  • Electricity lights up our streets and buildings, and enables us to use and enjoy the many electronic devices that make our lives more comfortable. Skilled electricians and engineers work behind the scenes to ensure that we receive a continuous supply of electric power. In order to do this, they need to have a thorough understanding of the basic concepts and practices of the electrical trade that enables them to install and maintain functional electrical systems.

    In Alison's free online diploma course, the first section introduces you to the electrical trade. Topics on electrical safety, electrical circuits, and electrical theory are discussed in this section. The next section of the course focuses on what constitutes an electrical wiring system. This section explains the installation procedures and storage techniques for electrical wiring components such as device boxes, raceways and fittings, conductors and cables. The final section of the course covers the electrical drawings and test equipment used in the trade. Some of this test equipment includes ammeters, galvanometers, voltmeters, multi-meters.

    Alison's free Diploma course will be of great interest to professionals in the areas of construction and electrical engineering. Learners who want to gain a practical knowledge and understanding of the electrical trade would also benefit from the concepts explained in this course.
