COURSE OVERVIEW

This course is developed to provide a comprehensive study of Chapters 1 through 4, including a brief overview of Chapter 5, of the 2020 National Electrical Code®. Major updates and revisions from previous editions are addressed throughout this course. The class participant learns how to apply the Code to properly install electrical circuits and equipment. This course provides a study of the definitions of electrical terms; requirements for electrical installations, such as branch circuits and grounding systems; wiring methods and materials; overcurrent protection, voltage drop, neutral load and other calculations through practical exercises; the method for determining conductor ampacity through practical exercises; sizing circuits and devices for motors and motor circuits through practical exercises; and more. The content of the NEC®–2020 course also addresses the OSHA 29 CFR 1910.302-.308 mandated requirements for electrical installations.
