Motors and Controllers
This will be an overview of the different types of motors, (1 phase, 3 phase, DC) and how they operate. Also covered are the different types of controllers and control wiring. In the lab we will wire three wire start- stop, reversing, interlock and other control systems.
In this class we will learn about the new and exciting field of Green energy. Topics are, solar panels, charging regulators, electric storage, inverters and metering. In the lab we will learn how to connect the equipment into a working system.
Students will learn how to bend stub 90's, kicks, offsets, 3 and 4 bend saddles. Also covered are parallel offsets and segment bending. This is a very "hands on" class and we will be using hand benders, chicago benders and electric benders.

The purpose, importance and history of fire alarm systems
The basic components of fire alarm systems
The different types of fire alarm systems
The different types of suppression system attachments
The signals fire alarms systems produce
The history of codes and standards development and the standards development process
There is a hands-on lab for installation, programming and maintenance/inspection of fire alarm systems.
