Up your game. This module of Electrical Troubleshooting training is a natural follow-on from the QQI Level 6 Industrial Electrical Systems course. All of that electrical knowledge and skills can now bear fruit by practicing logical troubleshooting methods on panels with a large range of fault complexity and a range of computerised application simulations.

Who should attend? 

Maintenance and Process technicians 

Learners are exposed to multiple machine faults to enable them to internalise the thinking and testing skills needed to be an effective troubleshooter and add great value to any organisation where down time has a cost.

Techno Training - Training Providers for the Industry 4.0 Skillnet

Techno Training 

“Ireland’s leading provider of training for engineers, maintenance technicians, and contractors who want to develop their technical skills and qualifications. For nearly 30 years, we have delivered a range of technical courses, including QQI-certified courses and/or level 6 courses, in emergency lighting and industrial electrical systems, programmable logic controllers, and industrial pneumatics.”

Course Content 

Module 1 /

The troubleshooting Method, demonstrated

Module 2 /

Learners will get lots of practice applying their troubleshooting strategy on equipment. 

Fully functional, pre-wired leadscrew with locating solenoid and sensors. All cables labelled to match supporting schematics, one kit per learner. 15 faults.

Module 3 /

Practice troubleshooting with Simulations. Simutech troubleshooting software including 3 phase reversing motor circuit troubleshooting and filling and mixing tank process controlled by a plc. 20 faults


Course Objectives 

  • Apply a logical systematic strategy for approaching machine faults and narrowing to the cause, starting with visual symptoms and evidence gathering techniques, essential logical thinking approaches to narrow down a problem area to a specific circuit, navigation of the systems and testing and verification of a fix.
  • Evaluate which interventions are low risk and which carry the possibility of making things worse (by adding a second fault into the system)
  • Identify which components need a setup routine when changed-out vrs those that are simple plug and play.
  • Read electrical schematics to enable cause and effect relationships to be determined and test points to be established.
  • Apply effective strategies for faults including: open circuits, faulty components pulling down the power supply voltage, faulty coils, machine interlock loop faults, DC & AC short circuits, faulty sensors, sticky contacts, timer faults.
  • Apply safe work practises for when to work live, de-energised and when and how to isolate, Lock and Tag for maintenance.
  • Communicate effectively to the next shift, document progress on an unresolved fault. A vital skill for avoiding repeated steps.
