The Industrial Electrical Systems course offered by TECHNO TRAINING leads to the QQI Level 6 6N5377 Industrial Electrical System Minor award. It is one of eight modules needed to complete the 6M5154 Maintenance Skills Technology major award.

Programme Description

The course develops the skills required by industrial maintenance technicians to safely diagnose and repair faults in electrically controlled production equipment. Learners must first understand the correct operation of electric circuits and electrical components and then by navigating schematics, using good logical thinking and skillful test strategies, they will be able to narrow to the root cause It enables maintenance staff to be effective in the use of preventative and corrective maintenance and service strategies when working on modern production systems and components. We offer a uniquely practical course focused on replicating real-life production issues to create optimum skills transfer to job performance.

We can customize this course for clients incorporating application-specific drawings.

Who should attend?

The course is ideally suited to industrial maintenance personnel who would like to increase their electrical troubleshooting skills.

However, anyone who has a need to work with electrical systems in their workplace will benefit from the training. It is geared towards non-electrical staff to enable them to carry out repairs and replacements safely, but electrically trained personnel will also find opportunities to add to their troubleshooting skills.

Correct diagnosis of electrical systems faults saves time and money in the long run. Effective troubleshooters add great value to the organization they work for.

This internationally recognized qualification will present opportunities to work in diverse areas within the manufacturing environment carrying out the diagnosing and repair/replacement of components.
