ECMN 172 Residential Construction Wiring: Part II

This course is a continuation of ECMN 171 , providing students with hands-on training and practical application of electrical codes and theories as they relate to the design, maintenance, and installation of residential electrical systems. Hands-on laboratory activities will replicate realworld applications as students work through a series of module/shop jobs, gaining experience in areas which include residential power distribution systems, use of metering instruments, terminals, splices, branch circuit requirements, service installations, power circuits, lighting circuits, switching systems, GFCI protections, AFCI requirements, and applicable National Electrical Code requirements. Electrical, workplace, and shop safety is covered in detail, and troubleshooting skills are reinforced throughout the course. The intent of this course is to prepare students for entry-level employment in the electrical construction field. Open only to matriculated Electrical Construction and Maintenance students.
