Digital Multimeter Basics

If you or your company are looking for ways to build more electrical skills, consider this two-hour online course on Digital Multimeter Basics from Fluke. We developed this course to help multimeter users get more out of their meters. Whether you use a multimeter for basic electrical installation and commissioning, repairs and troubleshooting, or your own personal work, the information in this course will help you get the job done.
Using a multimeter to measure voltage is fairly straight forward, so long as you follow safety precautions, but how about the rest of the functions on the dial? Even the most advanced Fluke customers often feel there are aspects to their meter they could use better.
In this 2-hour online course you will learn:
Standard functions and what they're for
Measurement symbols and their applications
When to use advanced modes
Specifications and what matters
The teachings in this course apply to most multimeter models. They also comply with industry training guidelines for using electrical test instruments. The six lessons use narration, video, interactive activities and illustration to familiarize you with multimeter modes and applications.
