Fundamentals of Electricity - DC Badge Details


Decrease production downtime, improve efficiency and increase output – All hinges on understand electricity and how to work with it safely. These industry recognized certifications have been specifically developed to give students the knowledge and skills required to enable them to work safely and effectively with electricity. The lab components of the training offer the student the opportunity to build, test and troubleshoot DC circuits and examine the operating voltages and currents related to proper circuit operation. Technicians will use various instruments to make circuit measurements and calculations.


  • Explain the working principles of an electrical circuit.
