SOE 111 - Electricity 2

Credits: 3
3 Lecture Hours

Prerequisites: SOE 101  

This course is a continuation of Electricity 1 and is designed to provide training in the more advanced areas of electrical principles, practices, and maintenance in residential, commercial and industrial applications. The training includes more advanced applications using the tools, materials, fixtures, and practices of circuits, transformers, and electric control devices commonly used in the electrical trade.

Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of the course, the student will:
