ELTR 1156 - Residential Wiring I, 6 Credits

Corequisite(s): ELTR 1166 ELTR 1176

Level: Lower

This lecture course introduces a student to the theories, principles, and laws of static and dynamic electricity. Direct and alternating current circuits are studied utilizing the related trade mathematics covering topics such as Ohm's law, resistance, power, inductance, and capacitance. Major emphasis is placed on applying trade related mathematics and analytical reasoning to troubleshooting series, parallel and compound circuits. National Electrical Code requirements and proper techniques for soldering/terminating conductors are covered. Students will learn to interpret and draw electrical schematics and wiring diagrams relating to low voltage signal circuits. The National Electrical Code and its application to residential branch circuit requirements and non-metallic wiring methods as well as correct electrical and component terminology is introduced.
