Some areas covered are: fundamental electrical quantities, blue print reading, conduit bending, national electric code, motors, measuring instruments, and much more. Residential wiring begins with splicing wires, wiring circuits, lights and receptacles. Commercial wiring practices are used to wire restaurants, school buildings, public buildings, malls, hospitals, etc. industrial wiring consists of large power supplies, motor controls, transformers, and most of the electrical equipment used in today's industrial plants.
