Students in this program learn the basics of electrical motor control components, circuits, and systems found in industrial and manufacturing settings. They'll also explore electrical control symbols, ladder diagrams, power distribution and control transformers. Graduates are well-versed in concepts of motor starters, relays, limit switches, pushbuttons, selector switches, timers, ac motor principles, proximity sensors, photo eyes and basic troubleshooting of power and control circuits.
