Course Description

The Motors & Motor Controls class specializes in high-demand career areas expecting a critical shortage of qualified workers.  This course covers the principles and application of industrial sequential control and electrical controls construction as found in a typical manufacturing environment.  Topics include AC fixed speed motor control; control transformers, relays, timers, and counters; mechanical, pneumatic and hydraulic input and output devices; sequencing and logic functions; introduction to component and systems troubleshooting. 

Notice: Per City guidelines, masking will be strongly recommended but not mandatory. Wearing a high-quality mask such as KN95 or N95 mask, or double masking, is strongly encouraged.  It is important to wear a mask that is well-fitted. For information on proper masking, including how to double mask, please read this guidance from the CDC: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/your-health/effective-masks.html.
