This workshop series will be held from 6 to 8:50 p.m. Oct. 14, 16, 21 and 23 in T&I 126. Killion said his basic electricity workshop series will include construction, analysis, and diagnosis of AD/DC circuits and circuit faults using associated equipment. Schematics, single and 3-phase control circuits, wiring projects and electrical meters for testing electrical circuits will also be introduced. These workshops will be held from 6 to 8:50 p.m. Nov. 4, 6, 11 and 13 in T&I 126. Participants will receive one credit hour for the successful completion of each workshop series.
