This 15 hour 2017 NEC course starts with an overview to the updates and changes to the code. We will go over code-wide changes, as well as the new articles for 2017, and give a quick primer on how the code is organized so electricians can easily use it.

Next up we will explain Articles 100 and 110, which explain definitions used in the code and the different requirements for electrical installations, such as how to list (Product Certification) of Equipment, and arc-flash hazard warnings.

In Chapter 2: Wiring and Protection we will go over new code sections including updates to overcurrent protection, and dwelling unit receptacle outlets for basements, garages, and accessory buildings, and feeders with certain exceptions.

The next section is Chapter 3: Wiring Methods and Materials where we’ll cover the updates including various minimum requirements for wiring, cabinets, cutout boxes, and meter socket enclosures, and a discussion to the changes regarding cable types.

In Chapter 4: Equipment for General Use we will explain changes to switch codes, appliances, such as vending machines, and important info for fixed outdoor electric deicing and snow-melting equipment.

Under Chapter 6: Special Equipment, we will address code changes for electric signs and outline lighting, Information Technology (IT) equipment, and Solar Photovoltaic (PV) systems.

The final section of the course covers Chapter 8: Communication Systems, and Chapter 9: Tables and Informative Annexes. In this section we’ll look at the updates for the grounding of radio and tv equipment, and then tackle the practical aspect of the updates to the tables and annexes, tools that an electrician uses regularly, such as updates to continuous load calculations.

As with all of our courses, this one may be completed at your own pace!

July 28th, 2018
Enjoyed taking your course.

February 9th, 2018
I think there was a little too much explanation on the code changes. I think a more practical approach that shows direct field application would be better. Maybe more vidoes?

January 30th, 2018
Thank You

January 12th, 2018
Not today

December 18th, 2017
This is supposed to be a 15hr. course. It took me 26 hrs. It could be arranged better, made easier to go back and fourth from page to page without having to start over .

June 25th, 2018
It would be more beneficial for the questions to be in the code book since that is what would be used in the field instead of the explanation of the change
