Course description

Electrical Workshop -- Basics to Troubleshooting

Available in both virtual and in-person, instructor-led formats, this four-day Electrical Workshop Basics to Troubleshooting seminar provides an intensive electrical training experience that covers the basics of electricity all the way through troubleshooting a facility's own electrical systems.

Please note that this workshop is a special combination of two of our most popular seminars. It combines the two-day Basic Electricity for the Non-Electrician and the two-day Electrical Troubleshooting and Preventive Maintenance seminar. These seminars are offered consecutively in the same week to create a more comprehensive training opportunity.
