Electrical System Troubleshooting & Circuit Analysis

Learn to:

  • Observe circuit behaviors with precision
  • Make a thorough inspection for external clues
  • Record critical data during troubleshooting
  • Use logic to make a plan of attack
  • Minimize the number of meter measurements taken
  • Follow a methodical step by step procedure

Does your maintenance department have the most effective electrical circuit troubleshooting skills? If not, you may be spending too much on avoidable downtime and unneeded parts.

This course is designed to help electrical troubleshooters focus their logic and make a minimal number of meter tests. With a clear methodical process, troubleshooting under the stress of unplanned downtime can be carried out efficiently and effectively.

The Ten Step Troubleshooting Process is taught with the goal of eliminating the hit and miss methods that can be so costly in terms of time and materials. Safety is stressed along with sound maintenance practices. This two-day course is taught using circuit fault panels, an award winning, circuit fault simulation software package by Simutech where time and money (parts) spent is tracked, and through instructor guided hands-on study of troubleshooting methods.

I learned to use a logical step by step procedure using schematics and test meter to troubleshoot. Quite diverse and challenging. Well worth the time and money.Tim Bond, Electrician, Mitchell's Gourmet Foods, Saskatoon
