Basic Electricity

This is an introductory course to basic AC/DC electricity. A study of ohms law, watts law and metric prefixes will provide the participant the basic skills to perform various series, parallel, and combination circuit calculations. Participants perform numerous example problems and learn what happens to voltage, current, resistance, power, capacitance, and inductance in different circuit designs.
