This is our second foundation electrical course which can help you on the path to becoming a qualified electrician or domestic electrical installer. It will help you understand the science behind the practical skills and is a very good way to gain a quick overview of some of the key principles.
The main objective of this module is to give you the foundation knowledge of science and electrical fundamentals to understand how and why an electrical system works.
This is essential when considering progression onto the City & Guilds 2391-52 Testing and Periodic Inspection, Solar PV installation, Contractor short electrical courses and into the lucrative opportunities of commercial electrical installations where a deeper understanding is required.
Fundamental Electrical Science Technology for Installation Work
Why take this course?
This science theory workshop gives you the foundation knowledge to fully understand how and why basic electrical systems work. This knowledge is essential for those considering progressing onto more advanced electrical courses.
This theory workshop explains the science of electro technology and answers such questions as; What is electricity? How circuit breakers work? What do transformers do? From voltage to Ohm's law; this course includes interesting and essential information for the electrical contractor. This course also forms part of the IET Centre of Excellence due to the quality of our training provision.
Is this course right for me?
This course package is suitable for anyone who wants to progress beyond the basic domestic installer courses and continue onto more advanced electrical contractor courses where a deeper knowledge of the science is required.
Principles of Electrotechnology Course Content:
Fundamentals of electricity
Electron theory including atomic elements and free electrons
Charge and attraction
Conductors, Insulators and Semiconductors
Electrical symbols and mathematical expressions.
Simple electrical circuit theory:
Using digital multimeters to measure resistance, voltage and current
Practical workshop including the building a simple electrical circuits calculating the expected value of current and measuring the actual resistance, voltage and current
DC series circuits, this follows the theory then practical route
DC parallel circuits, again this follows the theory then practical route reinforcing the use of previously learnt techniques.
DC series – parallel circuits, following the same pattern as the previous day
Power, solving power problems using power formulae
Electromagnetism and electromagnets.
Basic AC Theory:
Introduction to AC, sine waves, single and 3 phase supplies
Voltage and current, peak, instantaneous and RMS values
Relationship between line and phase voltage in a 3 phase system
Transformer theory, calculation and practical
Capacitance theory, calculation and practical
Inductance theory, calculation and practical
Impedance theory, and calculation of circuit impedance.
City & Guilds Accreditation - C&G 4141-02
This course is now fully accredited by City & Guilds. The official course title for this course is "Fundamental Electrical Science and Technology for Installation Work" with course code 4141-02. Students will sit a short exam on the last day of their course.
Please note that you must bring photographic ID such as a passport or driving license with you in order to sit the assessments on this course.
What is the purpose for the 4141-02?
The main objective of this module is to give you the foundation knowledge of science and electrical fundamentals to fully understand how and why an electrical system works.
Do i get a recognised qualification?
Yes indeed this is a recognised City & Guilds qualification. On passing this course you will be awarded a Level 3 C&G certificate in “Fundamental Electrical Science and Technology for Installation Work”. The qualification is approved and certificated by City & Guilds who are the UK’s leading provider of vocational qualifications. This qualification is currently only available in Trade Skills 4U centres and is therefore not currently listed on the City & Guilds website or OFQAL. However, we can make this available to other high quality training providers with our approval. If you are a centre interested in delivering this qualification, please contact us directly.
London Gatwick, South East
Our head office centres redefine standards in training provision with 7,500 square metres of bright and spacious teaching areas. It’s a world away from the drafty warehouses that some competitors use! It is perfectly placed to deliver electrical course to students from Sussex, Surrey, Kent, London and all over the South East.
On site or In House at Your Premises
We can can come to you for certain courses. If you have suitable facilities why not take the stress out of training a group of students by arranging for us to train at your own premises. You will still receive the absolute best training possible. For more information call 01293 529777 now to see if we can help.
