The course will present you with a 4-hour review of the most recent changes to the NEC, as well as important regulations for an electrician's practice. We'll begin by reviewing code-wide changes to be aware of, as well as new articles added to the code in 2017.
Then, we'll jump into our Chapter 3 review, which addresses wiring methods and materials, and look at all the 17 changes it incorporates. Chapter 3 is an important chapter to be well-versed in because it informs electricians in some of the most important concepts to use when building an electrical system.
We'll cover Articles 300 through 366, which contain the building blocks to be used in your practice and apply to items such as cable wiring methods, working with cabinets, cutout boxes, and socket enclosures, as well as minimum cover requirements.
After that, we'll review the Administrative Code found in Title 16, Part 4, Chapter 73, which addresses important topics such as standards of conduct, administrative penalties, and enforcement. Then we'll move on to the statutes of Occupations Code: Title 8, Chapter 1305. These statutes address licensing law, as well as regulation of electricians, and disciplinary actions.
