The Installation Checklists (2023 NEC) course focuses on installation methods that electrical inspectors look for during commercial or residential inspections. This training explains how Colorado electricians can prepare to pass these inspections.

The four-hour course, which is approved by the Department of Regulatory Agencies, covers updated 2023 NEC requirements for installing wiring underground, above the ceiling, and on rooftops. Also included are comprehensive checklist items for rough inspections, final electrical inspections, and installing and grounding panelboards, services, and transformers.

Learning Objectives:

By the end of this course, students will:

• Have a better understanding of what electrical inspectors are looking for on the jobsite

• Be prepared to install electrical systems that will pass the underground, rough, above ceiling, rooftop, service, panelboard, transformer, and final electrical inspections

• Be able to respond to electrical inspector requirements during different phases of a project 

After each code or topic section of the course is a multiple-choice review question. To receive credit for the course, students must complete all 50 multiple-choice questions and earn a total score of at least 70%.

To make sure students spend enough time studying the material, the course is timed. Students are required to spend at least 200 active minutes in the course (50-minute credit hours).
