This unit covers the production of detailed electrical drawings, drawing sets and documentation. It includes safe working practices; interpreting technical data and specifications; using advanced computer-aided systems and commands and appropriate drafting peripheral systems, equipment and tools to develop detailed drawings. It also includes applying knowledge of electrical equipment design drawing methods, techniques, procedures and protocols and documenting design, storing and retrieving data, and producing related documentation for presentation of preliminary and final drafts for verification.
