Hands-On Electrical Troubleshooting I

This intensive one-day hands-on course covers the troubleshooting and repair of control circuits and components. The novice as well as the experienced electrician will learn how to safely and efficiently build, troubleshoot, and repair motor control circuits using the hands-on troubleshooting methods. Attendees will build circuits on realistic training panels that contain a motor starter, relays, terminal strips, push buttons, selector switches, and limit switches. After the circuits are built, the instructor will introduce a realistic fault into the circuit. With the instructor’s help, you will be asked to repair the faulty circuit by using your multimeter and the techniques learned earlier in the day.

This course is hands-on and practical in its approach to troubleshooting. The examples completed in this course are shown to be applicable to practices in any facility. To insure the quality of this program, this course has limited seating.
