The Hydraulics and Pneumatics course is customized for Industrial Electricians and relates the basics of hydraulic/pneumatic theory and hydraulic/pneumatic components. Safety and the interrelationship between hydraulic/pneumatic power with electrical control are emphasized.
Leads learner through the fundamentals of electric motor control. Learner will learn to recognize and draw the symbols and language of motor control, and how to apply these symbols into current industrial format. Learner will also learn to draw and read ladder and wiring diagrams. Learner will be introduced to the logic used in motor control and be required to apply this logic in order to correctly interpret, troubleshoot, design, and wire control circuits.

Introduces learner to industrial automated equipment and systems. Learning outcomes will examine basic control loops, compare automated and robotic manufacturing systems, explore distributed and central control, examine various system layouts, apply controller concepts and communications, and discuss automated control system safety Signaling systems and redundant systems are explored as well.
Introduces the fundamentals of the programmable logic controller and its programming software. Learners identify terminology and components, explore functions, analyze logic instructions, interpret ladder logic, and develop basic programming and troubleshooting skills.
Apprentices will learn to describe and explain the make-up of an automatic control loop, the function of each of the control loop elements and the terms used to describe the loop performance and characteristics, perform mathematical functions associated with offset math and apply the concepts to common signaling systems use used in process control systems. Course will examine the principles, methods and devices used to measure flows, temperatures, pressures, levels, and densities in various industrial process applications. Course will explore common methods and types of equipment used to measure chemical components of a material or stream.
Introduces the Industrial Electrician Apprentice to the basic concepts of single and three-phase transformers. The course will cover transformer theory, turns, current and voltage ratios as well as proper connections and use of various transformers. In addition, this course is designed to give the Industrial Electrician Apprentice the knowledge required by industry to maintain electric motors and generators.
