Overview

About the Product

Featuring the latest industry standards and procedures, the eighth Canadian edition of Electrical Wiring: Residential, provides comprehensive, authoritative coverage of the 2018 Canadian Electrical Code, as well as a thorough grounding in electrical knowledge and applications. Drawing on decades of industry and classroom experience, the authors guide students step by step through the critical tasks and responsibilities required of today’s professional electricians in both new construction and existing homes. Vivid illustrations coordinate with the latest code regulations to provide further clarity, and foldout plans at the back of the text give students hands-on practice applying code requirements.

Reviews

“Students have difficulty interpreting the Code and how it relates to layout. The Canadian Code uses a language that most have trouble understanding. This book is doing a good job at relating topics to specific code rules.“
— Fanshawe College Instructor
