Overview

In modern times we electric appliances has a huge role. They are an inseparable part of the modern day lifestyle. They are in our homes schools and industries almost everywhere. Electric Appliances need a constant supply of to operate. This is only possible to supply the appliances with unidirectional steady flow of electricity.

Our Fundamentals of Electricity & DC Circuit course introduces the fundamental concepts of electrical direct current circuits, which form the basis to all electrical/electronic systems. The course has been thoughtfully designed to provide all the fundamentals you need to know regarding DC circuits with illustrations and example.

After finishing this course you will have a very clear idea about DC circuits, why they are used and how to work with them.

Highlights of the Fundamentals of Electricity & DC Circuit course:

  • Develop your understanding of basic electric properties and nature of electricity.
  • Learn the properties of conductors and insulators

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At reed.co.uk courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on reed.co.uk, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
