In the working environment terminating a distribution board is what all electricians take the most pride in.
Having evidence of a neat distribution board may make you stand out above the rest when looking for work.
fe Jake wilmot 18.6.14
After numerous attempts by apprentices and full-time learners, these was the only boards that worked first time.

Although it is now common practice to install Combi-boilers where all components are contained in one unit.
Many older properties still have S-Plan heating systems which often need servicing and maintaining.

Panel wiring companies purely build, wire and connect panels.
this is a full time job for many people.
install two 2 gang 2-way switches and 2 lamps.
each lamp to be controlled from both switches. to be wired loop-in at light method.
steel conduit puzzle
pvc/pvc lighting
sy cable
swa cable
allow enough length for whatever you are terminating in to
Trim the steel braiding to 44mm
Then split and twist into two tails
Place a brass washer
on to the gland
Wrap each
braid clockwise
Place another brass washer to sandwich the braids
why sy cable?
SY cable has fine stranded conductors which are the most suitable when connecting to vibrating equipment e.g. motors.
Strip the outer
clear PVC sheath
remember your knife training!!!
recycle all cables in the green bin
Feed the two braids down the 2 slots
then tuck in to the opposite slot
The gland is now ready to terminate in to an enclosure
Wrap tape around the cable
Remove the outer
sheath using a knife
Using a knife remove
the sheath covered in tape.
Position the armourings just before the gland threads
Use a locknut to fix
the gland and 'banjo' to the enclosure.
Why steel wire armoured cable?
The steel wire armourings provide excellent mechanical protection. this cable is used in industrial environments and can be buried in a garden.
using a junior hack-saw, cut around the cable half way in to the steel armourings
The armourings should now snap off
very easily!!!!
Place the shroud and gland nut on the cable
Spread out the armourings
Tighten the gland nut on to the gland
Ensure all wires are clamped and not crossed
Use a 6mm nut and bolt to connect the banjo
recycle all cables in the green bin
recycle all cables in the green bin
recycle all cables in the green bin
First fix conduit
and threading
FP200 and PVC conduit
standard socket circuits in
pvc/pvc cable

Data Engineer is a full time job.
As a Data engineer you will install containment then wire and connect data cables.
The containment will be the same as you have learnt on this course.
recycle all cables in the green bin
