About this course

Installing a safe electrical system begins with a well-planned electrical drawing. Construction projects require work drawings and specifications to guide electricians in installing electrical equipment. Besides being a customer requirement, these plans and drawings provide specific instruction to electricians. Standard symbols and lines are used to represent the different types of material, components, conduits, and circuit connections. Reading and interpreting these drawings accurately is therefore an important skill for electricians and helpful to others.

Training Approach and Method

Electrical drawings contain a complex set of symbols and interconnection notation that will be explained by the trainer. If you wish to install, maintain or repair electrical systems our course will improve your confidence in reading drawings to understand the layout of components and create new distribution systems and circuits. If you provide a drawing and the machine it relates to course can be ‘tailored’ to suit your needs.

Course Objectives

On completion of this course you will understand how to

Describe the various terms associated with electrical drawings
Identify the plans and drawings that are included in electrical drawings
Discuss the uses of electrical test equipment such as grip-on ammeter, megger, multi-meter
