This 4-hour course is specifically designed for Texas Sign electricians, and contains important topics for safety practices, as well as the relevant updates to the 2017 NEC.
We'll begin with the Texas Administrative Rules in Title 16, which addresses topics such as insurance requirements, appliance installation responsibilities, and more. Then, we'll look at the statutes in Texas' Occupations Code which address the different specialties of electricians, as well as licensure and disciplinary actions.
After that, we'll take a look at the NFPA 70E, and how it complements the NEC by addressing the standards for safety that are necessary when working with electricity, including Arc-Flash Hazards.
Last, we'll cover the 2017 changes to the NEC in Articles 600 and 690, two of the most important articles for sign electricians to be up to date on.
