​TRAD8920 - Electrical Technology Program - Industrial Electrician

​Learner Outcomes
Upon successful completion the participant will:
  • Apply mathematical reasoning to solve technical problems
  • Analyze the nature of DC and AC electricity and the quantities, units and measurements associated with it
  • Demonstrate the identification of the abbreviations, acronyms, and symbols of DC and AC electrical components in an electrical circuit, and the function of each one
  • Calculate the voltage, resistance, and current for series, parallel, and series/parallel circuits for DC and AC circuits
  • Apply the understanding of Resistance, Inductance, and Capacitance to DC and AC circuits, and its application to Power Loads
  • Correlate the requirements, standards and information in the NEC to the proper installation or modification of electrical systems, circuits, equipment and conductors
  • Relate the terminology defined in NEC 2011 Article 250 to applicable electrical installations of systems, circuits, equipment, and conductors
  • Evaluate the requirements for proper grounding and bonding of electrical systems, circuits, equipment and conductors based upon the requirements of NEC 2011
  • Identify proper safety rules and procedures while working on electromechanical or mechatronic systems
  • Demonstrate the function and proper use of electrical tools and test instruments used in the installation, maintenance and troubleshooting of motors and motor control systems
  • Identify common motor control components and their symbols
  • Demonstrate and explain how AC and DC motors and their control mechanisms interact with other components in an integrated electromechanical or mechatronic systemIntegrate a coordinated methodology of measurements and adjustments on motors and motor control components in an electromechanical or mechatronic system
  • Demonstrate how to protect motors and prevent motor failure from operating outside of their physical and/or electrical specifications
  • Develop a troubleshooting methodology to localize, identify and document causes of malfunctions in motor circuits, based upon the technical documentation
  • Evaluate the specifications of a transformer to determine the physical makeup
  • Evaluate the effect that harmonics have on a transformer’s effectiveness
  • Correlate transformer type to their purpose, function, and application
Prerequisites
Completion of the TABE Math Assessment with a 9th grade level or higher is required in order to enroll. Testing can be taken Monday - Thursday between 9am - 2pm. Please bring a photo ID and allow at least 1 hour for the test. Test results will be given the next business day after 12pm.
