- 8 Hour Course
- 4.6 27 Reviews
We'll begin this 8-hour NEC review course by covering the changes that affect the entire code, as well as the newest articles to be added to the NEC. We'll also discuss Article 90, which explains when general provisions apply, and which situations qualify as an exception.
The course will cover the articles of Chapter 1, containing definitions and general requirements for electrical installation, before we tackle Chapter 2. Chapter 2 is a valuable resource for planning the design of an electrical system according to code and safety provisions. It addresses feeders, calculations, services, overcurrent and surge protection, and more.
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.
Last, we'll jump forward to Chapter 7, which addresses systems that must operate under special conditions, such as duress or inhospitable conditions for regular systems. Fire alarm systems, direct-current microgrids, and more will be covered here.
