​TRAD8940 - Electrical Technology Program - Maintenance Electrician

​Course Description
The Electrical Technology Program – Industrial Electrician provides participants with the academic coursework required by Hawaii Revised Statute HRS 448E for industrial 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, 200 hour electrical academic coursework.

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 system
  • Integrate 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
Recommendations
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.
