This highly successful book is now updated in line with the 18th Edition of the Wiring Regulations. Electrical Installation Work provides a topic by topic progression through the areas of electrical installations, including how and why electrical installations are designed, installed and tested. Additional content in this edition includes detail on LED lighting and medical locations. A new appendix contains a glossary of electrical installation work terms, ensuring that readers of all levels of experience can easily grasp every topic.
Brian Scaddan’s subject-led approach makes this a valuable resource for professionals and students on both City & Guilds and EAL courses. This approach also makes it easy for those who are learning the topic from scratch to get to grips with it in a non syllabus-led way.
The book is already widely used in education facilities across the UK. It has been published for almost 40 years, and in its current form since 1992.
