In this 2017 NEC 16 hour Montana electrical continuing education course we will start with an introduction to the 2017 NEC, including explaining the new review process and identifying code-wide changes, as well as a primer on how the NEC is organized.

The next section covers updates to Chapter 1: Definitions and Chapter 11: Requirements for Electrical Installations.

Chapter 2: Wiring and Protection is next with updates to code sections such as certain exceptions under branch circuits, measurements for GFCI protection, branch circuits in electrical service areas, arc energy reduction (fuses) under overcurrent protection, and intersystem bonding terminations, among others.

Under Chapter 3: Wiring Methods and Materials we will look at conductors for general wiring updates, switch and overcurrent device enclosures, and changes to wiring types, for example.

In the chapter 4 we will take a look at key updates to equipment for general use, including electronic lighting control switches, extra-duty outlet box hoods, and generators and storage batteries.

Next up are special occupancies in chapter 5. We’ll cover updates to the sections on hazardous locations, and specifics such as wiring methods for Class I, Division 2, for example, and cable seals for Class I, Division 1. We’ll also look at updates for recreational vehicle parks, marinas and boatyards, and temporary installations.

Chapter 7: Special Conditions includes  updates for emergency systems, legally required standby systems,  and fire alarm systems.

The last section of the course covers communication systems from chapter 8, wherein we update electricians on communications circuits and premises-powered broadband communications systems. Next in this section are the updates to the tables in chapter 9, and the new information provided by the informative annexes.
