C'mon Steve, calm down, that's the way threads work in forums like this, they do stray OT every so often, nothing you can do about it.

I do see your point though, and would suggest that maybe you guys would be better starting a new thread if you have questions, or if you just want to chat, that way you can all try and keep this thread as a source of into about the original topic.

no these are required only when you get here mostly for the licence course /exam and then as every other aussie trained spark you can throw them away and do what you like ( or so it would seem at times )

For the practical exam,

but it doesnt hurt to swat up before hand

if it is anything like the uk test you will have to wire up a socket and a two way switch with some bonding.

for the theory side revise on resistors in series and parrallel and also power factors.

in the practical you will do these as extras


1, safe isolation
2, measuring resitors in series and parrallel
3, wire up an DOL starter with two stop and two start buttons but you use leads

Smile Re: practical exam theory

mmm the dreaded theory side
i would guess that 90% of us have forgotten 90% of what we learned at tech,

so the reason behind this thread is a sort of revision of what we already know

so i`ll start of with DOL starters and a wiring diagram if you what info / wiring diagrams please ask via PM /email otherwise this thread will be chocker with chit chat and it`ll slow down others wanting info

Hello Steve
can i just say a big THANKS for all this information, my hubby will be able to relax (a little!). He has his practical in July in London and is a bit nervy! Never used a forum before and this is BRILLIANT: i realise that we are not alone!!!
