Este curso es para estudiantes interesados en el cableado eléctrico residencial, ofreciendo los conocimientos y habilidades necesarias para convertirse en un electricista o siguiendo otros medios de la profesión en el sector eléctrico. Los estudiantes aprenderán y practicarán la teoría de circuitos eléctricos, la ley de Ohm, corriente directa y continua, circuitos en serie y paralelo, el uso de herramientas y equipos eléctricos, mantenimiento preventivo y solución de problemas, componentes y símbolos eléctricos, sistemas de distribución, el uso del NEC (Código Eléctrico National), y lectura de planos eléctricos. Instrucciones escritas en técnicas de cableado estandarizados, métodos, y materiales se llevarán a cabo con la supervisión de un instructor en un laboratorio equipado para simular las condiciones reales. También se incluirá una revisión introductoria del examen de Contratista Eléctrico de Carolina del Norte (Examen Especial Restringido: Familia Sencilla - vivienda independiente residencial (SP-SFD)). Los estudiantes deben traer sus propias herramientas, materiales y usar ropa, guantes, zapatos y lentes de seguridad. This class is taught in Spanish. Esta clase se enseña en espanol.

Outline of Instruction
  1. Orientation to the electrical trade
    Describe the apprenticeship/training process for electricians and various career paths/opportunities one might follow in the electrical trade. State the tasks typically performed by an electrician and explain the responsibilities and aptitudes of an electrician, introduction to the basic math, conversions, and use of the calculator.

    Electrical theory one
    Offers a general introduction to the electrical concepts, electronic configuration of elements, conductors, insulators, and semiconductors. Introduction to voltage, current, resistance, and electromotive force. Introduces resistors, resistance, and conductance. Resistors in series, parallel, and series-parallel.

    Electrical theory two
    Ohm’s law applied to DC series circuits, and Kirchhoff's law, circuit analysis, electric power equations. DC circuit analysis, introduction to capacitance and capacitors.

    Electrical theory three
    Introduction to inductance and inductors, Analysis of resistive, capacitive and inductive circuits, to AC theory, introduction to transformers, and power distribution systems. Introduction to basic AC electric circuits, conductors, wire, cable types, switches, and protective devices.

    Electrical test equipment continuation and hands focuses on proper selection, inspection, use, and maintenance of common electrical test equipment. Allows trainees to practice using many of the instruments while learning the appropriate test procedures and safety rules.

    Introduction to the national electrical code® and hands on
    Provides a navigational road map for using the NEC®, introduces the layout of the NEC® and the types of information found within the code book, allows trainees to practice finding information using an easy-to-follow procedure, types of loads in residential electric circuits.

    Device boxes: describe the different types of nonmetallic and metallic boxes, identify the appropriate box type and size for a given application, select and demonstrate the appropriate method for mounting a given box.

    Conductors: focuses on the types and applications of conductors and covers proper wiring techniques, stresses the appropriate NEC® requirements.

    Wiring: residential electric circuits, covers the electrical devices and wiring techniques common to residential construction and maintenance, allows trainees to practice making service calculations, stresses the appropriate NEC® requirements.

    Wiring: introduction to different types of schematics, electric diagrams, and wiring diagrams, and ladder diagrams, to wiring panel board, receptacles, switches, boxes, cables, and loads, to 3-way and 4-way, to smoke and fire detectors, to conduits and raceways.

    Door bell system, real power, apparent power, reactive power, and energy calculations, sizing conductors and overcurrent protection devices, introduction to switches with pilot light, to fluorescent lights.

    NOTE: Instructors may change the course schedule to better serve the students in the class.
