Installing Services (2023 NEC)

Ensure that your service installation work is safe and sufficient by following the principles of the NEC-2023 explained in this four-credit Division of Building Safety-approved course.

The 2023 edition of the NEC contains new material and updates to existing codes. This course provides “cut-and-paste” coverage that highlights the changes from NEC-2020 to NEC-2023, making it easy to track updates. As you master the updated material, you will see how the codes within the NEC work together to set the standard for safe, effective electrical installation.

To conclude the course, you will tackle a series of practical problems that reinforce course content. These real-world examples demonstrate key principles — relating the text of the codes to the daily challenges you face as an electrician in the field.

After finishing this course, you will be able to:

  • Navigate the numerous codes that govern service installation.
  • Incorporate best practices for service overcurrent protection.
  • Utilize relevant codes on overhead service conductors.
  • Follow best practices regarding service equipment rating.
  • Apply best practices to service disconnecting means.
  • Select and install appropriate service-entrance conductors.
  • Apply the codes covered in this course to real-world problems in locating, rating, selection, disconnects, multiple services, panels, identification and GFPE.

Installation Checklists (2023 NEC)

This course explains updated installation methods that electricians in Colorado must use in order to pass rough and final electrical inspections.

This Division of Building Safety-approved course covers 2023 NEC requirements for installing wiring above the ceiling, underground, and on the rooftop.

Also included are code checklists for the following:

  • Installing and grounding panelboards, services, and transformers
  • Rough electrical inspections
  • Final electrical inspections

Learning Objectives:

Idaho electricians who complete this course will:

  • Know how to install electrical systems that will pass underground, rough, above ceiling, rooftop, service, panelboard, transformer, and final electrical inspections
  • Understand the updated installation codes electrical inspectors check for on jobsites
  • Be able to confidently respond to inspector requirements during all phases of a project

8-Hour Electrical Safety Course

In order to give students the clearest view possible on NFPA 70E-2021, the class presents the significant changes made during both the 2015-2018 and 2018-2021 review cycles. Along with changes made from 2012-2015, NFPA has been fundamentally transformed into a genuine companion for NFPA 70, the NEC. Among the major changes made to both the 2018 and 2021 editions are the introductions of human error as a safety factor in the new Informative Annex Q, a new Article 360 and Annex R on working safely with capacitors, expanded coverage of PPE, a new emphasis on the hierarchy of risk controls, and complete overhauls of both Article 110 (General Requirements) and Article 120 (Establishing an Electrically Safe Work Condition) so that Chapter 1 has essentially become a pull-out training manual for working safely around electricity.
