Electrical I Training Course
This two day course prepares the technician with the understanding of electrical principles and practices to be performed during driveability diagnosing. Ohm’s Law is analyzed along with the theory of DC current. Discussion includes the operation of series and parallel circuits. Use of electrical trainers in the class allows the technicians to take advantage of the features of a multimeter (DVOM) and layout of electrical circuits. Technicians are also taken to a vehicle to understand the theory analyzed and used to test charging, sensor and actuator circuits. Instruction on wiring diagrams (schematics) are learned and applied on various trucks on hand. Technicians use worksheets to assemble circuits which include relays and circuit breakers.
Instruction in this course is focused towards applying basic electrical theory and use in testing circuits and components such as sensors and actuators found on vehicles with electronic control systems.
Given the electrical trainers, multimeter (DVOM) , instruction and service information, the technician will test and understand DC electrical behavior in common circuits found on Diesel engines today.
Number of days: 2
Technicians are encouraged to bring a laptop/tablet to the course for additional service information access.
Electrical 2 Training Course
Course Length: 2 days
Basic electrical and electronic fundamentals were covered in Electrical 1. Electricity was described as the movement of electrons. This course continues with the types of resistors and variable resistors such as the potentiometer. Circuits with variable resistors will be assembled and reviewed. Construction, plus their uses will be explained and showed on a vehicle. Sensors that use these variable sensors will be analyzed in wiring diagrams. Once analysis is completed, there will be assigned tasks on the vehicle. Training will continue with the introduction of semi conductors. Construction of the bipolar transistor will be viewed with the use of another semiconductor, the diode. P type, N type material will be shown, and circuits will be assembled during the course on training boards. Technicians will use the multimeter test transistors and diode properly in a circuit.
Training will include the use of wiring diagrams/schematics. Technicians will analyze power and ground distribution circuits. Use of the popular manufacture’s wiring diagrams will be quizzed in order to learn how to read a diagram properly.
There will be an introduction to labscope operation and use. Basic operation of measuring voltage and time is used to learn how to read basic DC signals. Using digital labscope will allow the technician to use this tool to diagnose issues found on vehicles today.
Exercises will be on an electrical/electronic training boards and on various vehicles.
Multimeters will be available, but technicians are encouraged to bring their own.
