Description

Electric power symbolsThe Electric Power Principles course provides students with entry-level principles and applications of electricity. During the course, participants are provided opportunities to conduct hands-on exercises utilizing TEEX Electrical Component props wired in specific configurations to become more familiar with electrical meters. During these scenarios, guidance is provided by training personnel to ensure the proper application of formulas is being used when verifying findings. Upon completion of the course, participants will have an understanding of electrical circuits, components, and their applications to industrial and utility equipment.

Prerequisite

There are no prerequisites for this course.

Requirements

In order to fully participate in all field exercises, participants are required to have the following equipment; rubber gloves (Class 0) and safety glasses.
