Electrical Upskilling

This course aims to provide each student will a better understanding of common electrical practises. Once a student has completed the course, they will not only know how to work with electricity effectively, but, also, have the ability to design, wire and troubleshoot an electrical control panel.

Course Overview

This course looks at:

  • Electrical safety
  • Basic electrical principles
  • The use of test equipment
  • Reading electrical schematic diagrams
  • Designing and constructing relay control circuit
  • Trouble shooting control panels

The Assessment:

There will be a practical exercise at the end of the course that will be monitored and graded on each aspect of the assessment. Each student will be given a specification for a relay logic control panel. They must design and construct a circuit that meets the specification. Once each student completes this task, it will be checked, then a fault will be implemented within the panel. Each student must then troubleshoot and repair the fault.
