Basic Electrical Concepts

Course Number: EMS-100

After completing this course, you should be able to:

• Calculate equivalent resistance of series and parallel resistive circuits

• Describe the construction and operation of simple AG generator

In this course, you will learn how to identify the types of electrical energy and explain the characteristics of current, voltage and resistance. 

You will also identify the composition of an atom and it's relation to electrical charge by learning about Kirkhoff's Current Law and Kirchhoff's Voltage Law.This course prepares you to more clearly understand key terms and concepts for communicating with other professionals on these types of projects.
