This unit includes the installation of wiring enclosures, cable support systems, cables, protection devices, switchgear, control gear, switchboards, and accessories designed to operate at voltages up to 1,000 volt (V) alternating current (a.c.) or 1,500 V direct current (d.c.).
It covers working safely and to installation standards, routing cables to specified locations, terminating cables and connecting wiring at accessories, matching appliances and accessories with that specified, making required circuit connections and completing the necessary installation documentation.
The skills and knowledge described in this unit require a licence or permit to practice in the workplace where work is carried out on electrical installations which are designed to operate at voltages greater than 50 V a.c. or 120 V d.c.
