This course can help homes and businesses avoid the disastrous consequences of a power outage and ensure that facilities continue to operate even when there is no power.

Solar Panel

If you are interested in learning more about the world’s fastest growing form of power generation, solar power, this certificate is for you.

With the ever-changing landscape of power generation, the need for renewable energy has never been greater. Stay in the forefront of this growing need and learn how solar energy can have a positive impact at home or at work by attending this Solar Photovoltaic Fundamentals and Maintenance certification.

This training will introduce you to the solar industry and its many applications. You will learn the fundamentals of solar and photovoltaics, system size and configuration, as well as system maintenance and troubleshooting. If you are new to the solar industry or need to learn how to maintain an existing system, this program is for you.

The Photovoltaic Solar Power Fundamentals & Maintenance certification emphasizes electrical basics to make sure our students have a strong foundation in electrical properties. 

We’ll examine electrical fundamentals before moving on to the basics of solar power and solar power systems.

Smoke/Carbon Detectors

When someone tells you that an inexpensive appliance could save your life, it’s smart to listen to him. Unfortunately, many people ignore this wise counsel by failing to install smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors in their homes.

Both of these devices save lives, although they do so in different ways. Smoke detectors alert people to the presence of smoke and possibly fire in their home.

Carbon monoxide detectors alert to dangerous levels of carbon monoxide gas. Carbon monoxide can kill a person or leave then with permanent respiratory and brain damage.

A number of household appliances emit carbon monoxide, including gas stoves or ovens, water heaters and space heaters. Because its symptoms are similar to the flu (nausea, headache, dizziness, light-headedness, confusion), the initial stages of carbon monoxide poisoning are difficult to recognize and often overlooked.

Why They Matter

Sometimes people skip the smoke alarm because they feel the presence of fire is obvious. Even if the fire is burning inside the walls or on a different floor of the house, eventually you will smell the smoke or see the flames. This claim is true, but those who make it fail to realize that fire victims usually die from smoke inhalation rather than from the heat or flames. If a person is sleeping when a fire starts, he could die of smoke inhalation without ever realizing there is a fire.

Carbon monoxide kills in much the same way but is impossible to detect without a detector. In the early stages, carbon monoxide exposure will make you dizzy, nauseous, short of breath, weak and confused.

Your vision may blur and you will ultimately lose consciousness. These symptoms occur because as you inhale it, carbon monoxide replaces the oxygen in your blood, delivering a dangerous chemical to your cells rather than oxygen. Unlike fire, which may give you some warning, carbon monoxide is odorless, colorless and tasteless. You won’t see it coming.

How They Work

Smoke alarms detect smoke in two ways. One method, called photoelectric detection, uses a light sensor that triggers an alarm when smoke particles break the light beam. Other detectors, known as ionization detectors, pass a small electrical current from one diode to another. These alarms sound when smoke particles interrupt this electrical current. Some newer smoke alarms also detect heat.

Carbon monoxide detectors work in one of three ways. Biomimetic sensors contain a gel that changes color when it absorbs carbon monoxide. The detector monitors the color of this gel and sounds the alarm when it changes. Other detectors use a metal oxide semiconductor. This semiconductor is similar to the chips on an electronic circuit board and contains silica, which is sensitive to the presence of carbon monoxide. When it detects the gas, it reduces the amount of current flowing through the detector to trigger the alarm. The final option is an electrochemical sensor. In these detectors, small electrodes bathe in a chemical solution that changes when exposed to carbon monoxide, sounding the alarm when they sense this change.

What They Need

Both smoke and carbon monoxide alarms need electricity to operate. Some units operate independently of your home’s electricity and rely on a battery. These detectors work only when they have a good battery. If you opt for this type of detector, hold down the test button once a month to make sure the unit is still working. Change the batteries once a year or use a lithium-ion battery that needs changed only once every five years. If you remove a pesky smoke alarm battery while cooking, you must remember to put it back promptly.

Some units plug into an electrical outlet or get wired directly into your home. These detectors often have a battery backup that keeps them working when the power goes out. Though a bit trickier to install, hardwired detectors are generally more forgiving since you don’t have to remember to maintain them as often as you do battery powered units. If you are having smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors hardwired into your home, consider wiring them together so when one goes off they all go off.

Residential Blueprints

Learn how to read Residential and Commercial Electrical blueprints. “Blueprint” is the historic name for construction documents. Electricians follow the electrical blue print and coordinate between all the other contractors. 

This Electrical Blueprint Reading certificate is taught by a licensed Teacher. Starting at the very beginning, you will learn about drawing types, scale and the interrelationships between drawings and how Electrical project information is conveyed in a set of construction documents.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand all the symbols and legends of Electrical drawings. 
  • Analyze Electrical drawings and see how scale is presented throughout a set of Construction Documents.
  • Evaluate the similarities between all sets of blueprint construction documents submitted for building permits.
  • Recognize the need for consistency in presenting information in electrical blueprint reading course.

Commercial Electricity

If you are looking to become an Electrician but feel that your initial access to work will be predominantly domestic then this package of learning is ideal.

This package works two fold as it meets the criteria of Domestic Installer scheme registration for the purposes of domestic electrical work but equally, gives you the grounding you need if you want to work in commercial electrical field.

Overcurrent & Shorts Circuit Protection

Since short circuits have such damaging impacts on an electric system, the magnitude of the expected faults currents and their impact on the components in the circuit must be understood.

The simplified analytical procedures presented in this certification will allow the user to quickly determine the expected level of fault currents in an electric system. These procedures are generally considered adequate for most applications of 600-volts or less.

OBJECTIVES

This course reviews the principles of electric systems during faulted conditions and how short circuit currents are calculated in both three-phase and single-phase systems. After taking this course you will:

  • Understand the NEC® requirements for equipment protection
  • Understand what short circuit currents are and the impact on circuits
  • Know how to calculate short circuit currents using the per-unit method
  • Know how to calculate short circuit currents in both three-phase and single-phase applications.
