This training course explains the principles of electrical engineering in a simple and easy to grasp format. This training course will cover all disciplines of electrical engineering including alternating current systems, direct current systems, magnetism, power equipment, switchgear, and protective equipment without relying on complex mathematics.


This course is a MUST for any individual seeking an in-depth knowledge of all the principles, and practices of electrical engineering as well as electrical equipment or an electrical engineer who would like to refresh and enhance their understanding of electrical equipment. This course will be taught in an easy to understand manner by demonstrating practical examples of applied electrical engineering through illustrated case studies.

This training course will cover how electrical equipment operates, the latest maintenance techniques, and provides guidelines and rules that ensure the successful operation of this equipment. The delegates will learn how to select and size all electrical equipment. They will also learn how to specify the main maintenance activities required for all electrical equipment.
