SERIES This electrical maintenance series will help students master the
fundamentals of AC and DC electronics. The series covers AC current,
SPECIFICATIONS measurement, circuitry, and transformers as well as DC magnetism,
measurement, circuitry, inductance, and capacitance.
OUTLINE The AC/DC Theory series is designed for new electronics students who
have little to no knowledge of the field. All terms used are explained or
defined throughout the courses, so students are not required to have
an electronics vocabulary to understand the content.
This series is intended to be used as a critical component in your

industrial electronics preparation program. It is designed to develop
a fundamental understanding of electronics. Each lesson has specific
objectives that identify the anticipated level of understanding
associated with the information presented. While we cannot
guarantee student success, our experience indicates that those who
complete the training are likely to accomplish the stated objectives.
Furthermore, if these lessons are built into a total curriculum which
includes practice in the working environment, it will provide students
with the knowledge necessary to master the subject.
