The electrical equipment donated by Schneider Electric Kenya includes materials regularly used by future electricians in their day-to-day roles. This includes drives, a professional low voltage switchboard, electrical fault locating kits, short circuit protection, and earth leakage equipment. The donation allows students to gain hands-on experience and acquire skills directly applicable to real-world scenarios, providing them with a competitive edge as they prepare for their future careers.
