Reinders Basic Electrical Course for Low Voltage Lighting Systems

Date: Apr 11, 2019

April 11th, 2019, 10 AM-3 PM
Reinders Kenosha Location 8441 197th Ave, Bristol, WI


Goal: This is a basic electrical design and troubleshooting class for low voltage lighting systems. With new LED technology came the notion that understanding proper electrical design and voltage drop calculations were a thing of the past. This could not be further from the truth and the goal of this class is to give attendees the proper tools needed to design, install, and troubleshoot low voltage lighting systems using hands-on learning, code reference, electrical formulas, and proven field techniques.
