This continuing education course provides 8 hours of National Electrical Code related content for handling and installing electrical components around or in water. Electricians licensed in the state of Idaho must complete 24 hours of training for license renewal. Information from Articles 680 and 682 deals with pools, spas, fountains, ponds, and grounding terminals. This lengthy section will ensure electricians know what to watch out for, how to protect electrical systems from shortage and water damage, and protect the users of such containers.

Next is a short section on electrical protection devices in wet or damp locations that are intended to prevent electrocution or shock, such as Ground-Fault Circuit Interrupters and Immersion Detection Circuit Interrupters. Various machines and pumps for water distribution are discussed in the third segment of the course. In the last section, electrical work on structures placed on or beside bodies of water will be detailed.

Videos, images, and a comprehensive exam accompany thorough slides. After the 165 question final, students will be asked to complete a questionnaire before receiving their Certificate of Completion.

Really thorough course

August 12th, 2018
Took way more hours to complete. Otherwise was a good course.

May 30th, 2019
I think the 165 question quiz is a little overboard.

April 25th, 2018
Have never taken a CE course that had over 100 questions on final exam.

February 2nd, 2019
162 question seemed a little long and redundant. The main study was informative.

June 24th, 2018
I thought having the final exam was quite a bit extra and not expecting it. Little dissapointed

October 27th, 2018
very poorly written with grammatical errors and dread end code related questions. i feel like it was someone who came up with the final test expecting me to read his mind on some of the questions
