We’ll begin this 15-hour NEC review with an introduction covering the newest NEC articles, changes affecting the entire code, and the changes to Article 90. Once we’ve got that down, we’ll move on to look at Chapters 1, 2, 3, 4, and 6 individually.
Chapter 1, which provides the foundational principles for the subsequent chapters. After that, we’ll jump into Chapter 2, and look at the changes to wiring and protection. Chapter 2 gives important insight into the principles electricians must keep in mind when designing a plan to build an electrical system. For Articles 240 and 250, we’ll review the importance of the terms and principles used in the NEC, before we look at the changes being implemented.
Chapter 3, “wiring methods and material”, covers the directions to build a safe and reliable electrical system that can accomplish its intended use. It begins with the most central provisions to accomplish this, and moves outward from there.
Next, we’ll look at Chapter 4, which contains directions for the appropriate use of electrical systems. This means how to safely connect and use electrical systems so that they are effective for their intended use.
In our Chapter 6 review, we’ll look at some atypical electrical work with special equipment, which will likely require a manufacturer’s instructions. Because of this specialized focus, Chapter 6 is shorter, but more frequently updates, and thus important to review.
This course will end with a final exam, as required by Vermont.
