(Prerequisites: None) (Co-requisite: None)Introduces the theory and application of varying sine wave voltages and current. Topics include: magnetism, AC wave generation, AC test equipment, inductance, capacitance, and basic transformers. A $10 fee is associated with this course due to the increased cost of copper and electrical components.
(Prerequisites: Provisional admission) Introduces electrical symbols and their use in construction blueprints, electrical schematics, and diagrams. Topics include: electrical symbols, component identification, print reading and scales and measurement.
(Prerequisites: None) (Co-requisites: None) This course introduces commercial wiring practices and procedures. Topics include: industrial safety procedures, the National Electrical Code, commercial load calculations, three-phase power systems, and fundamentals of AC motor control.
(Prerequisites: None) (Co-Requisites: None) This course is a continuation of the study in commercial wiring practices and procedures. Topics include: transformer connections, an introduction to low voltage systems, conduit design and installation practices, and system design concepts. A $15 fee is associated with this course due to the increased cost of electrical conduit and connectors.
(Prerequisite: None) (Co-requisite: None) Introduces direct current (DC) concepts and applications. Topics include: electrical principles and laws; batteries; DC test equipment; series, parallel, and simple combination circuits; and laboratory procedures and safety practices. A $10 fee is associated with this course due to the increased cost of copper and electrical components.
