Cliff talks Electrical modules and Virtual reality scenarios in latest blog
This week’s post is on module 26 Electricity, some of which we covered earlier in module 4 Key Plumbing Principles.
I completed this module without much difficulty as it was more of a recap and when we covered this subject in module 4 I went to the trouble of getting a copy of the 17th Edition Wiring Regulations and part P of the building regulations – thrilling reading as you can imagine.
My brother is an electrician so I was able to pick his brains on the subject and as the majority of the module was dealing with domestic electrical installation, earth continuity, testing and decommissioning. It was very useful to have someone with the amount of experience that my brother has. Not only that but he has all the testing equipment, so I got to have a go at the real thing under his watchful eyes which is the way I learn best.
What I am struggling with is the electrical scenario CD which I find very frustrating, maybe because I am using quite an old laptop and the software runs very slowly, A wise man once said “perseverance is preferable” so I will battle on with it until I get it cracked.
I have three scenarios to complete before I move on to module 27, so it might be some time before I get to that. On the other hand it may just become apparent and I’ll finish all three in a few hours.
I have still two faults to find and three fault codes to rectify, so I am going to sign off for now I might do an update during the week when I complete all three.
