Wiring Techniques
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course describes many of the techniques used to prepare wire (cutting, stripping, crimping), install various types of connectors (soldered and solderless), and how to properly build and route harnesses and conduits. It will help the user understand wiring fundamentals, grasp the principles of circuit connections and procedures, and install circuits in various applications.


The satisfactory performance and continuous reliability of electrical system greatly depends on the quality of wiring. Improperly or carelessly installed wiring can be a source of both immediate and potential danger, and many malfunctions and failures can be traced to this cause.


This 3 PDH online course is applicable to students, professional engineers, service technicians, energy auditors, operational & maintenance personnel, facility engineers who are interested in gaining a better understanding in wiring techniques. This course is also extremely helpful to individuals who are just learning the principles of safe electrical wiring, hoping to refresh their existing knowledge or would like additional opportunities to practice wiring principles.
