The main objective of this Unit is to expose the learners to a better understanding of the operation and application of a number of analogue electronic circuits.
This unit provides learners with an understanding of Electrical Circuits theorems and calculations. The unit will develop learner’s knowledge by understanding the operation and troubleshooting of simple electronic circuits. It provides opportunities for learners to investigate practically by means of hands on experiments.
Electronic Principles forms part of the Course in Electrical / Electronics Technology.
This is a 60 hr guided learning unit. Lessons are held as indicated on the prospectus and website.
Learning Outcome 1: Demonstrate understanding of the fundamentals of electrical and electronic theory
Learning Outcome 2: Build and test analogue electronic circuits
Learning Outcome 3: Describe the function of electronics components
Learning Outcome 4: Demonstrate the principles of operation of basic test equipment
The following are the suggested pre-requisites and/or entry requirements needed:
Course participants may be awarded either an MCAST Certificate of Attendance or an MCAST Certificate of Achievement.
MCAST Certificate of Attendance
MCAST Certificate of Achievement
If the student intends to obtain a Certificate of Achievement, she/he is required to sit for an assessment/s. Assessment/s may take various forms such as a home assignment, class assignment, practical test and time constrained test. However, the assessment/s is not compulsory and an applicant may choose not to sit for it.
There are no additional costs or special materials/equipment to bring.
