Through the introduction of the basic concepts of electrical theory, students will explore electrical quantities, Ohm’s Law, resistors, circuits, and measuring instruments. This program will also examine alternating current (AC) and how it produces most of the electric power used in the world. The focus is on AC circuits containing inductance and AC circuits containing capacitors, with students applying electrical laws, theorems, and formulas in practical applications.
Students will explore how electronics theory is applied in the electrical field, while learning about electronic devices commonly found in residential and commercial applications. Through classroom presentation and lab exercises, students will focus on low voltage wiring applications, such as audio, video, security, telephone, computer networking and wireless systems, in accordance with the requirements set forth by the National Electrical Code. In addition, fiber optics is also explored. Students in the program will develop skills in cable preparation, handling, installation, termination, and
testing. Through both classroom presentations and lab exercises, students learn how to plan, wire, terminate, install, connect, test, integrate and troubleshoot the systems of today’s digitally integrated systems and networks.
