National Electrical Code NFPA 70 Intro, Review and Update

This course will cover key articles of the NFPA 70, aka the National Electrical Code (NEC), and will provide an update of changes. The content is designed so that non-electrical engineers and non-electricians can learn the basic tenets of the NEC. Upon attending this course, you will be able to identify codes pertaining to various electrical equipment installations. You will learn the methodology associated with analyzing and interpreting key articles in the National Electrical Code. Some key calculations related to the application of the code will be illustrated, followed by class exercises for knowledge reinforcement purposes.

The main focus of this course is low voltage (0 to 1000V). The major updates in the revision of the code will be covered. In order to enhance your understanding of the line current differences between three-phase AC, “Y” and “∆ - Delta” configurations--in the selection and application of protective devices--methods for calculating three-phase AC currents in “Y” and “∆ - Delta” loads will be covered. This one-day review of the NEC is an abridged version of the typical one-week comprehensive course.
