The discovery of electricity is one of the greatest achievements of man. Its use has made our lives so comfortable that, today, scientists in all countries are trying their utmost to use it more and more for all purposes.
Electricity has helped to remove darkness and increase human activity. Powerful lights are used in factories, schools, hospitals and in all other dark places where men have to work for the benefit of others or for themselves. Men are able to go anywhere even in the darkest of nights.
Electricity has also enabled men to increase the production of their goods. Huge machines are operated in large factories with the help of electricity for the manufacture of useful goods. These machines work ceaselessly and produce enormous quantities of goods, which are distributed throughout the world, for the comfort of people in all parts of the earth.
Electricity has become quite common in today’s world. Everybody loves what it can do and loves the level at which it is being used. The street lights work on electric current. Fans in the court, office rooms, homes, etc. all work on electricity. Trains and trams too run on the power on electricity. Hence electricity is no longer a strange thing.
We need human resource for repairing and maintenance of electrical and electronics devices. This curriculum is for the technician doing repair and maintenance of electrical gadgets. After successful completion of level-I, the students will be able to understand the fundamental of Electricity and Electronics, after the completion of level-II the students will be able to perform the job role of Domestic Appliances Technician, after the completion of level-III the job roles of Wireman ,Home Appliances Technician, Electrician Helper , House Wiring Technician ,and after the completion of level-IV the job roles of Field Technician-Industrial & Commercial wiring, Home Electric Technician, D.G.Set Operator ,House Wiring Technician, Electrician, Panel wiring Technician, Maintenance Operator-LT & HT Substation, Owner of Electrical Wiring accessories shop. After completion of all the levels the students can select the vocation of his choice or pursue higher studies including diploma, graduation, post-graduation or obtain specialized diploma in any of the job roles to become supervisor in the industry.
Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:
Classroom Activities: Classroom activities are an integral part of this programme and interactive lecture sessions, followed by discussions should be conducted by trained teachers. Teachers should make effective use of a variety of instructional aids, such as Videos, Colour Slides, Charts, Diagrams, Models, Exhibits, Handouts, Recorded Compact Discs, etc. to transmit knowledge in projective and interactive mode.
Practical Activities: Activities that provide practical experience through case based problems, role play, games, etc. and practical exercises using props, tools and equipment should be regularly organized off-the- job and on-the-job. Equipment and supplies should be provided to enhance hands-on experiences to students in the chosen occupation. Trained personnel should teach specialized techniques such as dismantling and assembling of computer parts, servicing of computers, operating Web programming, etc.
On-the-Job Training: On-the-job training (OJT) occurs whenever more experienced employee or supervisor teaches less experienced person on how to do one or more tasks of a job. The training utilizes actual equipment and materials. OJT should be undertaken in a structured manner with a training plan under the supervision of an experienced trainer or supervisor. A training plan that reflects tasks to be performed and competencies to be imparted should be prepared and signed by the student, teacher, and supervisor at the workplace for training of the students in the organization/industry. The trainer should break down all the steps of the job and train the students as per the training plan. In a structured OJT, the following steps should be followed:
Step 1: The Instructor or the trainer tell, show, demonstrate, and explain. The trainer gives an overview of the task while explaining the constructional details and use of the tools, equipment, materials, etc. in performing the tasks.
Step 2: The Instructor or the trainer demonstrates each step in detail, actually doing the steps of the task and explaining each step, one at a time, while the trainee watches. The steps may not necessarily be demonstrated in the sequence of actual operation, as sometimes it is better that simple tasks are demonstrated first to build confidence. Showing finished products at each appropriate step will help the leaner understand what is required as outcome. While demonstrating, the trainer explains why each step is done in the way it is done.
Step 3: It involves direct trainee participation. The trainer monitors the progress on a checklist of competencies and offers feedback and pointers where and when needed.
Step 4: The trainee practices with clearly defined targets for performance standards.
Certification: Upon successful completion of this course, the State Education Board and the IT-ITeS Sector Skill Council will provide a certificate to the student verifying the competencies acquired by the student.
