The 2017 NEC changes for Chapters 1, 2, 8, and 9 are what this 5 hour course goes over for Maryland electricians.
First in the course is an overview to the entire NEC and the new review process for the NEC during this review cycle. We will cover code-wide changes and the new articles for 2017, and end this section with how the NEC is organized.
Next we will cover changes to definitions in Article 100 and the requirements for electrical installations in Article 110.
In chapter 2 we will go over the major updates to wiring and protection, including the articles on branch circuits, feeders, and overcurrent protections, among others.
Finally are Chapters 8 & 9, where we will go over changes in the communications systems, as well as key changes in the tables and informative annexes which provide key information, like calculations for continuous loads, that electricians use regularly in their practice.
