BACKGROUND
This practical application task tests your ability to apply the knowledge and skills acquired in the
Electrical Infrastructure and Construction Level 3. The work required of you in this Integrated
Summative Assessment Task (ISAT) is an important and compulsory component of your studies.
You are required to:
Study the task carefully.
Note the time allocations per task.
Pay careful attention to the mark allocated per section and the total.
Study the resources required.
Note the elements of the Assessment Tools that will be used to evaluate your
performance in each subtask.

This is to ensure that you prepare sufficiently for the

conduct of the ISAT.


DESCRIPTION OF THE TASK
Carry out the installation work on the surface of the wooden panel, according to FIGURE 1
below. The ISAT consists of four subtasks.
SUBTASK 1: Planning and dimensioning
SUBTASK 2: Conduit work
SUBTASK 3: Wiring work
SUBTASK 4: Cable ends made off

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE TASK

SUBTASK 1: Planning and dimensioning


1.

Measure the dimensions as indicated on FIGURE 1 and mark off on the panel.

2.

Use the installation work diagram (FIGURE 1) and draw the line circuit of the conduit
pipes.

3.

Check whether conductors of different circuits will reach a common destination.

4.

Mount the components on to the wooden panel.

5.

Call your lecturer to assess this stage.

cable.

4.

The outer insulation of the surfix cable must not extend for more than 8mm inside the plug
box.

The installation layout must be so arranged that the conduits do not cross each other.

6.

Do not secure switches, plugs and lights to the metal or PVC boxes.

7.

Call your lecturer to assess this stage

SUBTASK 4: Cable ends made off


1.

Carefully remove the insulation on armoured cable.
