PEP 1: Theory and Code I
Provides an overview of the history of electricity, electrical theory and the National Electrical Code. A blend of the practical and theory, this course explains the different concepts relating to electrical theory, but also provides many practical examples of the common tasks that the electrician must perform. Specific topics discussed include basic electrical concepts and quantities, electrical safety and NEC articles 90 through 225.
PEP 2: Theory and Code II
Covers measuring instruments, small sources of electricity, basics of alternating current and NEC articles 230 through 339 as they relate to services, over-current protection, grounding and bonding, wiring methods, and temporary wiring.
PEP 3: Theory and Code III
Covers alternating current circuit theory, three phase power and NEC Articles 345 through 373 as they relate to conduits, raceways, multi-outlet assemblies, wireways and boxes.
PEP 4: Theory and Code IV
Covers transformers, direct and alternating current machines, and NEC Articles 374 through 450 as they relate to auxiliary gutter, switches, switchboards and panelboards, flexible cords, lighting fixtures, appliances, space heating equipment, HVAC and transformers.
PEP 5: Blueprint Reading
Covers the basics of system design, blueprint reading, construction drawings, sketching and estimating; with a heavy emphasis on materials, methods and components used in electrical systems.
PEP 6: Motor Controls I
Covers basic motor control theory, tools, symbols, diagrams, manual controls, magnetism, ac/dc starters, line diagrams and control circuit, control devices and reversing circuits.
PEP 7: Motor Controls II
Covers power distribution systems, solid state electronic devices, relays, photoelectric and proximity controls, programmable controllers, AC reduced voltage starters, motor speed control, and troubleshooting and maintaining motor circuits.
PEP 8: Leadership in the Electrical Industry
Addresses human relations, human resources and leadership skills for journeymen. It covers training apprentices, relations with authority, customer relations, communications, time management, problem solving, worth of persons, motivations and ethics.
