Wireman's License Examination Preparation



Passing the Electrical Wireman Exam has never been easier. With this preparatory course, students will bridge the gap between theory and practical and understand the "reason” for the required installation.

An Electrician must always refer to the statutory codes and standards required for all low voltage installations. While the standards may seem robust and detailed, this programme will allow the Electrician to have the basic understanding of the typical installation standard required to safely and successfully wire a house and commercial building.

This programme will also provide examples for load calculations in addition to understanding key codes and standards requirements such as the TTS 171: PART 1 - 2015 & TTEC Wiring for Light & Power.
