Overview
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
  • Part 2: Installation practices (this section provides a 'deemed-to-comply' solution).

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.

I was engaged throughout  the presentation.  The facilitator have good knowledge and practical experience.

Participant, 2021
Very engaging presentation. In particular, earthing and circuit protection was most useful to me. Particularly good introduction to this very important standard - very practical explanation of how this is applied in practice.
Luciano, 2020
Really enjoyed that the changes between the superseded standard were highlighted. Great experience and well-taught class. Difficult topic to keep engaging. John did a great job.
