Understanding Electricity and Electrical Components (ECLB# 0801567) - satisfies 7 hours technical (7 credit hours)
This 7 hour course introduces basic electrical concepts for those who wish to obtain a basic understanding of electricity before taking more advanced courses in electrical applications.  The course covers DC and AC electrical theory, with an emphasis on concepts that are particularly useful for understanding the many codes and standards that apply to the design and installation of various electrical systems.  It also explains the purposes, characteristics and operation of wire, fuses, circuit breakers, disconnects, capacitors, inductors, safety devices, transformers and surge protection.  The course provides numerous examples of calculating important quantities such as voltage drop, wire size, transformer size and fuse or circuit breaker size.
Roger Messenger

Upon completion of the course, the student should be familiar with

  • The concepts of electrical charge, current, voltage, power and energy
  • Basic DC electrical laws and concepts including Ohm’s law, Kirchhoff’s laws, series and parallel circuits
  • Common methods of electricity production
  • Basic AC electrical laws and concepts, including single phase and 3-phase power systems, capacitance and inductance, current and voltage phase relationships, power and power factor, distribution systems and harmonics
  • Basic electrical components and their characteristics, including wire, overcurrent protection, disconnects, safety devices, transformers and surge protection.
This course has been approved for credit by the ECLB.
This course will satisfy the 7 hour Technical requirement for Florida ECLB Contractors.
