Event Details

 Trainer: Randy Woolery
Session I: Electrical Fundamentals
This 3-hour class is an introduction and overview to Electricity, how it works, and how it is
measured using the functions of Voltage – Amperage – Watts – Resistance. Ohms law and
its applications will assist in defining and understanding troubleshooting components. The
basics of electrical circuits, typical residential wiring, breakers, service box connections, grounding wires and cable color and insulation codes will be covered. Additional topics
include: safety, American wire gauge and amperage, OSHA, and basic techniques of
electrical troubleshooting.

Topics covered in this class will include:
  • Safety – Lock-out / Tag-out procedures
  • AWG and other common uses of the National Electrical Code
  • Wires, Cables, and insulation color coding
  • Fundamentals of Ohm’s Law and how to use it.
  • The differences between AC versus DC power
  • Differences between Series and Parallel circuits, and reading schematics
  • Basic wiring and Three way and Four way lighting switches
  • Troubleshooting typical residential circuits and electrical components
Session II: Basic Electrical Meters & Troubleshooting:
This 3-hour class is an introduction and overview of the most common types of
electrical meters and how to use them effectively in troubleshooting single
components and electrical systems. Topics include: Types of meters, electrical
safety, meter safety, voltage, current and resistance measurements and how they can
contribute to effective basic troubleshooting.

Topics covered in this class will include:
  • The differences between voltage, current and resistance
  • Identify electrical symbols
  • Determine the difference between Series and Parallel circuits
  • Recognize the most commonly used meter functions
  • Select the correct meter for the identified testing and use it safely
  • Test for voltage, current, resistance and continuity
  • Test electrical components relating to Appliances, HVAC equipment and
    common electrical circuits

(Students should bring their own multi-meter to the class)
