I am an industrial electrician apprentice.  I have been told by instrumentation techs that adruino is a solid option to learn the basics before attending college.

I have no experience building digital electronic systems.  Which kit should I start with and what higher level kits should I move onto afterwards?  Should I complete the basic kit then move onto the engineering kit?

What home study path would you recommend for an amateur trying to gain expertise in systems similar to instrumentation?

Please, give an specific example of an industrial instrumentation such as measuring temperature, pressure and humidity and then show them on a single 4-digit 7-segment display unit one after another at 3-sec interval and record them on SD Card against time stamp at 1-hr interval. If this is your instrumentation, then you need:

1.  Arduino UNO

2.  BME280

3.  MAX7219 based 4xcc-type 7-segment diaply unit

4.  DS3231 RTC

5.  SD Card

Umm, so you want to learn more about this proffesion and electricity?

You can learn the basics from Arduino, for me it was a good place to develop my technical skills when I started learning. After which I wanted to adjust my knowledge and with electricians from Alexandria, I put the theory in practice. They helped me so much, that now I can figure out different problems which are related to electricity.
