30 Hour Course
This 30 hour package is for Electrical Engineers fulfilling their Professional Development Requirements. In this course we will cover electrical industry subjects and important updates to the 2017 NEC. Topics in this package include wiring methods, grounding & bonding, code changes, and other appropriate industry & code related material.
This course begins with an overview to the 2017 NEC, touching on the larger changes to the code.
Then we will cover the individual chapters and highlight the important changes. We start with Chapter 2 and an examination of wiring and protection, including branch circuits and overcurrent protection. Chapter 3 continues that concept with examining the different wiring methods and materials, such as how to protect wiring from physical damage and cable types.
The next section is on Chapters 8 and 9 which cover different communications systems, with a section on the grounding of radio and tv equipment, and lists important tables and annexes, like the sizing of service conductors for dwellings, that electricians will reference while on the job.
Chapter 1 is up next with the definitions that will be used throughout the code and covering the basic requirements for electrical installations.
The next section covers what is considered the most complex and frequently updated section of code, Chapter 5: Special Occupancies. This section covers areas in which electricians will work where there are additional hazards.
Next up is chapter 6 covering different types of special equipment, such as electric signs and swimming pools. After that is chapter 4 following going over equipment for general use, such as receptacles, cord connectors, and plugs.
The last section of this course will cover the NFPA 70E, OSHA 1926: Safety and Health Regulations for the Tradesman, and Photovoltaic Systems.
