Course Overview

In the arena of equipment maintenance, connection or alteration, the capability to read and understand electric drawings is a complete must. This Electrical Drawings and Schematics course covers the creation of detailed electrical drawings, drawing sets and documentation.

It will also discuss protected working practices; methods in inferring technical data and specifications; consuming advanced computer-aided systems and commands, and demonstrate suitable drafting peripheral systems, apparatus and tools to develop detailed drawings. The staff dealing with such equipment and designs should be able to read and understand electrical drawings for equipment maintenance, installation, or modification.

The Electrical Drawings and Schematics course will also provide its participant’s familiarity with electrical equipment design drawing methods, practices, procedures, storing and retrieving data, and producing related documentation for introductory and closing drafts for confirmation. Any electrical drawing comprises of lines, symbols, scopes, and notations to precisely convey engineering design to the employees who install the electrical system.

What is the purpose of this Electrical Drawings and Schematics course? This course is designed to help students to understand the fundamentals of electrical drawings including logic diagrams, wiring layout and CAD. After completing this course, the trainees will possess a professional knowledge of different types of drawings and diagrams and understand their purpose and flow.

This Zoe training course will empower you with the consciousness of knowing the importance of electrical drawings and control circuits, as well as how to go about planning and carrying out competent policies and procedures to maintain high standards in these aspects of engineering.
