BCIT is planning for a substantial return to on-campus activity for the fall 2021 term as informed by BC Public Health Officer guidelines. Refer to each course listing for details.
Starting with development of a fundamental understanding of electrical circuits and electrical and electronic components, this course develops the capacity to interpret circuit configuration and employ an effective diagnostic strategy to identify basic circuit failures. In addition to the 24 hours of instructor guided course delivery, each week students are assigned approximately 5 additional hours of self-paced online interactive knowledge building assignments.
This is a blended session combines both online learning and classroom delivery; students will complete online learning modules between classroom sessions. CSA approved safety glasses and steel-toed footwear required. Classes held on Monday Jan 24(online) PLUS 3 Saturdays on campus, Jan 29, Feb 5 & Feb 12.
Important course information will be sent to you prior to your course start
date. Check your myBCIT email account to
