This class presents every significant change made to these are two critical Chapters of the 2017 NEC, addressing the most central provisions of the NEC for safe and reliable wiring materials and protective devices that affects almost every kind of electrical installation.
Each change in this class is presented first with a “thumbnail” to help orient the student and provide a ready means for reviewing the material. The 2017 NEC language for the affected code is then provided, with any deletions and revisions from the 2014 NEC clearly shown. Most importantly, each change is accompanied by a thorough-going discussion of what the change means and the reason it was installed in the Code. The discussion includes, where possible, the reasons provided by the relevant code-making panel that oversaw the change and any vital contributions to the discussion from working electricians, manufacturers, and industry analysts. The goal is to express every change in clear language, to focus on how the changes should be applied by a working electrician, and to provide the resources to explore the change more fully for those who wish to do so.
