Amatrol's electrical power distribution eLearning course covers important topics, such as:
Introduction to Raceways
Learners begin with an introduction to raceways, including EMT conduit cutoff and preparation, conduit bodies and boxes, and conduit fittings. Individual lessons focus on topics like the basic parts of a wiring system, types of vises, conduit fittings, and connectors. Learners will also practice skills, such as cutting EMT conduit to length using a hacksaw, deburring conduit, and connecting EMT between two boxes.
Basic Conduit Bending
Learners will study the basics of conduit bending, including conduit benders and offset bends. Individual lessons focus on topics like common methods used to bend conduit, types of benders, and the components of an offset bend. Learners will also practice skills, such as determining the take-up of a hand bender, laying out and bending EMT with proper leg length and stub-up, and determining and locating the bend centers of an offset bend.
Learners using Amatrol’s electrical power distribution eLearning course will study basic principles of advanced raceways, including IMC conduit bending and assembly and flexible conduit. Individual lessons focus on topics like tools used to cut intermediate metallic and rigid conduit, components of mechanical benders, and connectors and couplings used with IMC, rigid, and flexible metal conduit. Learners will also practice skills, such as changing the shoe of a mechanical bender, threading IMC conduit, and connecting and coupling IMC given an application.
Conductors, Disconnects, and Overcurrent Protection
Learners will study various aspects and components of conductors, disconnects, and overcurrent protection. Individual lessons focus on topics like conductor ampacity, types of disconnects, and the function of overcurrent protection. Learners will also practice skills, such as selecting wire size and type for an application, selecting a disconnect for an application, and selecting circuit protection for an application.
Conduit Sizing and Wire Pulling Techniques
Learners using Amatrol’s electrical power distribution eLearning course will study various aspects of conduit sizing and wire pulling techniques, including raceway specification, electrical box selection, conductor pulling, and power distribution system installation. Individual lessons focus on topics like methods used to select raceway diameter, how to select the correct size electrical box, methods used to pull conductors, and the function of bus bars and bus plugs. Learners will also practice skills, such as determining conduit size when conductors are of different size and/or types, determining electrical box size when conductors are of different sizes, pulling conductors using fish tape, and connecting a bus plug to a bus bar.
