The Basic Electricity course introduces you to the basic nature and functionality of electricity. You will explore the basic properties of electrical circuit, voltage, current, resistance and power. In addition, you will learn to utilize Ohm’s Law to determine electrical properties in a series and parallel circuits and apply Watt’s Law to simple circuits. The course is both online and self-paced.
Our course covers topics including:
- Basic electricity components and their schematic symbols
- Basic DC circuit properties – voltage, current, resistance and powers
- Voltage sources
- Resistor values using the resistor color code
- Parallel resistors
- Basics of using a digital multimeter
