Course Agenda

DISCUSSION TOPICS - DAY 1
Understanding Industrial Electricity

This seminar will provide students with a basic understanding of how electricity works in commercial and industrial settings. Starting with easily understood analogies to explain the fundamentals of electricity, students will then be quickly immersed in practical, real world examples used to illustrate how electricity is distributed and used in their own plants and facilities. Next they will learn about different types of electrical test equipment and how to use this equipment in their everyday jobs. A short introduction to electrical safety will be included before moving on to an in-depth discussion about major electrical components such as motors and transformers, where & how these components work, and their purposes within electrical systems. By the end of Day 1, students will have gained a firm understanding of how electrical systems work in their own plants and buildings.
