E1-Electric I for Transit SC-EL-1600-I
Electrical System Diagnosis for Transit
Prerequisites: DVOM Course (preferred), or thorough understanding of meters or an equivalent experience.
Course Description: Designed to improve basic electrical skills and circuit diagnosis, students will work with a Digital Volt Ohm Meter (DVOM) in real circuit conditions. The class is a combination of lecture and lab that will prepare students for advanced electrical circuits, schematic reading and circuit troubleshooting.
Course Benefits: This course is specifically designed to prepare students for advanced electrical circuits, schematic reading and circuit troubleshooting. Students will gain knowledge about series and parallel circuit construction, and voltage drop techniques and problem solving skills needed for proper diagnosis and repair of alternatively fueled vehicles.
What you will learn: Each course day is defined by the following relevant learning topics.
- Refresh activities
- Schematic symbols
- General overview of schematics
- Voltage drop
- Basic circuits
- Series circuits
- Parallel circuits
- Series parallel circuits
- Frequency/duty cycle
- Temp sensors/coolant
- Ignition components
