This package is comprised of a 4 hour NFPA 70E Safety course and a 12 hour 2020 NEC Code course, and will fulfill all 16 hours of your CE requirement.

Our Safety Course is designed for all licensed electricians in Utah and fulfills 4 of the 16 hours of continuing education required for this license renewal cycle. It is comprised of two lessons that complement each other:

Lesson #1 NFPA 70E-2015 (Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace): This class presents a review of the industry standard for safer conditions when working with electricity, the 2015 edition of the NFPA 70E, including helpful guides on the most hazardous situations confronted in the field. By the end of this class, students will be able to more effectively navigate and utilize, NFPA 70E, the definitive guide to electrical safety in the workplace, employ clear and effective practices for Energized Electrical Work and Electrically Safe Work Conditions, and better assess and prevent arc-flash risks.

Lesson #2 NFPA 72-2016 (Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace): This class provides a comprehensive review of the 2016 edition of the NFPA 72, the preeminent standard for all signaling systems designed to alert both occupants and authorities of emergency situations, adopted as enforceable code by states throughout the U.S. By the end of this class, students will be familiar with how this vital code has developed over the years and how it's enforced and applied today, introduced to key changes to a wide range codes as the latest technology continues to transform these systems, and provided an in-depth survey of codes on grounding, survivability, and monitoring of system performance.

The 2020 NEC class begins with a broad introduction to the changes made to the 2020 National Electrical Code® (NEC-2020). It includes a brisk discussion of the code review process, a detailed explanation of how the NEC is organized, and coverage of code-wide changes, new Articles for 2020, and the changes to Article 100 (Definitions) and Article 110 (Requirements for Electrical Installations). It then presents every significant change made to Chapters 2, 3 & 4 of NEC-2020.

These are the three “core” Chapters in the NEC, addressing the provisions that govern almost every electrical installation, barring any specialized circumstances. The class finishes up by presenting every significant change made to Chapter 5, an extremely complex Chapter, generally considered the most difficult to master. It governs situations requiring special electrical precautions due to hazardous substances, critical services being provided, or higher risks to the public and other users.

Each change in Chapters 1-5 is presented first with a “thumbnail” to help orient the student and provide a ready means for reviewing the material. The 2020 NEC language for the affected code is then provided, with any deletions and revisions from the 2017 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.
