​TRAD8910 - Electrical Technology Program - Journeyworker Electrician

​Course Description
The Electrical Technology Program – Journeyworker Electrician provides participants with the academic coursework required by Hawaii Revised Statute HRS 448E for journey worker electrical apprentices.  Participants gain foundational skills in applied math and electrical safety as well as the required subjects in AC/DC theory, motors and motor control, NEC, and transformers. This program fulfills Requirements of HRS 448E, 240 hour electrical academic coursework.

Learner Outcomes
Upon succesful 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
  • 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 conductorsRelate 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
  • Apply the theory of magnetic fields and introduction to illustrate the principles of transformer operation
  • Evaluate the specifications of a transformer to determine the physical makeup
  • Diagram and differentiate single phase and three phase transformer connectivity
  • Evaluate the effect that harmonics have on a transformer’s effectiveness.
Prerequisites
Must pass the TABE Math Assessment with a 9th grade level or higher. Testing takes about an hour and can be taken Monday - Thursday between 8am and 2pm. Please bring a photo ID.
