Course Description

This unit covers fault finding and repairing analogue applications in electronic control systems. The unit encompasses safe working practices, interpreting diagrams and technical data, applying knowledge of analogue circuits and components to logical fault finding processes, implementing fault rectification, safety and functional testing and reporting work activities and outcomes.

The skills and knowledge described in this unit require a license to practice in the workplace where plant and equipment operate at voltage above 50 V a.c. or 120 V d.c. However other conditions may apply in some jurisdictions subject to regulations related to electrical work. Practice in the workplace and during training is also subject to regulations directly related to occupational health and safety and where applicable contracts of training such as apprenticeships.
