To be proficient as an Electrical Service Technician one should have the skills to accurately diagnose a problem and recommend an effective solution, as well as perform the tasks necessary to correct the problem. Several disciplines are required to perfect this skill, most of which fall under an umbrella called “Troubleshooting”.

This 4-part course covers the following subjects:

  • Basic electrical theory including OHM’s law.
  • Schematic and blueprint reading.
  • Using a multi-meter to determine expected and unexpected readings
  • Analyzing the results of your examination to determine a corrective measure.
  • Communicating your intentions to a nonprofessional using common terminology.
  • Adding value, upgrading systems, and leaving a code compliant installation behind.

This course will provide you with the skills and confidence to gain the trust of your customers while also earning their repeat business and referrals.

The ideal participant in this course would be current and new Electrical Service Technicians and Apprentices seeking to enhance or improve their skills, gain confidence in their abilities, and earn a greater customer base through high value referrals.

Students will need to bring their hand tools and multimeter to lab.
