Residential Wiring

residential wiring

Residential wiring provides a solid background of electrical principles as well as a basic understanding of the National Electric Code requirements. A study of Ohmís and Watts Laws as applied to basic series, parallel, and series-parallel circuits along with motor and transformer load calculations are included. The class content is concerned primarily for Residential installations, however many of the principles will also apply to commercial and industrial wiring practices,  such as conduit bending and a brief introduction into industrial motor controls.

Students will be given an opportunity to acquire certifications in Contren Core Safety and OSHA 10, which are nationally recognized certification programs. The Contren Core Safety Exam can be used as a verified credit if the student passes an on-line assessment of the course. Each student will receive three high school and three  Danville Community College credits for completion of this course.
