    Thanks to DaveA for doing the deed.

    My only desire for doing this, is to empower competent electricians.
    Guys, take your trade very seriously.
    It is regulated by law.
    Take the time to study the regulations.
    Write the exams.
    It's over to you.


    Note from Admin:
    Where to find the latest list of past papers.
    Over the years this thread has had many replies, and the list of past papers has been updated. Unfortunately this means that it has become difficult for newcomers to identify the best / latest list. So I'll try to keep this spot updated with the location of what seems to be the latest useful post listing past papers.

    Right now that seems to be here.

    I am registering for paper 1 today.

    The lecturer, the people form department of education and the Technisa people all say the same thing, due to the volume of work, it is recommended to do one paper per tri-mester.

    Havind said that, I am also buying a pack of old exam paper 1's. If Dave could pm me a way to get them to him to put them up on the site I will send them.

    I can also send the syllabus showing excactly what is need to be learned for papers 1 and two as well as the masters installation syllabus.

    Thanks for the old 2nd papers

    I registered a week before, but guys is a bit hard to study here in Namibia. 1. No enough resources. 2. Work volume. 3. No syllabus of what i am expected to learn for paper 1 and 2. Is it possible for you guys to send me old paper 1 question paper(solved if possible) and the syllabus, just to lighten up my studies

    Installation Rules

    Hi
    As I have mentioned before when I was preparing for the exams I was advised to know the definitions could be worth 30% then section 6 which deals with the design of a installation is covered in the first paper. Section 7 which is the practical side is dealt with in the second paper then get to know how to estimate loads, current carrying capacity's of cables,voltage drop that should get you 60% enough for a pass which is 50% or unless you are aiming for 100% good luck then again correct me if I am wrong I wrote in 94 things could of changed since then.
    Cheers Mike.

    I have emailed Dave the syllabus as it is since august 2009.
    It has changed a lot with things like the electrical machinery act, the construction regulations, and the ohs act coming into it ( paper one). They have also included some other sans codes like handling of cables etc.

    Not all of the above just sections.

    BTW these can be downloaded for free from the department of labours website, I will post links a bit later or tommorrow if I get the time. Just make sure you get the latest ammendment.

    The syllabus I posted was implemented in may 2009, with the first exam being august same year.

    I went and fetched an exam pack from the college today, I will try and scan it in this weekend and send to dave. The papers I have start April 2003 and the last is 21 july 2010.

    I am only going to send from august 2009 till the last one august 2010 ( 4 papers). They dont have answers tho, BUT It doesnt look like you will need them, a lot of true and false and fill in the blanks type questions.

    One thing I am so happy about is that definitions is no longer 30 marks.
