In this modern world, we are surrounded by and dependent on electrical technologies. Be it the home appliances or the industrial machines, one must have the basic fundamental knowledge of electricity. Especially, how it generates, its flow, and most importantly, knowledge of electrical safety is vital.
This Basic Electricity Course - CPD Accredited course is designed thoughtfully to provide you with the fundamentals of electricity, in a non-mathematical approach and in the most comprehensible manner. The course covers the Basic Terminology and Concepts regarding different forms of electricity, their source, a comprehensive illustration of Static and Current electricity, Electromagnetism, Voltage, Power, and Electric Charge. It also discusses some fundamental laws and principles for you to understand the nature of electricity better.
We are offering this course to both part-time and full-time students, as it is designed to suit both groups to learn at their own pace. To assist you with the process, our experienced tutors are available to support you 24/7.
Please note that this online course & certification does not train you to be a professional electrician or expert enough to be fixing/tweaking with electric/electronic devices.
