This unit provides practical training for learners in troubleshooting, inspection and testing of electrical, electronic and mechanical systems and sub-systems as commonly found in robotic, drone and industrial automation equipment. The skills learnt in this unit are essential for the maintenance and repair of electromechanical equipment, as seen in several applications. Learners will be taught about the different electrical, and electronic-based test instruments which are commonly used in industry through practical exercises carried out on electronic and electromechanical equipment. Learners will also learn about safety considerations to be taken when testing and inspecting equipment. By the end of the unit, learners should be able to independently carry out inspections through testing, identify problems and implement timely solutions.
