Complete the academic coursework required by Hawaii Revised Statute HRS 448E for journey worker electrical apprentices. Participants gain foundational skills in electrical safety, as well as applied math, AC/DC theory, motors and motor control, NEC, and transformers.
Upon successful completion the participant will:
Apply mathematical reasoning to solve technical problems
Analyze the nature of DC and AC electricity and the quantities, units and measurements associated with it
Demonstrate the identification of the abbreviations, acronyms, and symbols of DC and AC electrical components in an electrical circuit, and the function of each one
Calculate the voltage, resistance, and current for series, parallel, and series/parallel circuits for DC and AC circuits
Apply the understanding of Resistance, Inductance, and Capacitance to DC and AC circuits, and its application to Power Loads
Correlate the requirements, standards and information in the NEC to the proper installation or modification of electrical systems, circuits, equipment and conductors
Demonstrate the function and proper use of electrical tools and test instruments used in the installation, maintenance and troubleshooting of motors and motor control systems
Demonstrate and explain how AC and DC motors and their control mechanisms interact with other components in an integrated electromechanical or mechatronic system
Integrate a coordinated methodology of measurements and adjustments on motors and motor control components in an electromechanical or mechatronic system
Demonstrate how to protect motors and prevent motor failure from operating outside of their physical and/or electrical specifications
Develop a troubleshooting methodology to localize, identify and document causes of malfunctions in motor circuits, based upon the technical documentation
Students will be required to purchase textbooks and other class materials.
