This 24-hour course satisfies the continuing education requirements for Journeyman, Master, and Registered electricians in Wisconsin. The bulk of the course is about the 2017 updates to the NEC, but also includes the required topics of photovoltaic systems, OSHA safety standards, and the NFPA 70E. The course is broken up by topic, and each topic is completed by passing an exam.

Students will begin the course by reviewing OSHA Standard 1926, which provides a wide-ranging survey of safety considerations that affect electricians on job sites, including employer responsibilities, general rules for job safety in building trades, and the specific OSHA requirements that apply to electricians. The exam following this section consists of 10 questions.

Next, students will review the 2015 edition of the NFPA 70E, the industry standard for safer conditions when engaging in electrical work. This section also provides guidance on the most hazardous situations confronted in real-world situations. This section is followed by a 10-question exam, as well.

We will then move on to the topic of photovoltaic systems, and obtain a basic understanding of the technical necessities when installing and maintaining the electrical connections for a photovoltaic system. This section also includes an extensive review of the latest NEC sections governing these systems, and finishes with a brief review of recent developments and the future of PV Systems. This section is longer, and so is its exam, which consists of 30 questions.

Finally, the largest section of the course starts with a general overview of important changes to the NEC. These include code-wide changes, several new articles, and changes to Article 90 for clarity’s sake. Then, Chapters 1-9 are discussed individually.

Chapter 1 contains some of the fundamental definitions that electricians should master to be able to apply the rest of the code. Chapter 2 examines the best wiring and protection practices, which are essential for designing a safe and useful electrical system. Chapter 3 picks up from there, and discusses how to take that design and build the electrical system to be both safe and effective for its intended use. Chapter 4 addresses the correct way to connect and use these electrical systems when the design and build are applied.

With Chapter 5, we’ll get a bit more specialized. Chapter 5 is entitled “Special Occupations,” and will look at some less common systems you may encounter. It is widely considered the most complex chapter in the NEC, and is updated frequently.

Chapter 6 continues to look at specialized equipment, such as elevators. The equipment that falls under this category will usually require the manufacturer’s instructions to install properly. This chapter is short, but contains a large number of changes.

Next, Chapter 7 addresses “special” systems that must operate under duress or inhospitable conditions for regular systems. Fire alarm systems, direct-current microgrids, and more are covered here.

Last, we’ll cover Chapters 8 and 9, as well as the informative Annexes to the NEC. Chapter 8 focuses on communication systems, such as telephones and televisions. Chapter 8 is important to study specifically, because it is the only chapter in the NEC which does not necessarily conform to the fundamental rules. Chapter 9 contains tables providing guidance on various aspects of conduits and tubing, as well as how to apply them properly. The informative annexes we’ll look at contain important examples, which will help you apply the code to your work. The final exam follows, consisting of questions covering all 9 chapters of the NEC.

January 27th, 2019
I thought the course was great and very understandable and helpful.

January 17th, 2019
Very user friendly; I liked being able to stop in the middle of a lesson and come back to it. I recommend this course to everyone. Extremely reasonably priced too.

January 15th, 2019
Would like to thank Junior for all his help on the phone.

December 30th, 2018
Excellent content, that I was able to complete a my own pace. This CEU package is a great benefit to Electricians.

November 28th, 2018
like the at your own pace.

October 15th, 2018
Excellent course, very intensive

July 9th, 2018
It’s was all and all a good coarse but what made it stood out was the 180 question final exam, it forced me to get to know the code book better and I’m glad for that, and I believe that I learned a lot

June 18th, 2018
I highly recommend this course. It's a great monetary and time value.

June 10th, 2018
thank you

June 5th, 2018
Extremely long but nicely done.

June 4th, 2018
It was very good.

May 30th, 2018
Easy to follow, great content

May 16th, 2018
Good course. I spent more than 25 hours on this and am well satisfied.

May 15th, 2018
The ease of the course made it really comfortable for me to do.

May 11th, 2018
Very thorough. Presented in logical order

May 1st, 2018
nice for at home

April 30th, 2018
The final exam was too long. Should be either 50 or 100 questions, not 180!!

April 7th, 2018
great course...learned a lot...thanks

March 21st, 2018
Was told I didn't need 2014 or 2017 nec...that turned out to be wrong. Nec necessary to take final test. The problem was that Wisconsin most likely not adopt 2014, yet classes refer between 2014 and 2017. It's an added expense not foreseen necessary to pass your course.

March 3rd, 2018
Nice format, I had way more than 24 hours invested in this renewal.

March 16th, 2019
definitely need a code book for the final exam!

February 6th, 2019
The final exam should be reviewed. Too many repeat questions.

February 2nd, 2019
Would like the course better if the questions were after each chapter rather than all of them after reading through all the chapters

November 1st, 2018
Good class. Could use some small improvements

October 27th, 2018
It was very indepth

August 13th, 2018
It was a very informative course overall, but a lot of questions on the exam were not easily located but some answers could be found through a Google search instead. Good course though overall.

July 2nd, 2018
some of questions seemed completely irrelevant to electrical work

June 18th, 2018
It's a good course and I would recommend it. The only minor gripe I have is the test questions seemed a little off. But in the end it all worked out well.

June 13th, 2018
final test was very long and difficult

June 7th, 2018
Some questions not related to code book to help in field should not be asked.

May 26th, 2018
The course material was very thorough. Experienced technical difficulties allow yourself time to clear them up. The tech. team was almost immediate with every response and courteous and was aware of the issue.

April 2nd, 2018

February 16th, 2018
It was tough to go through and answer questions on the NEC after watched video. Some time elapsed and some of the questions were based on video not code

February 8th, 2018
to many questions left to speculation

January 31st, 2018
+this renual course also needs to be sent into the state of Minnesota. Journeyman lic aj677240 Thank you

February 19th, 2019
I would of preferred the test after each chapter.

September 27th, 2018

September 22nd, 2018
I am registered in both Wisconsin and Minnesota. Above is my Wisconsin info. Here is my Minnesota info. RE709389/Registered Unlicensed Electrician.

June 25th, 2018
was just caught off guard about the nec exam.. I thought it was going to be on all the code changes to 2017 code, not a regular code test.

April 30th, 2018
Seemed like a lot of code questions. Not real easy to go back to the slides to check on an answer to a question. Maybe you don't want that.

January 25th, 2018
Many questions were in my opinion not written in the format exam questions use. Some questions were even questions of opinion which coupled with my latter criticism made me furious. I need a ce course that also trains me in reading code which is half of my job and a required skill for passing exams. The test also failed to save my progress at multiple points which meant I had to research answers again. Over all there were many things which made me feel like much of my time was wasted.

March 11th, 2019
Very poorly made. Instructor, content, etc.

February 20th, 2019

June 29th, 2018
24 hour course that took more like 50+ hours to complete. 180 NEC question test at end when the JW test in Wisconsin is only 100 questions. Test doesn't count towards JW cert.

June 27th, 2018
Worst course I have ever taken. Horrible final exam.

April 27th, 2018
Way more than 24 hours into this course to complete.

March 21st, 2018
This course was very useful the first year I took it because it is very informative and helped me learn a great deal as a new electrician even though it took many times the "24 hours" it should take. This year with the addition of the test at the end forced my electrician's license to expire, as it more than doubled the amount of time required to complete the original educational requirement. The test at the end was filled with incorrect wording and incorrect article numbers. I was recommending this course to anybody who asked how I was completing my CE, but after this year I plan on finding another educational source despite a cost increase, because it's not worth the time I've dedicated to it and it's not worth losing my license.
