Electrical Construction and Maintenance 1

Course Code CERB-602
Course Name Electrical Construction and Maintenance 1
Category Engineering Technology & Applied Science
Description Electrical Construction and Maintenance 1 focuses on general electric circuit parameters and laws.

You will learn through informative lectures reinforced by hands-on lab experiments. Course topics vary and include: basic electric circuits, AC circuits, Kirchoff's Law, Thevenin's Theorem, voltage sources, current sources, resistance, analysis of DC and class and two circuits, and power considerations.

You will also learn the use of measuring instruments such as DMM and oscilloscopes, master techniques for troubleshooting electrical equipment and gain an understanding of schematic wring diagrams.

Once you complete the Electrical Construction and Maintenance 1 course, you will be able to use electrical equipment in troubleshooting and design basic electrical systems with knowledge and understanding in:

• Electrical measuring instruments;
• AC power generation and transmission techniques;
• AC fundamentals and measurements of single-phase and poly-phase measurements;
• Voltage and current phase differences;
• Reactive components and impedance calculations.
Notes Prerequisite: Successful completion of CERB-601 Electrical Fundamentals

IMPORTANT NOTICE: For the Winter 2021 course offering, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the course will be delivered in a "Teaching at a Distance" format. "Teaching at a Distance" means you learn in a virtual classroom, in real time, with a live instructor. You will require a computer with internet access, camera and microphone.

The lab component of the course will be delivered using simulation software, which is the same as doing the task, except you are not physically getting your hands on the equipment. Students who have previously a course comprising this certificate program, using simulation software, were satisfied with their learning experience, and all or most went on to register for the next course in the series.

If you check the COVID-19 information centre at the top of the page, you will see weekly case updates. In light of this reality, a virtual classroom is the safest option for everyone involved.
