This Unit has been designed to provide you with an opportunity to develop your knowledge and understanding of the design of electrical installations. If you already have some working knowledge of electrical installations, some of these design concepts may be familiar to you. If, on the other hand, this is your first contact with electrical installations and their design, the Unit should provide you with an understanding of the design methods and their relationship to the relevant British Standard, current BS 7671.
Candidates should have a broad knowledge and understanding of the design of electrical power distribution systems, the installation of electrical wiring systems, apparatus and cabling and the testing of electrical installations. This may be evidenced by possession of Electrical Installation Units from the National Certificate(s) in Electrical Engineering
