Industrial Electricity

Industrial Electricity demystifies the study of electricity.  Studies indicate 80% of the faults associated with electrical control systems involve either devices or field wiring. The other 20% faults can be quickly found using software tools that usually remain hidden to all but the most experienced troubleshooting professional.  Industrial Electricity provides you with real world training for your real world needs.  You will benefit from this class as long as you have an interest in learning to troubleshoot and repair electrical apparatus.

While Covid social distancing requirements are in place, class size is limited to 11 registered participants.   A wait list will be maintained in case of drops, or Covid requirements are lifted.
