Basic Electrical Troubleshooting

COURSE OVERVIEW

Effectively troubleshooting electrical systems is an essential skill for any technician responsible for maintenance in an industrial, commercial or utility facility. The inexperienced troubleshooter may “chase the voltage” or mistake symptoms for problems – which leads to replacing the same parts repeatedly. Technicians who understand effective electrical troubleshooting techniques can save their organization money by properly identifying faulty components and preventing accidents and equipment damage that can occur from failures. Utilizing safe, effective troubleshooting techniques also ensures compliance with OSHA 1910.333(a)(1) which covers the requirements for de-energized work.

This hands-on course is intended for electricians and technicians responsible for troubleshooting electrical system problems and supervisors responsible for overseeing troubleshooting electrical system problems. The class participant should have basic knowledge of AC/DC electricity.
