This introductory course in the fundamentals of transformers is for students who are already working as or seeking employment as an electrician, and who want to meet occupational goals, continue their education, or increase their skill levels. The course covers the complete electrical design of a commercial/industrial facility inclusive of general electrical, transformer, and electrical load calculations. All design work is completed to the applicable National Electrical Code (NEC). Students study and interpret the NEC, paying particular attention to NEC requirements for grounding, as well as local ordinances and regulations that cover wiring installations and principal circuit and grounding requirements. Extensive, hands-on lab exercises reinforce these concepts.
