This continuing education (CE) course provides 8 hours on the 2021 edition of NFPA 70E, the pre-eminent industry Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace. It provides eight hours of approved CE for all license types and fulfills the 8 hours of CE on NFPA 70E required to renew an Electrical Apprentice registration beginning July 31, 2021.
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.
