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.

Ideal If:

This course is ideal for anyone with minimal experience/ knowledge within electrical engineering who would like to gain and/or improve their skills.

You'll Learn:

The course starts at the electrical basics and works up to designing and wiring circuits within electrical control panels.

You'll Love:

The amount of hands-on experience you will gain by using industrial standard equipment.

You'll Progress:

This is a standalone industrial upskilling course. You will receive a SERC accredited certificate on completion of a practical assessment.

You'll Need:

There are no prerequisites for this course, however previous engineering experience will be helpful.
