Course Curriculum

In module one, we will be introduced to the key topics that will be discussed in this course, with a general overview of the skills you will gain throughout.

In module two, we will deepen our knowledge of electrical units and measurements. It also includes an introduction to Ohm’s Law, to understand the relationship between voltage, current and resistance.

In module three, we will learn about direct current (DC), with examples. It covers how DC currents work and why they are not suitable for homes.

In module four, we will learn about alternative currents (AC), with examples. It covers how AC currents work, where they are used, and how they are produced.

In module five, we will study the relationship between voltage and resistance, as well as how to calculate resistance. We will also take a closer look at Ohm’s Law.

In module six, we will explore the relation between capacitance and capacitors, and the factors affecting capacitance.

In module seven, we will learn about the science of magnetism, including the different types of magnetism and the link between magnetism and electricity.

In module eight, we will gain an in-depth understanding of electrical safety law and regulations in the UK, including how to work safely and professionally with electrical equipment.
