Training Courses > Basic of Electricity for PV systems  


Course Duration:   2 DAYS
Location: Lagos

Course Description: 
The training course provides a basic conceptual understanding of basic electrical concepts, including electrical measurements, basic electrical theory in a non-mathematical manner, basic electric circuits and components and an understanding of how electrical components work as basis for understanding all transmission, distribution and applications.

The training course also provides a basis for understanding electrical safety concepts. The course is practical oriented and focus on providing a real understanding of the essentials concepts.

Percentage Practical: 75%

Training Equipment: Labvolt, IKS, Edibon Systems and Miscellaneous electrical  Equipment with a maximum of 220VAC and 24VDC

Pre-requisites: None

Target Audience: Non technical personnel, technician of all fields, graduate and under graduate needing a refresher in basic electrical concepts.

Maximum Class size:  15 students for in-house, and 25 for on site arrangement.
