1 Day Introduction to Electrical/Electronics

This course is designed to introduce YOU to the world of Electrical/Electronics at a basic level. Be it for the first time or as a refresher course, we introduce typical industry applications, key aspects of Health and Safety and the building blocks that make up a basic circuit.

We look at the function of the component part from the power supply through to the work end of a basic circuit, whilst being extremely conscious of just how dangerous this technology could be if staff involved have not received adequate training.

This Introductory Level Course together with the Stage 1 Hydraulics course at a later date, can lead you to the Stage 1 Electrical/Electronics.

The NFPC has possibly the best practical facilities in Europe and during this one day course your learning process will be supported by hands-on experience, using real world technology.

The course has a practical content, giving you the opportunity to build and operate a working circuit from a simple circuit diagram.
