Covers the fundamental of electricity and electronics as applied to the electrical field. Topics include Ohm's and Watts Law, circuits, magnetism, inductance, resistance, capacitance and alternating current circuits. Also covers an introduction to solid state devices such as diodes, transistors, and JFET's. Utilizes voltmeters, ammeters, power supplies, signal generators, and oscilloscopes to construct circuits during lab activities. This certificate can be earned while pursuing an Associate in Applied Science degree in Electrical Technology.
