Decrease production downtime, improve efficiency and increase output-All hinges on understand electricity and how to work with it safely. These courses have been specifically developed to give students the knowledge and skills required to enable them to work safely and effectively with electricity. The lab components of the training offer the student the opportunity to build, test and troubleshoot AC/DC circuits and examine the operating voltages and currents related to proper circuit operation. Technicians will use various instruments to make circuits measurements and calculations. 


The Snap-on Multimeter Certification is awarded to students who have been trained in the use of Snap-on advanced electrical monitoring equipment. The knowledge and experience gained in this critical discipline are Tools for Life essential to a successful career in critical industries.
