What you'll learn
  • Have a strong fundamental knowledge that will help them to jump-start their career
  • Have enough knowledge to be able to get the job done with little or no guidance
  • Ace the technical interview and get the dream job in the power industry
  • Basic English skills
  • Access to Internet
  • Motivation to learn

This course is designed to teach the target audience the basics of electrical power engineering. It is intended to ease the transition between a classroom and a workplace. It is not a secret that “real world” situations can be different from the book examples and this class will teach you what you need to know to succeed and impress your colleagues and your boss. The information that you will learn is interrelated and in the end, you will have enough understanding of the material to be able to do the job on your own without intensive Google search. 

As you learn about transformers, motors, generators and protection studies, you will also be better prepared for any technical interview. Students will develop distinctive knowledge and have stronger skills compared to their competitors and therefore, be able to get a dream job at the top company.

The best part of the course is the ability to learn the information only at fraction of the price that large corporations will charge you. You can learn at your own pace and always come back if something is unclear. In addition, new classes will be added and they won't cost you anything. 

Who this course is for:
  • People without engineering background entering the power engineering workforce
  • Newly graduated electrical engineers starting their first job
  • Electrical engineering students preparing for the technical interviews
