Slides, labs, worksheets, instructor notes, and assessment materials from the electrical troubleshooting course at LBCC. This course provides an introduction into electrical troubleshooting theory in troubleshooting common electrical problems including: low voltage, high voltage, unwanted resistance, open circuits, high resistance shorts-to-ground, and current and voltage unbalance. Efficiency technology and sustainable practices are covered. An effective troubleshooting methodology is embedded in this course.
The authors received OER funding from LBCC to compile the links in these documents. Instructors of PE 231 choose which resources they want to use in each section. Also included are library resources recommended by the LBCC OER librarian.
This course is designed to teach students about induction motors and the methods used to control and troubleshoot them.

An open source e-textbook designed specifically for use in LBCC’s WD4 (Technical Writing for Welders) and all versions of IN4 (Technical Writing for CTE). In this easy-to-navigate textbook, you’ll find all the necessary lessons and handouts for the course.
IN4/WD4 covers the processes and fundamentals of writing field-specific technical documents, including organization and development, audience analysis, diction and style, writing mechanics and standard usage, and the editing, proofing, and revising process required for successful workplace writing. The course focuses on writing workplace documents commonly written by technicians: emails, descriptions, customer intake documents, project closeout documentation, bad news messages, instructions, summaries, accident reports, and employment docs (resumes and cover letters), etc.
This booklet will lay out step by step procedures and how they can aid a crafts-person to build templates to build both simple and complicated fabricated parts. Types of materials that can be used with these templates is a combination of flat sheet and round tube our pipe.In order to be successful in the use of this booklet you need to have a good understanding of basic blueprint reading skills, industrial math skill and also basic geometry. Couple this with welding and fabrication skills you can produce a wide variety of fabrications and weldments. This booklet will start off with simple flat patterns and work in to more complex templates for pipe.
Subject areas include use of layout and fabrication tools, structural steel connections and components, chalk line layout, tank layout, ladder layout, stair layout, ring-flange layout, pipefitting fit-up, fall-protection, and rigging.
