The performance of the electronic instruments is depended on the human factor, technical ability and reliability of the instruments. As such, the technical skills of personnel must be nurtured and developed to the fullest potential. Thus, it is equally important to have proper maintenance and calibration programme for the electronic instruments and scientific equipment in order to produce accurate data/results. Proper maintenance will also ensure the durability of the instruments, has proven cost effective and safe working condition.
This 3-day course is designed to provide sound understanding of the fundamental concepts of maintenance and trouble shooting of the electronic instruments for technical personnel. The knowledge acquired will enhance their operational effectiveness in maintenance aspects, failure identification and rectification and trouble shooting. It covers wide range of maintenance aspects including the selection of test instruments and proper operational procedures.
