A question you may ask before taking this course is: Why do I need to know about circuit measurement?
Well, if you intend to accomplish anything in the field of electricity and electronics, you must be aware of the forces acting inside the circuits with which you work. Three basic parameters - current, potential difference (voltage) and resistance are of primary importance to achieve the desired functionality of any electrical circuit. Engineers concerned with design of electrical systems keep necessary provisions for in-circuit meters to monitor the operation of a piece of electric or electronic equipment and determine the reason the equipment is not functioning properly.
This 4-hr course provides you some rudimentary understanding of the measuring instruments and demonstrates their correct and intelligent use. This course material is based entirely on Naval Education and Training Materials (NAVEDTRA 14175), Electricity and Electronic Training Series; Module-3 “Circuit Measurement” and covers Chapter 1.
The course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
