Chapter 2 is a critical Chapter of the NEC for all working electricians. The changes in this Chapter are among the most complex as well as having some of the most far-reaching effects of any in the 2020 NEC. This class will supply students with a substantive and engaging discussion that will help them understand and apply the revised codes.
Every significant change to Chapter 2 (Wiring and Protection) for the 2020 National Electrical Code is presented in this class, using a "cut-and-paste" user-friendly approach that shows what text has been removed, changed, or added. This is followed by a discussion of the reason behind and impact of each change, with additional information supplied where it helps illuminate the nature of the change. Discussion is based in part on the reasons provided by the relevant code-making panel that oversaw the change and any vital contributions to the discussion from working electricians, manufacturers, and industry analysts. The goal is to express every change in clear language, to focus on how the changes should be applied by a working electrician, and to provide the resources to explore the change more fully for those who wish to do so.
