“Periodic Inspections” by Gary Andrew St Clair is a comprehensive manual for all aspects of electrical installations. It is available as an eBook download or can be purchased on Amazon (UK) and other bookstores worldwide. The book contains over 250 pages of concise, easy to understand instructions with technical drawings and schematics. I purchased and read the first couple of chapters before writing down the topics I needed to research and then to try and implement the information into my own electrical installation work.
