LEARN THAT EXTRA SKILL. USE IT!!
Basic Electricity for the Non-Electrician Skills Training
December 11 @ 09:00 - December 22 @ 16:30 EATUSD230
Purpose of Training
This course provides students with a practical, real-world education in basic electricity. Specific needs and concerns of each student will be addressed so that upon completion they’ll be able to reduce equipment downtime, improve overall efficiency and safety, and fix problems they’ve never been able to fix before.
This course will also come in handy for those wishing to join our security courses as trainees but lack basic electricity skills
Solutions learned in this class will more than pay for the cost of training, a dozen, a hundred, or a thousand times over.
Upon completion of this 2-WEEK TRAINING (10 days), the student will receive a certificate of completion with 6 classroom hours per day attended.
Fee: KES 30K (covers tuition, practicals, exam, and certificate of competence)
