An in-depth look at the 2017 code changes most relevant to fire alarm electricians and technicians, this state-approved course provides the full 15 hours of continuing education required for license renewal.

Every amendment made by Michigan when adopting the 2017 NEC as the basis for the 2017 Michigan Electrical Code is looked at for its relevance and impact. That’s followed by a brisk review of changes to the 2016 Fire Alarm and Signaling Code. Every significant change made to the three most widely applied codes in Chapters 1, 2, and 3 in the 2017 NEC are covered in class #3. The course finishes with a selection of significant changes made during the 2014-2017 NEC code review cycle to Chapters 5, 7, 8 & 9, focusing on those most likely to impact fire alarm electricians and technicians.

The course provides a thumbnail of the changes, a cut-and-paste review of the changes themselves, and a discussion of the reasons for the changes as well as what it means for working electricians. The discussions are based on the deliberations of the Technical Committees and other authoritative sources as well as on industry publications and best practices.

The goal is not only to look at each change but to see how the codes fit together and the directions the codes are heading. By the end of the class, the student will have a solid foundation in the latest codes and standards and an enhanced ability to navigate and use the Michigan Electrical Code.
