Pages 271

Trevor Linsley has helped many thousands of students to gain success in their study of the 2330 Certificate in Electrotechnical Technology from City & Guilds. With this brand new textbook, he focuses on the essential theory and practical tasks involved in carrying out electrical installation work, to create a thorough yet basic introductory guide.

Ideally suited to students who may prefer a more visual-style of learning than seen in more traditional types of textbook, all examples and calculations are firmly rooted in actual engineering practice, giving the student real-world points of reference ???these are the types of problems and situations that are actually encountered on-site. As such, this text will prove a vital purchase for any student embarking on their Level 2 certificate who needs an overall practical introduction to the subject, or those currently studying at foundation level who may be considering moving into electrical installation in the future.

Building on the practical focus and accessible style used in his market-leading texts on this subject, this new full-colour introduction incorporates an array of learning features all designed to ensure the key concepts in electrical installation work are immediately identifiable and easily understandable.

Trevor Linsley caters precisely for the unit requirements of the 2330 Level 2 Certificate in Electrotechnical Technology from City & Guilds certificate (installation route), covering the three core units of the scheme, along with the Occupational Unit 4 ???Installation (Buildings & Structures). The content is also fully in line with the 2004 version of the IEE Wiring Regulations BS 7671:2001 (incorporating Amendments 1:2002 & 2:2004).

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.
