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.
AS/NZS 3000 - The Wiring Rules

An Engineering Education Australia Workshop:

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.

Learning outcomes:

  • Comply with Australian legislation
  • Ensure designs are safe to implement
  • Understand the core electrical safety concepts outlined in AS/NZS 3000 and associated standards
  • Keep up-to-date with the latest edition of AS/NZS 3000
  • Apply the standard in practice and use a range of methods to ensure electrical safety
  • Understand the legislation that makes AS/NZS 3000 mandatory
