Descriptions and credit recommendations for all evaluated learning experiences

Location:
The Learning Center, 43-82 Vernon Boulevard, Long Island City, NY.
Length:

Version 1 and 2: 136 hours (4 weeks). Version 3: 200 hours (5 weeks); includes 120 hours of supervised laboratory experience. Version 4: 160 hours. 

Dates:

Version 1: January 1974 - April 1990. Version 2: May 1990 - February 1994. Version 3: March 1994 - July 2018. Version 4: August 2018 - Present. 

Objectives:

Version 1: Upon successful completion of the course, students will be to: become familiar with electrical theory and  safely maintain, test, and operate apparatus utilized on network systems. Version 2: Students will be able to: define and describe the terminology and basic electrical theory associated with power distribution systems in general, and relay protection systems in particular; and safely install, maintain, test, and operate apparatus utilized on network systems. Version 3 and 4: Students will be able to: troubleshoot field network protective systems using schematics, wiring diagrams, and standard test equipment.

Instruction:

Version 1:  Major topics include: a brief qualitative introduction to basic DC and AC theory, a detailed introduction to the secondary network distribution system and the operation and maintenance practices for network transformers, protectors, and relays (including solid state network protector relays). Laboratory exercises emphasize the installation, maintenance, and testing of these devices. Version 2: Major topics include: a brief qualitative introduction to basic DC and AC theory, introduction to the secondary network distribution system and the operation and maintenance practices for network transformers, protectors, and relays (including solid state network protector relays and three-phase remote monitoring systems). Laboratory exercises emphasize the installation, maintenance, and testing of these devices. Version 3 and 4: Major topics include: basic DC and AC circuit theory, the use of meters, power generation, and transformers; detailed introduction the secondary network distribution system and the operation and maintenance practices for network transformers, protectors, and relays (including solid state network protector relays and three-phase remote monitoring systems). Laboratory exercises, using supplied schematics and wiring diagrams, emphasize the installation, maintenance, testing, troubleshooting of these devices.

Credit recommendation:

Version 1 and 2: In the lower division baccalaureate/associate degree category, 3 semester hours (shop) in Electrical Construction Technology or Electrical Power Technology (1/84) (5/90 revalidation). NOTE: Because a substantial portion of the material covered in this course is also covered in Advanced Troubleshooting Network Protector (EIA-0004), a total of 4 semester hours of credit is recommended for the successful completion of both courses. Version 3 and 4: In the lower division baccalaureate/associate degree category, 4 semester hours (shop) in Electrical Construction Technology or Electrical Power Technology (11/95 revalidation) (3/01 revalidation) (8/01 revalidation) (8/06 revalidation) (8/18 revalidation).
