Basic Electronics Training Course

Basic Electronics training is a four and a half–day hands-on electronics training course. Basic electronics teaches you about basic electronics, RF and radio and  provides the theory and hands-on knowledge required to pass the FCC General Radiotelephone Operator License Exams – Element 1 and Element 3. This training course teaches the theory and techniques your team requires for understanding and maintaining radio systems.  The FCC General Radiotelephone exam is not given during this training, but you will have the knowledge to pass the exam. This electronics training course provides a number of practical electronic labs to teach your team about working with electronics circuits and RF systems.

This course seeks to provide your team with the required knowledge and ability to successfully pass the FCC General Radiotelephone Operators License and more importantly, build a broad basic knowledge of electronics, RF and radio principles. This course offers a much deeper level of understanding than the two-day version of this training. It goes beyond what might be required for the GROL exam and helps your team gain a deeper and broader understanding of basic electronics, RF and radio.

This Basic Electronics training course includes the following:

  • Electronics parts kit and solder-less breadboard for you to keep
  • 300 page electronics course manual
  • 4.5 days of instructor led electronics hands-on training and project labs at your location
  • Certification for those that complete all the labs and pass the final exam

Technicians and engineers will all benefit from this four and a half-day course. Additionally, students coming with an IT background will find this electronics training course a detailed and encompassing introduction to the basics of electronics and rf circuits.  This Basic Electronics course will cover the following areas:

  • Basic DC and electronics
  • Ohms law and circuits
  • Introduction to schematicsBasic electronics training course

This course features a significant number of hands-on lab projects that will enhance your team’s knowledge of electronics and RF. Some of the projects may include:

  • Resistor circuits
  • SwitchingElectronics, RF & Radio Training Course
  • Diode switches
  • LED circuits
  • Logic circuits
  • Transistor circuits
  • 555 timer circuits
  • 741 op-amp circuits
  • Filters
  • Power supplies
  • Troubleshooting circuits

Students that pay attention, work through all the exercises and pass the final exam should be capable of passing the FCC exam. Note that each student will receive a “bread board” and kit of parts that they will work with during the class and can keep after the course is completed. This is an interactive, hands-on and encompassing basic electronics course for those seeking a better understanding of electronics and radio. This extended version offers a deep and broad experience and opportunity for your team to achieve a solid understanding of basic electronics, RF and radio principles.

“Singer Executive Development recently completed a basic electronics training course for our technicians. From the start the team at SED worked with us to optimize the course for our specific needs. What really impressed me was the balance that SED used by expertly mixing hands-on lab exercises using real electrical circuits with an engaging presentation style that reinforced learning of key concepts. This is not just a check the box training. Its real, practical training with valuable take-aways for the entire class regardless of prior experience.”
