NCTS Electrical With Troubleshooting Outline
This forty (40) hour training course covers AC (Alternating Current) and DC (Direct Current) theory and fundamentals. The student will first gain an understanding of the concepts of electrical schematics, components, voltage, current and resistance. These concepts will be applied through Ohm’s Law to basic circuit design and analysis. Power, magnetism and DC generation will then be introduced to complete the theories of DC applications.
Upon completion of this module the trainees will have an understanding of the basics of AC (Alternating Current) and DC (Direct Current) theory and an understanding of electrical diagrams and associated electrical components.
Duration: 40 Hours
