Introduction to electronics for non-technical staff - one-day course

This six-hour course is an excellent way to introduce new and non-technical staff, such as accounts, sales, administration, stores procurement and purchasing staff, to the complexities’of electronics.

In this one day course we describe many of the most common components and what they do. Starting with the Printed Circuit Board, or PCB, we demonstrate what certain components do and why they need to go where they do; how to recognise different components and the industry jargon that goes with them. At the end of the day everyone gets the chance to build a working device to take away with them.

The beauty of this course is that it can be adapted to suit your staff’s needs and their role in your business.
