Electrical 1 & 2 Training Courses - Powertrain Training
Posted to Industry Events Forum on 2/8/2021

* Courses conducted in compliance of CDC Operational Considerations*

Electrical 1 Training Course - February 23 & 24, 2021 ------------------------------------------------------------ Hands-on and classroom course instruction 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.

​This two-day course provides the technician with the understanding of electrical principles and practices that are utilized while performing a driveability diagnosis. Ohm's Law is analyzed as well as the theory of DC current. Discussion includes the operation of series and parallel circuits. By using electrical trainers, technicians are provided the opportunity to learn of the features of a multimeter (DVOM) and layout of electrical circuits. Technicians are provided access to vehicles for a practical understanding of 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 will use worksheets to assemble circuits which include relays and circuit breakers.

Course Objective: 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.​

Course Fee: $580.00

Electrical 2 Training Course - February 25 & 26, 2021 ----------------------------------------------------------- Basic electrical and electronic fundamentals were covered in the Electrical 1 Training Course. 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 of variable resistors, 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 as hands-on training.

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 and 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 and 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.

Hands-on exercises will be conducted on electrical/electronic training boards and on various vehicles.

Multimeters will be available for use, but technicians are encouraged to bring their own.
