This Course covers the Basics of Electricity and is designed to provide a basic understanding of electric principles and to prepare you for subsequent courses related to electrical work.
Upon completion of the Basics of Electricity you will be able to:
Explain the difference between conductors and Insulators
Use Ohm’s Law to calculate current, voltage and resistance
Calculate equivalent resistance for series, parallel, or series-parallel circuits
Calculate voltage drop across a resistance
Calculate power give other basic values
Identify factors that determine the strength and polarity of a current-carrying coil’s magnetic field
Determine peak, instantaneous, and effective values of an AC sine wave
Calculate primary and secondary volatages of single phase and three-phase transformers
Calculate kVA of a transformer

This practical course covers all the commonly used domestic wiring circuits in use today and aims to make you familiar with the application and use of different types of circuit, along with practical construction, inspection and testing of the circuits built. The topics that are covered include the following and are put across in a relaxed way, with trainee interaction encouraged from the outset of the course.

A 3 day short course aimed at anyone involved in the design, construction and inspection and testing of electrical systems, also a nationally recognized ‘must have’ qualification for companies seeking to recruit electricians.
This course is intended to introduce the candidate to a working knowledge of the Wiring Regulations along with a brief overview of the Electricity at Work Regulations covering their statutory duties.

Learn how to test portable electrical appliances with a qualification in Electrical Equipment Maintenance and Testing. Aimed at practicing electricians this qualification will help and progress individuals within the Electrotechnical industry.
A qualification in Electrical Equipment Maintenance and Testing is for practising electricians who want to progress in their career or move on to further study.

A short course aimed at newcomers to inspection and testing of electrical installations, and also the logical route towards 2391-50, 2391-51, or 2391-52.
City and Guilds Certification is achieved on successful completion of both the practical assessment and PC based examination.

A ½ day short course aimed at anyone involved in electrical installations in dwellings. The Government approved Document P (electrical safety) came into effect on the 1st January 2005. For the first time the mainstream work of domestic electrical installers became subject to the requirements and procedures associated with Building Control.
Domestic Electrical installers need to appreciate the requirements that apply to building work they carry out in connection with their electrical work, and they need to understand the way that Building Control works and the procedures that need to be followed. This is not a requirement for working in Scotland but it is for England so we provide the option of completing the Total Electrical 20 course in Stirling without 2393-10

Course Reviews

I was impressed with the way the course was delivered. My tutor took time to explain all the salient points related to Electrical Engineering. Being my first time to attempt an electrical engineering course , I can confess that I have never been at easy with the way course was delivered. I really enjoyed the course. The tutors provided sufficient materials for the course, which made my life easier.
