In Chapter 1 (First Fix Stage), you will learn how PVC, metallic and flexible conduits are installed either inside concrete slabs or in different types of walls and ceilings. Moreover, you will learn how cable trays and trunks are installed, explaining their various uses

In Chapter 2, and as part of the Second Fix Stage, you will learn how wires must be pulled inside conduits. Pulling of wires must be done considering the conduit fill ratio that must be calculated before pulling wires which will be explained in detail in this chapter.

Following the next chapter, you will come across the electric panels, distribution board (DB) installation and wire termination rules. Here you will also learn how distribution boards and capacitor banks are installed. In addition to that, you will be able to find out how wires are pulled to the panels and how dressing and termination are done.

By reaching this stage of the course, the Cable and Wire Testing chapter will guide you on how to test cables and wires using the Megger testing device. In particular, this chapter will show you practically how to perform the Megger (Insulation) test of cables and wires using the megger device through real videos performed during the site execution stage to ensure the quality of cables and wires before energizing the project.

In the last chapter of this course (Third Fix Stage), and after the first, second and testing stages are explained, you will learn how light fixtures and power sockets are installed in ceilings and walls to finalize the electrical installations before the energisation and operation of the project.

Who is this course for? – Electrical graduates and freshers, electricians, electrical designers and operators, site engineers & technicians.

Electrical Designing and Drafting Course (Bundle – 2 Courses)

This course introduces the student to the process of designing residential and commercial projects. After completing this course, you will have high confidence in your practical work and start working on your design projects using AutoCAD. Or if you are fresher, you can start your career as a professional in this competitive world.

Students will learn various electrical calculations and have an access to the comprehensive chapter for learning AutoCAD from scratch to professional level (60 lessons + real project included in DWG). All calculations and explanations are as per the NEC and other international codes and standards.

  • Basics of electrical: The basics of electrical engineering, basic formulae, types of load, operating voltage levels, etc.
  • Basic formulae: Some most important formulae plus a short assignment for you.
  • Codes, Standards & Lux Levels: Internationally acceptable codes & standards, lux level required for any area for lighting design.
  • Illumination Design: Types of lighting lamps, types of the lighting system, Kelvin Color Temp., CRI.
  • Basics of Air Conditioner: For small projects, you will learn the basics of A/C.
  • Circuit Breakers: What is CB, types of CB, working & operation, calculation, etc.
  • Capacitor Banks: The need for a capacitor bank, the benefits, and how to calculate the size of the capacitor bank.
  • Electrical Designing: Calculation of lighting/raw power socket, fans, no. of lighting fixtures, sizing of A/C, load scheduling/balancing, distribution board, etc.
  • Electrical Motors: Types of motor and their application, starting methods, starting current, etc.
  • Electrical Transformer: Transformer parts, classification, cooling methods, winding insulation class, faults, size calculation, etc.
  • Diesel Generator: DG parts of DG, ATS, transformer classification, DG faults, size calculation, etc.
