This course introduces students to commercial wiring. It begins with the planning of the commercial installation by using blueprints, layout, and calculations. They will be required to calculate load for branch circuits, feeders and the electrical service. Wiring methods, luminaires, motors and overcurrent protection will also be covered. The National Electrical Code requirements will be used and explained to understand how they are applied to commercial installations. The labs will consist of bending conduit and use hand tools for wiring methods and practices.
