The foundation for safely working with electrical equipment is a sound understanding of electrical theory. Electrical theory involves the study of atoms, their reactions, and their involvement in electrical circuits. Technicians must understand electrical theory to fully understand the roles that voltage, current & resistance play in electrical systems. The primary action in any designed electrical circuit or system is the controlled flow of electrons. Technicians must know what electrons are, what makes them flow, how their flow is controlled, and how this flow is used to perform work. In addition, they must know what to expect if an unintentional or catastrophic flow of electrons should occur. Having a solid understanding of electrical theory enables technicians to work safely with electrical equipment, and understand when electrical equipment is malfunctioning. These skills are fundamental for a successful career as technicians.
