This foundation Electronic Equipment Repair course is designed for participants of all skill levels. The aim of the course is to enable participants to build, test and fault-find Analogue Electronic circuits at introductory level.
Duration and Schedule
Next Course commences on Tuesday 4th October at 7.00 pm. and takes place from 7.00pm – 10.00pm every Tuesday and Thursday evenings for the duration of the 5-week Course.
Online Virtual Classroom – how it works
The course will be delivered through blended learning consisting of 9 virtual classroom sessions with assessments (multiple choice for City & Guilds and written for H-Tech Training) taking place on the 10th evening at our training centre at 4, North Great Georges Street, Dublin 1. During the Online Virtual Classroom sessions, trainees will have a live video feed with their instructor talking to them, doing practical live demonstrations on equipment shipped to you and involved you actively in the learning.
We will send out a practical kit so that trainees can complete assignments and practical work at home. The kit consists of breadboard, multimeter, battery, cables, connectors, components including resistors, diodes, capacitors, bridge rectifier, fuses, Relays, LEDs, Transistors, etc. Trainees will build various projects as part of the course. The kit forms an integral part of the course, so full course fees need to be paid at last 7 days prior to course commencement to allow time to ship the kit in time for the course.
In preparation for this, we plan to have a quick informal online meeting about a week before course commencement for about an hour just to make sure that people get connected in properly, let you know what the online virtual classroom will be like and go through any questions you may have. To join the virtual sessions, you will need a PC/Laptop or Tablet with an internet connection. Joining instructions (logon IDs, etc) will be sent before the Informal Induction session.
Electronics Equipment Repair 1 equips participants with practical “Hands-On” skills relevant to the workplace and the theory required for certification. Participants on successful completion of the course will have the skills and knowledge to:
- Demonstrate the operation of a wide range of electronic components and circuits and their applications in modern electronic based equipment such as amplifiers, Hi-Fi systems, stereos, and control systems
- Construct, test and faultfind the following popular basic circuits: Power supplies, amplifiers, timers, etc.
- Become competent in the correct use of electronic test and measurement equipment such as Analogue and Digital Multimeter and Oscilloscopes.
- Introduction to Electronics: – Electric Current, OHMS Law, Insulation, Conduction and related formulae. Resistor and capacitor colour codes.
- Practical uses of commonly used components e.g. Cables, connectors, fuses, batteries, resistors, capacitors, diodes, LED’s, transformers, etc.
- Construction, testing and faultfinding the following popular basic circuits: – Power supplies, amplifiers, timers, etc.
- Test Equipment: Analogue and Digital Multimeters and Oscilloscopes.
- PCB’s: – Types and Construction. Assembling devices on breadboard and prepared PCB. Soldering and De-Soldering Techniques. Use of solder wick and suckers.
- Health & Safety, Care of Tools and instruments for assembly and repair.
- City & Guilds of London Institute Technology, Components and Circuits (Examination No. 7267-421). This examination consists of 1 written paper and 5 practical assignments. The qualification can be used as part of the requirement for City & Guilds Diploma in IT Systems Support (7267-24).
- On completion of the Course, having been successful in an examination, the participant will receive a Hi-Tech Training Certificate.
