Regardless of the mode of delivery, represent a guide to the relative teaching time and student effort required to successfully achieve a particular competency/module. This may include not only scheduled classes or workplace visits but also the amount of effort required to undertake, evaluate and complete all assessment requirements, including any non-classroom activities.

Pre-requisites and Co-requisites

UEENEEE003B Solve problems in extra-low voltage single
path circuits
 

Course Description

This unit covers determining correct operation of single source
d.c. parallel and series-parallel circuits and providing solutions
as they apply to various electrotechnology work functions. It
encompasses working safely, problem solving procedures,
including the use of voltage, current and resistance measuring
devices, providing solutions derived from measurements and calculations to predictable problems in multiple path circuit.
