Electrical Installation Work

Brian Scaddan

ISBN 0750666196
Pages 432

Electrical Installation Work covers both theory and practice for the trainee who wants to understand not only how, but why electrical installations are designed, installed and tested in particular ways. Brian Scaddan's approach encourages independent learning with self-assessment questions provided throughout.

In previous editions, Electrical Installation Work has become well established as the leading text for the City & Guilds course 2360 Parts 1 and 2, and helped thousands of students and apprentices achieve success in gaining their electrical installation qualifications. Now in its fifth edition, this text has been restructured and updated to cater for the new 2330 Certificate in Electrotechnical Technology from City & Guilds at Levels 2 and 3 (Installation route ???buildings and structures), also meeting the requirements of the Level 2 NVQ in Installing Electrotechnical Systems (2356), and Level 3 NVQs in Electrotechnical Services.

Brought fully in line with the IEE Wiring Regulations BS 7671:2001 (incorporating Amendments 1:2002 & 2:2004), this book will also form an invaluable source of reference in every day working practice for electrical installation engineers based in industry.
