Electrical

This suite of courses starts with concepts of voltage, currents and resistance, and moves through conductors, semi-conductors and insulators to electromotive force production and electromagnetic theory. Choose just the beginning or work through all three depending on your needs.

Explain the properties of conductors, insulators, and semiconductors and their effect on electrical circuits

This course covers knowledge of the properties of conductors, insulators, and semiconductors and the concepts of voltage, current, and resistance in electrical circuits, which underpins all technical careers in the electrical and electronic industries.

Upon completion, learners will be able to:

  • demonstrate knowledge of electrical conductors, insulators, and semiconductors;
  • demonstrate knowledge of resistance, resistivity and resistors;
  • demonstrate knowledge of resistor characteristics;
  • compare calculated with measured values in resistive circuits;
  • demonstrate knowledge of electrical power and energy;
  • analyse resistive circuits.
