Completely up to date with the 2014 Edition of the National Electrical Code, Residential Construction Academy: House Wiring delivers the latest and best practices in residential electrical wiring. This vividly illustrated, full-color text is based on the HBI National Skill Standards that cover the skill sets necessary to achieve a first job in construction or as an electrician.
The text provides thorough coverage of "green" topics, including:
- Sustainable building practices
- Alternative energy systems
- And much more!
"From Experience" sections address common residential wiring practices and scenarios, while "Caution" boxes emphasize the ongoing importance of safety. In addition to a hands-on student workbook/lab manual, the text also points the reader to an all-new 3D immerse simulation performance 'game' to help learners prepare for real-world practice.
