This training serves as a perfect introduction (or supplement) to understand the fundamental DC concepts. Training provides detailed explanations of Ohm’s Law, the theory underlying operation of series/parallel circuits and combination circuits, plus the use of batteries and small sources of electricity. Safety is strongly emphasized. The blend of theory, electrical formulas, calculations,and entertaining historical information captivates learners and stimulates interest in the study of electricity/electronics basics. Graphics and animations provide realistic examples of abstract DC concepts and mathematical theories at work.
