Written in partnership with the Home Builders Institute and endorsed by the National Association of Home Builders, this outstanding resource covers all areas of residential wiring that are required of an entry-level electrician. The principles and practices used in the installation of residential electrical wiring systems are embraced from start to finish in a way that clearly explains what needs to be done and also how to do it. Content is organized the way a typical residential wiring project is undertaken, covering the major areas of preparing and planning a job, service entrances and equipment, rough-in and trim-out, and maintaining/troubleshooting a residential electrical wiring system. This framework of organized learning educates readers on the application of electrical codes and theory while also providing the "soft skills" needed for working successfully with other people in the residential construction industry. Create a direct link between your education/training program and the residential construction industry! Training materials are now available for many of the residential crafts based on skill standards developed by the nation's leading builders and educators. The result of a strategic partnership between the National Association of Home Builder's Home Builders Institute and Delmar Learning, the Residential Construction Academy Series is the perfect way to teach essential workplace skills to people new to the building trades. Ideal for use in vocational programs, workforce development programs, professional associations, and trade unions, all materials are based on industry standards. The Residential Construction Academy also offers credentialing for programs using the skill standards and materials, along with a national registry of students who have successfully completed participating programs. The goal is a workforce that is skilled, knowledgeable, and able to meet the needs of the industry today and well into the future.
