This four-credit course is approved by the Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing to teach aspects of electrical service installation. Utah electricians will gain a new appreciation of NEC-2023 as they learn proper installation techniques and safety measures.  

Few tasks are as important in the electrician’s trade as electrical service installation. This course helps students see how elements of the NEC work together to create a safe and effective standard for installation procedures. Since the code has been updated for 2023, this course includes a “cut-and-paste” comparison of all differences between NEC-2020 and NEC-2023. See what changed and what hasn’t with a glance as you familiarize yourself with new code updates. 

Conclude your learning with a set of practical examples. The course includes a series of real-world scenarios that will both help you to remember what you’ve learned and see how those principles can be applied to your work.
