Course Aims

The course focuses on developing theoretical understanding through practical application and is very much a ‘hands-on’ style of delivery. Working with circuit boards operating from a safe voltage supply, learning through trial and error is encouraged, and working as part of a team helps to embed the basic principles covered in the course.

  • Electricity – Legislation and Dangers
  • Fault protection and the Role of Protective Devices
  • Motors and Control Circuits
  • Programmable Logic Control
  • Safe Isolation of Supplies
  • Single and Three Phase Supplies
  • Test Instruments
