Electricians Service & Maintenance Course

UTA's training gives apprentice Electricians a "Jump-Start" by teaching the practical side of the trade through "How it works" and "Hands-On Training".

This program helps keep down the high cost of "Ride-along Training" where experienced Electricians teach the trade to apprentices On-the-Job!

Many Electricians struggle when it comes to electrical circuitry, controls, diagrams and troubleshooting. Along with the struggle comes a lack of confidence that "haunts" the technician and keeps them from reaching their potential.

This one-week course contains a blend of classroom training that teaches the theory on "how it works" and most importantly the "hands on training" in the lab teaches the "how to" procedures that gets the job done.

UTA maintains a low student to instructor ratio so each technician gets the "one on one" help they need in the lab. Each student works individually in the lab so they excel at their own rate. UTA's courses do not require and pre-course study materials so you can enroll at any time and... we provide all tools, meters, and diagnostic equipment necessary during the course.

Topics Covered in this Class:

  • Electrical theory, safety, transformers, inductive & resistive loads.electrical lab 2
  • Electrical Troubleshooting and reading diagrams.
  • Low voltage relays and controls.
  • Motor theory, application and starting controls.
  • Time saving diagnostic methods that helps get right to the problem.
  • Code requirements for residential wiring.
  • Panel replacements.
  • Understanding and building a residential home wiring system.
  • Main Panel wiring and construction.
  • Branch circuit design and wire sizing. 
  • Grounding and neutral. 
  • Circuit most used in residential wiring.

Students will spend about two-thirds of the time in the lab wiring and troubleshooting the most popular electrical circuits used in residential wiring.

Newer Apprentice Electricians will learn the electrical skills needed to install and troubleshoot the majority of the circuits used in residential home wiring. They will be able to perform light service diagnostics now, and have a foundation to build their career on. With the ability to perform most of the wiring and maintenance tasks involved in residential wiring, they will be more productive as they work through their apprenticeship program.

Technicians that have a Year or Two of Experience will improve their diagnostic skills so they can quickly and accurately troubleshoot electrical problems. This gives technicians the ability to take on more difficult calls and allows them to excel in their career. Students not only gain the technical knowledge they must have, but also the confidence they need to succeed.
