Shame they didn’t have these forums when I was doing the c course, there may have been more than just the 2 of us left on the course :laughing:
Do you mean the old C cert C&G technician graded, the one I did back in the 70's. If so, that was some course and used to be worth a great deal.....and now, all the JIB give me on a gold card is regs and T&I.
Regarding forums, I don't think we'd even got our hands on a calculator.:(

Yes that’s the one!
I did it in about 94/95..
it was very hard and required a lot of work and very good lecturers...
Probably why it ended up getting scrapped..
It was a well respected qualification which unfortunately doesn’t seem to have much clout these days apart from those that are more old school

When I did mine late 80's/90's we used acetate overlays sometimes today I think that they should still use it as with doing it with AutoCAD they still manage to clash sockets behind rads etc.

They'd already downgraded it by then, believe it or not. Still a great qualification to have, though.
Three basic sections, Regs, electrical principles and project.
Some thought they'd hit the heights with the 'B cert' (Approved Electrician)

And no internet for doing research, we had to get all the catalogues out, trawl through pages of specs, all calculations done from our own books..
And we all wonder why the trade has drastically dumbed down... to quote Mr Trump... SAD

Compare that to the farce of an exam I did last week.. 18th edition, multiple choice and you take the regs in with you..
The most difficult task was having to multiply a number by itself due to the calculators we had to use having no square function

Hi John,

I'm currently doing the same project.

The hotel rooms are like premier inns rooms. sockets either side of beds, 2 double socket on table for tv, kettle etc & socket by the sofa, heater fcu by the door & towel rail fcu outside of the bathroom.
CU in each room by the door.

when i get back home i'll convert my visio file to pdf & pm you so you can take a look.

maybe we can buddy up on this & throw ideas about?

Your training provider should give you a template form?

Here's what we were given.

J-Notation aka complex numbers was what I remember about the Part C.

Vector and Phasor ratios.


I don’t want to seem disrespectful but some of the lads here need to have a go. Thats the only way you learn.

What is it that you're struggling with specifically? I don't think anyone would possibly give you a completed hotel assignment (that not what you're asking for I know but in putting it out there).

Show us where you're up to, what you're struggling with and we'll try and guide in the right direction.

Think about it logically;

Isolation for maintenance; well that just screams plant room (hazarding a guess at the location of this assignment - Swimming pool?)

Switching for mechanical maintenance; again this screams to bear near any machinery or plant

Functional switching; every room/area within the complex to some degree

This is great. I need a greater understanding of functional switching will need to read up on that. What’s an example for further requirements?
