EHC400 – Electrified Hardware

EHC400 – Electrified Hardware

One of the most important steps in detailing today’s projects is creating the low voltage wiring drawings / diagrams and related documentation for door openings with electrified hardware. In this course you will learn to use a free downloadable computer drawing program (Libre Office Draw) to create your drawings and will return to your workplace with the ability to create drawings for your projects.
