Been wiring up the Sheds: (all in conduit)
<did go via a air vent to get in to the house)
40A Fuse going off to a Sub-Main fuse box.

32A for a Ring done in 2.5, for a washing machine and a tumble dryer and 6 sockets for my work shed.
3xFSU built in to the Ring that lead off for the Tumble Dryer, washing Machine and a PC/Monitor.
6A for the Lighting system for the Shed and Toilet.


FAULT #1 i didnt get single core cables so i had to cut them open and use them that way, but i did buy a single core CPC. The fault i made, (and will fix) is i left the sheaf on the 6mm cable coming from the Main Fuse box to the Sub Main (this would lower the amp so i need to take off the sheaf and put in a new CPC)

The Sub Main Fuse Box is a IP55


Basically i want to know if i got every thing correct because i want to join up with NAPIT.. and with everyone, you want to make sure havn't misted off any thing. Also got to show that i can test, im not 100% what I've got to do with NAPIT

Why not buy a copy of the regs book and perhaps the suitable guidance notes, grab a large glass of wine and have a good look ?

You are not clear in what your query is.
40a fuse for a 6mm cable - does the 40A protect the cable? We cannot tell as you dont say what cable you have used.
Have you really used a fusebox?
You say a sheaf from the cable, do you mean sheath? Is this the armour from swa? Probably not, as you say you have used conduit.

Post back with a better description of what you want / have done, and use the correct terms, so there is no confusion.

You will need City and Guilds 2382 and a QCF Level 3 qualification in inspection and testing for NAPIT approval. I assume from your posts you do not have these?

i dont like forums as tend to turn to bitchyness

You dont need 2382 you need to be working towards 2394/5 i did ask NAPIT

I also CANT drink .. dose not agree with me
I am guessing you have a problem with WINE as you keep bringing it up.. you know you can get help for your drinking problems
as for 2382 i didnt really look at the book when doing the test ..


I was just asking to MAKE SURE.. i was a FOOL to ask form such a FORUM

GOD BE WITH YOU ALL

You most certainly do need a 2382 qualification. If you use the search box on this site and type in EAS you will find the requirements to be a QS which are required for any of the competent person schemes eg NAPIT , ELECSA or NICEIC.

AngelLaHash,

You are not a fool to ask from such a forum.

You will always be helped on here but you will often be helped with guidance. Being spoon-fed doesn't help.

You haven't told us how far away the shed is so we can't comment on your chosen In, what your sockets are going to be used for, so we can't comment on your selected Ib, what you will do with the single cores that you expose between your conduit and the 40A fuse,so we can't comment on selection and erection, what CSA your extra CPC is, so we can't comment on the adiabatic for you, where or if you have used type B/C/D/RCBO protection, so we can't help you with the discrimination, and so on.

If you run away from a place like this and stick your head in the sand then sure you will become an electrician, but only a mediocre one.

Stick about on here and your learning curve will rocket and that in turn will be the greatest tool you own.

Brush yourself off and make sure you stick around.

Zs

Sorry zs your correct... think I need to ask people in person, so I can express more,

I find forums funny places, with people suggesting drink and drugs (due to the name)


2382 17th edition done, I get it mixed up with 2392 testing at level 2
If you had read all my posts you might of noticed.

As Zs says, more infomation needed;

Distance from 40a fuse to shed submain
Type and BS no of 40a fuse
Type of cable to shed submain
Reference method of cable to submain
RCD protection for sockets

Are you stripping the sheath off T+E or summat?

Ban All Sheds was never on this forum.

You are not suggesting that they were the sam person surely?
