the safety processes associated with handling electrical systems such as grounding and energized circuits. Students will work with dual voltage systems commonly found in HVAC/R equipment.

The foundation for control circuit wiring and high voltage wiring are discussed and students will put their knowledge to use while working with the trainers. The training material in this class includes information on multiple types of test meters and their proper use, electrical devices, control devices, and troubleshooting. A study of single phase and three phase motors round out the students’ understanding of basic electrical principles.
