Electrical General

Did you ever ask yourself why a light bulb lights up when you turn on the switch? Do you want to know what the energy source which runs big parts of Namibia actually is and how you can use it to improve peoples life? Then this is the perfect vocational training for you!
In the Electrical General course at KAYEC we cover the installation of one-way, two-way and intermediate switches for basic light installation. This also extends to the knowledge about single and double tube  fluorescent and sodium vapor lamps. You will also learn about 3 heat stove switches and the installation of those devices and systems according to installation drawings and connection charts. If any problems occur it is also your responsibility to use the multimeter for testing the electric circuit and finding any issues to fix them. So if this sounds interesting to you and you would like to start a career as an electrician, then this is exactly the right vocational training for you!
