Electrical Installation

Welcome to Electrical Installation at Blackburn College.

We’re looking forward to you starting at Blackburn College and can’t wait to meet you when the time is right. In the meantime, we know you’ll be excited about starting a College course and thought may like to explore some different activities.

Our team have put together some activities that you can try right now!

Why not have a go in preparation for your College course?

Task 1

Count the number of plug sockets, light switches and light fittings in your house.

Task 2

Estimate how many metres of cable it would take to wire all of these together.

Task 3

Try and identify your consumer unit or fuse box in your home. How many circuits come out of it?

Task 4

Your home runs from a single phase supply, what does that mean?

Watch this:

Task 5 (Renewable Technology)

Look out for renewable technology – How many wind turbines, solar panels, and electric vehicle charging points can you see?

How do you think renewable energy will impact the future role of an Electrician.
