AS/NZS 3000 - The Wiring Rules

Start time: 9.00am AEST. Learn about AS/NZS 3000 - The Wiring Rules and how you can apply the standard to comply with the relevant legislation.

The Wiring Rules apply to electrical installations in all types of premises and land that electricity consumers use. AS/NZS 3000 is mandatory. WHS legislation and its state equivalents mandate that all designs must be safe for the life of a product. The most recent updates to the standard aim to improve safety and efficiency.

In this course, you'll gain a detailed understanding of AS/NZS 3000's two parts:

  • Part 1: Scope, application and fundamental principles

You'll also cover:

  • the extensive changes made in the most recent edition of AS/NZS 3000
  • how legislation requires the use of Australian Standards
  • the concepts in The Wiring Rules and their practical application
  • exercises that show electrical safety principles.

After completing this course, you'll understand the core electrical safety concepts in The Wiring Rules and related standards. You'll also be able to use a range of methods to ensure electrical safety when implementing The Wiring Rules.
