment in their everyday jobs before moving on to an in-depth discussion about major electrical components, where and how these electrical components work, and their purposes within electrical systems. The goal of this basic electrical training course is to teach students how to reduce electrical equipment downtime, improve overall efficiency and safety, and fix problems they’ve been unable to solve on their own. This course can also be adopted as part of a company’s regular Qualified Electrical Worker program.
