Mapped closely to the learning outcomes of City & Guilds and EAL exams
Coverage of Level 2 and Level 3 units in one volume
Fully aligned to the 3rd Amendment of the 17th Edition of the IET Wiring Regulations
Brian Scaddan's Electrical Installation Work explains in detail how and why electrical installations are designed, installed and tested.
You will be guided in a logical, topic by topic progression through all the areas required to complete City & Guilds and EAL courses. Rather than following the order of the syllabus, this approach will make it easy to quickly find and learn all you need to know about individual topics, and makes this title an indispensable resource for electrical trainees of all ability levels, both during their training and once qualified.
With a wealth of colour pictures, clear layout, and numerous diagrams and figures providing visual illustration, mastering difficult concepts will be a breeze.
