Introduction to Electrical Conductors, Wiring Techniques, and Schematic Reading (AIA# TCECWS) (8 credit hours/8 HSW Hours)

Various circuit components provide the majority of operating characteristics of any electrical circuit.  Conductors are the means used to tie these components together.  This course will explain the many important factors that determine the type of electrical conductor used to connect components, including the physical size of the conductor, its composition, its electrical characteristics, its weight, the cost, and the environment where the conductor will be used.  Next, the course will assist the student in learning the basic skills of proper wiring techniques by explaining the different ways to terminate and splice electrical conductors.  Various soldering techniques and the procedure to be followed when you lace wired bundles within electrical and electronic equipment will be discussed.  Lastly, the course will explain the systems used for marking cables and wires, each type of diagram you will encounter when troubleshooting, testing, repairing, or learning about circuit or system operation, and safety practices relating to working around electrical or electronic systems.

Naval Education & Training

·         The student will have knowledge of the definitions and characteristics of electrical conductors, conductor sizes, square mil, and circular mil-foot.

·         The student will have knowledge of the method for measuring wire size, the factors required in selecting proper size wire, and details regarding stranded wires and cables.

·         The student will have knowledge of the components for any splice and terminal connection and the advantage of the crimped terminal over the soldered terminal.

·         The student will have knowledge of the two types of insulation commonly used for non-insulated splices and terminal lugs, an advantage of using pre-insulated terminal lugs and the color code used for each, and the procedures for crimping terminal lugs with a hand crimp tool.  

·         The student will have knowledge of the procedures and precautions for tinning wire, the types of soldering irons and their uses, the purposes and required properties of flux, and the purpose for lacing conductors.

·         The student will have knowledge of the seven types of electrical diagrams and the functional design of each.

·         The student will have knowledge of the basic safety practices and precautions for working around electrical and electronic systems.
