COURSES OFFERED

Industrial Maintenance Electrical principles/lab (IMT110/111)

Credit:  1                                                             

Grade Level:  9-12

This course is the prerequisite for ALL Industrial Maintenance classes. 

This course introduces the theory of electricity and magnetism and the relationship of voltage, current, resistance, and power in electrical circuits. The course is designed to develop an understanding of alternating and direct current fundamentals. Students will apply formulas to analyze the operation of AC and DC circuits.  The basic AC and DC lab course allows the student to verify basic theory by creating measurements and working AC and DC circuits. Various types of circuits are constructed and their parameters measured. The use of test equipment, safety and troubleshooting are stressed.
