Overview

About the Product

The eighth Canadian edition of Electrical Wiring: Commercial is based on the 2018 Canadian Electrical Code and provides a valuable resource to instructors and students alike. Drawing on decades of industry and classroom experience, the authors guide students through the critical tasks and responsibilities required for commercial wiring. Review questions are included at the end of each chapter to summarize the material being covered. The chapters are sequenced to introduce the student to the basic principles and wiring practices contained within a commercial building. Information is included in the text to introduce the reader to the Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) and to fire safety in commercial applications. This text takes the reader through the essential minimum requirements as set forth in the CEC for commercial installations, and often provides further information above and beyond the minimum CEC requirements.

Reviews

“A well put together text with great illustrations and a very good blueprint package all of which is supported with MindTap, I would certainly recommend this text to my colleagues.“
— Nova Scotia Community College Instructor
