In the modern era, electronic security has gained prominence in protecting assets. Most security-related tasks are performed electronically with more ease and high efficiency which means an overview of the basic principles of electronics is crucial.

Participants will learn how electricity is produced, types of electricity and important information about electrical circuits. They will be taught about the basic formulas that are used in the field of electronics to figure out the relationship between power, voltage, resistance, and current. By the end of the course, learners will have a good understanding of the principles behind electronic security systems and the technologies that power them
