Practical Electrical Wiring Standards - National Rules for Electrical Installations - ET 101:2008

THE WORKSHOP

Internationally there has been steady progress towards the harmonisation of electrical wiring standards. European standards are based on the international IEC 364 under the umbrella of Harmonisation Document HD 384. The format of these is reflected in the ETCI national rules ET 101: 2008 and the UK IEE wiring regulations BS 7671:2008.

This workshop is designed to provide up to date information and training on the current edition of National Rules ET 101: 2008. It will consist of in-depth teaching on all aspects of the national rules and their application with many practical examples and sample design calculations. The workshop includes references to safety, maintenance, inspection and testing. In addition, it provides a summary of some of the basic principles necessary for a good understanding of electrical installation technology.
