Basic Electrical Installation Work

Trevor Linsley

ISBN 0750666242
Pages 224

Basic Electrical Installation Work has helped thousands of students to gain their first qualification in electrical installation. Now in its fourth edition, this book has been completely restructured to provide a specific match to the requirements of the Installation route of the 2330 Level 2 Certificate in Electrotechnical Technology from City & Guilds, and will also prove an essential purchase for students of the Level 2 NVQ in Installing Electrotechnical Systems (2356).

With a concise and practical approach, Trevor Linsley presents a complete resource for the 2330 Certificate, covering the three core units of the scheme, along with the Occupational Unit 4 ???Installation (Buildings & Structures). An additional chapter Lighting ???a key area of electrical installation work ???is also included for reference.

This highly illustrated text features worked examples and exercises with answers to create an easily accessible student book, ideal for self-directed study. The content has been brought fully in line with the 2004 version of the IEE Wiring Regulations BS 7671:2001 (incorporating Amendments 1:2002 & 2:2004), and features new sections on Health & Safety, Employment Rights and Responsibilities, Personal Protective Equipment, and Safety Regulations, reflecting the emphasis of the 2330 Certificate in these particular areas.

Formerly Senior Lecturer at Blackpool & Fylde College, as well as Head of the NVQ Assessment Centre, Trevor Linsley is a best-selling author in electrical installation.

Curriculum Support Pack - ISBN 0750669616
Used alongside the students???texts, Basic Electrical Installation Work and Advanced Electrical Installation Work, this pack offers an essential suite of teaching resource material and photocopiable handouts for the compulsory units of the 2330 Certificate in Electrotechnical Technology from City & Guilds, with a chapter-by-chapter match to the units of the electrical installation pathway at Levels 2 and 3. Coverage is given to the core units of the 2330 syllabus, along with the occupational unit in the electrical installation pathway at Level 2, plus the two occupational units in the electrical installation pathway at Level 3.
