Amatrol’s AC/DC Electrical Training System (T7017) explores the fundamental concepts of AC and DC electrical systems. Learners will see how electricity is used for power and control in industrial, commercial, agricultural, and residential applications. This training system covers industry-relevant technical skills including how to operate, install, design, and troubleshoot basic AC and DC electrical circuits for various applications.

Learning Outcomes

Learners will use the AC/DC Training System components to practice hands-on skills such as operate a circuit using a circuit breaker, test a capacitor using a digital multimeter, connect and operate a basic lighting circuit, locate a short circuit, and troubleshoot a transformer by measuring continuity. Other topics include:

  • Basic Electrical Circuits
  • Fundamentals of Electricity
  • Electrical Measurements
  • Series and Parallel Circuits
  • Circuit Analysis
  • Circuit Protection Devices
  • Inductance Capacitance
  • Electromagnetism
  • Combination Circuits

The T7017A’s curriculum begins with the basics of electricity and builds to show learners how electricity is utilized in residential applications, as well as in industrial components and areas such as programmable controllers, electrical motor control, and electro-fluid power. Learners will study topics such as how to use a voltmeter to measure voltage, stating a formula for calculating total parallel resistance, the functions of four electromagnetic devices, how switches and used in combination circuits, and how to troubleshoot a transformer. This electrical training course is presented in an interactive multimedia format, which features stunning 3D graphics and video, audio voiceovers of all of the text, and interactive quizzes and activities.


eLearning: All Amatrol training systems have interactive, multimedia eLearning courses and modules tied to these learning concepts. This curriculum utilizes text with voiceovers, pictures, videos, stunning 3D animations, interactive quizzes and knowledge checks, pre- and post-quizzes and more. Through partnerships with key industry leaders and leading educators, Amatrol developed the right balance of knowledge to train learners to work in their chosen field.

Student Reference Guides: A sample copy of the AC/DC Electrical Student Reference Guide is included with the learning system. Sourced from the curriculum, the Student Reference Guide takes the entire series’ technical content contained in the learning objectives and combines them into one perfectly-bound book. You may also purchase as many additional SRGs as you need.

Virtual Trainer: The AC/DC Electrical Training System also features a virtual multi-media trainer! Amatrol’s virtual trainers replicate hands-on equipment in such great detail that learners will feel like they are using the actual equipment. Learners will perform essentially the same tasks using virtual trainers that they would perform using equipment hardware. Transition from theory to hands-on is a seamless process.
