    Hi

    The best and only book in my opinion would be SANS 10142-1 Edition 2

    If you don't have it, and understand it, you should not be even thinking about touching electrical

    I'm coming from the UK where we have different options for domestic electrical installers, installation electricians and maintenance electricians. When I last looked you had SABS 0142 wiring regulations. I have obtained a copy of the SANS 10142 as recommended by you to read. I am very up to date with industrial equipment but I imagine domestic installation will have particularly stringent requirements in the RSA.

    Hi

    The SABS was replaced with SANS - The wiring regulations whether industrial , commercial , domestic all remain the same.

    There's no 'limited scope' or 'Part-P' shortcut to becoming an electrician in South Africa. There's also no OSG type guide book either, just the regs.

    Thank you for your demystifying link. I have noticed mentioned a Single Phrase Electrical Tester , Installation Electrician and Master Installation Electrician. How do you progress from one to the other?

    Hi

    Registering as a Single , Installation or Master depends on your qualifications and the industry that you have experience in.

    I have attached the information Brochure on the requirements by Department of Labour
