DC Pracbox

Practical. Portable. Engaging.

As an electrotechnology training professional, you know that most learners struggle with circuit fundamentals. We have designed the DC pracbox for the DC circuits subjects of electrotechnology training, which will engage your learners in practical learning and help you make your training and assessment compliant.​

What do our customers say?

The problem

for managers

Compliance

If you are a Manager at a training organisation that provides training in electrical or electronics, you know that the most critical aspects that the auditors concentrate on are the compliance and learner journey.

Practical Training

In subjects like DC circuits, you may struggle to be compliant without any practical training. In fact, in our dealings with training organisations, we have found that with a reduction in training time, the first thing that is dropped or condensed is practical training and assessments; this increases your risk of being non-compliant.

Learner's journey

The learners' journey can never be made extraordinary without practical skills that they will need for their future subjects and the industry. Regardless of the reason for not enough practical training, you open yourself up to the risk of being non-compliant and worse, not producing skilled professionals at the end of your courses.

Time

If you are an electrotechnology trainer who wants to provide the best training, the biggest hurdle you probably have is the lack of time. You are required to provide theory and practical, conduct assessments, prepare reports, undertake administration duties like attendance, diary sheets, lesson plans and heaps more. Most of the compliance also rests on your shoulders like evidence of participation, evidence of assessments and outcomes, validation and moderation.

Preparation

In all of this, you still manage to provide training and conduct assessment to the best of your abilities, but you feel that you could have done better only if you had more time. The reality is, something will get affected. Unfortunately, one of the most time-consuming tasks is the preparation for practicals.

Frustration

To make the matter worse for practical training, what if you don't have the appropriate equipment or if you do have the equipment, there is no support or training on how to use it. Do you still feel motivate to do pracs?

The problem

for Trainers

It all comes down to time, support and practical equipment.

The Solution

We have gone through the training package and based on the performance criteria and evidence, required skills and knowledge, critical evidence and range statement for the DC circuits subjects, have identified all the components and parts you would need to be compliant and put most of them in one box. We call this the DC Pracbox (see what you’ll get in the pracbox).
