The Wiring Rules apply to electrical installations in all types of premises and land used by electricity consumers, not just domestic installations. AS/NZS 3000 is called up in the legislation of all Australian states and territories and is therefore mandatory. In 2018 a significant update was made to the standard, aimed at improving safety and efficiency.
AS/NZS 3000 is divided into two parts:
- Part 1: Scope, application and fundamental principles
- Part 2: Installation practices (this section provides a deemed to comply solution)
Over six hours the course examines Part 1 and Part 2 in detail, the extensive changes made in the 2018 edition and how the legislation mandates the use of Australian Standards. (The WH&S Legislation mandates that all designs must be safe for the whole of life of a product).
The course concentrates on the concepts embodied in the Wiring Rules and how these are to be applied in practice. Included in the course are several exercises designed to demonstrate electrical safety principles.
Upon completion, participants should have gained an understanding of the core electrical safety concepts contained in the Wiring Rules and associated standards. They should also be able to use a range of implementation methods to ensure electrical safety.
Who should attend?
- Designers of electrical installations
