Course Outcomes

On successful completion of this course, the delegate will be able to:

  • Distinguish between static and current electricity
  • Use and manipulate values with Scientific Notation.
  • Identify electrical conductors and insulators
  • Explain the relationship among current, resistance and voltage
  • Measure voltages and amperages in circuits, and calculate resistance using Ohm’s law
