This lesson is so much more than a "picture on a page." It contains over 5 hours of clearly explained video material. You will quickly learn the essential, fundamental elements of blueprint reading that you will need to do your job. It contains a zip file so that you can print our your own FULL-SIZE (24" by 36") 34 page set of commercial blueprints from a 3600 square foot build out. This is the perfect sized job where the student will be exposed to a wide variety of situations without getting overwhelmed by highly specialized and seldom used applications. You will learn how to Navigate and Cross-Reference between the pages easily, a very essential part of electrician training. You will get thorough training on the Mechanical pages, the Panel Schedules, and often over-looked pages like the Furniture Floor Plan and the Door and Window Schedules. Knowledge of these things helps you solve problems before they become problems. Installing wiring will become much easier after learning this material. There is also a special section on Red-Line Drawings. We put the plans in your hands. The rest it up to you.
Just click on the "Extras" tab to the right and download the zip file with the set of blueprints to your computer. Download it in a place that you will be able to find it easily.
It is important to go through the lesson from start to finish. Please
avoid the temptation to jump right to the electrical pages. You will
need the previous material to thoroughly understand how the electrical system is drawn in this set of prints.
Hello, I have been doing electrical work for over 20 years. The most enjoyable part of my job has always been to teach an apprecntice who is eager to learn. I finally found the formula to do this on video just as well as if I were standing right next to you.
When I'm not using tools, I like to cycle, play water sports, and practice tai chii. I like to travel and learn languages also.
