Cable Management (WPE03)

Anybody who has ever used wired headphones will know the pain of trying to untangle them. I mean, how do they even get that tangled? You only put them in your pocket for two minutes! So, you can imagine the frustration when dealing with tangled and unorganized cabling at work.

Almost every electrical item you have on your desk has got some sort of wire coming out of it, we’d guess. They need to be kept tidy. Not just because they’ll look nicer that way but also because tidiness makes it easier and safer all round.

By the end of this course you’ll be able to:

• Understand cables and how they work
• Understand the importance of good cable management
• Keep cables organized

Why take this course?

There are several reasons why cables should be organized correctly, but there’s a critical one you need to get it right: poorly organized cables have a risk of fraying and starting a fire. Now, that’s next-level serious. If you have cables on or around your workstation, taking this course will help you get them organized and safe.
