Basic Electricity & Electronics (Course# 201) has been pre-approved for 10 TCHs (1.0 IACET CEUs) of operator certification renewal continuing education training for both drinking water and wastewater operators by operator certification boards in multiple states including the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (NHDES) Wastewater Certification Committee and the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (NHDES) Drinking Water and Ground Water Bureau.
This course covers how to identify components and correct procedures, describe functions and purpose, and troubleshoot as it relates to a basic, non-mathematical approach to principles of electricity; electron theory; static electricity; electrons in motion; magnetism. Basic methods of measuring current, voltage, and resistance. Circuit components: conductors, insulators, resistors, capacitors. Ohm’s Law calculations for DC and AC circuits.
At the completion of this course the student will be able to:
- Identify a non-mathematical approach to principles of electricity
- Describe electron theory, static electricity, electrons in motion, and magnetism
- Recognize basic methods of measuring current, voltage, and resistance
- Solve circuit problems using Ohm’s law calculations for DC and AC circuits
- Demonstrate this knowledge on a multiple choice final exam
Independent study course lessons and exercises are contained in the “Basic Electricity & Electronics Workbook” which is mailed to students upon registration for the course. SkillWorks provides 24/7 learning support by phone for registered students.
Students earn an official course certificate of completion for 10 training contact hours (1.0 IACET CEUs) of continuing education training by passing the final exam with a score of 70% or better.
