This 40 hour course provides a review of motor control circuits with emphasis on AC and DC motor control circuits, and ladder logic circuits where electrical relay logic is used to control equipment both of which are used in industry and facility applications. In addition it will familiarize the participant with the operation of programmable logic controllers (PLC's) and how they function and how they are used.
There are no prerequisites for this course.
Class attendance is an essential part of the education process and participants in TEEX courses are expected to attend all class sessions and field exercises. This course requires participants to attend a minimum of 80% of the class hours as a component of successful course completion. During the course, your instructor will review any additional attendance requirements, for example a field exercise that cannot be missed.
A basic knowledge of electricity is presumed.
