This class presents every significant change made to Chapters 4 and 6 in the 2020 National Electrical Code® (NEC-2020), the two Chapters that address electrical equipment.
Chapter 4 is one of the core Chapters in the NEC. It contains some of the most widely applied as well as the most frequently updated provisions of the NEC regarding the safe and reliable installation of equipment for general use.
Chapter 6 governs electrical connections to specialized equipment. Since this specialized equipment often sees the greatest innovation and most rapid changes of any in the electrical field, it also sees a host of NEC revisions during every code renewal cycle, including the 2017-2020 code review cycle.
The class also covers important code revisions (or newly added codes) on:
- A New Type of Fixture Wire - FFHH-2;
- Rating and Use of General-Use Snap Switches Dimmers and Control Switches;
