NFPA 70 : National Electrical Code

NFPA 70 : National Electrical Code

  • course description:

    Fully updated for consistency with the 2017 edition of NFPA 70®: National Electrical Code®, the dynamic NEC Essentials Classroom Training features high-impact instruction that helps participants ensure safe and compliant electrical installation and design in their work setting. Advance their ability to locate, interpret, and apply requirements in the ever-evolving NEC.
    Interact with NFPA's renowned electrical instructors in a collaborative learning environment, with topic-driven lessons tailored to real-world situations. Then, solidify Code knowledge through engaging discussion, revised activities, and practical exercises based on key concepts in the 2017 edition of the NEC. Participants will leave with vital takeaways that will help them comply, increase confidence in their ability to recognize potential problems, and avoid costly rework or safety violations.

  • course learning outcomes:

    - Determine if an electrical installation complies with all access and space requirements.
    - Implement general requirements for service, feeder, and branch circuit conductors and overcurrent devices for a premises wiring system.
    - Recognize all critical component sizes and locations in an effective grounding scheme.
    - Clarify correct usage of metal piping and framing as grounding electrode conductors.
    - Apply the rules for raceway and conduit fill to groups of conductors.
    - Discuss the primary considerations in determining the ampacity of a conductor.
    - List the standard ratings of overcurrent devices for use in applying code requirements.
