- NEC & National Electric Safety Code 2 hours
National Electrical Safety Code (NESC) is published by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). The latest edition is designated as ANSI C2 2017. This article examines the basics of the NESC relative to its scope and purpose, provides essential information about correlation with the National Electrical Code (NEC) and addresses the importance of the term “service point.” Latest code changes will be discussed.
- Transformers (Article 450) 2 hours
This course is designed to establish the basic requirements for safe and reliable transformer installations. It will discuss KVA ratings, overcurrent protection and proper transformer grounding. A power point presentation and worksheet calculations will be used. The operation of any facility depends on power distribution, which, in turn, depends on transformers. Safe and reliable operation of transformers is crucial — that’s where Art. 450 comes in. Part I of Art. 450 contains general requirements such as guarding, marking, accessibility, and ventilation. Part II contains the requirements for different types of transformers, and Part III provides the requirements for transformer vaults. Article 450 opens by telling you that it applies to the installation of all transformers, but then it immediately lists eight exceptions. The three most common areas of application: power transformers, most kinds of lighting transformers, and transformer vaults. It also covers transformers that are dedicated to supplying fire pumps, except as modified by Art. 695.
- Overcurrent Protective Devices & Uses 2 hours
The course covers the types of overcurrents and how specific devices protect the electrical system. The course begins with the three basic types of overcurrents and device ratings. The discussion continues with the selection overcurrent protective devices for services, feeders and branch circuits. Available short circuit calculations, selective coordination and series rated systems will be covered in detail. Latest code changes will be discussed.
- Common Reasons for Failing Inspections & Plan Review 2 hours
Covers the most common reasons electrical contractors fail to receive approvals for their permit applications and inspections. The topics were gathered from electricians, inspectors, architects and engineers. The sources they reference are from the NEC, Uniform Construction Code, Barrier Free Code, International Energy Conservation Code, International Residential Code, International Building Code and the NFPA 72, The National Fire Alarm Code. This course will aid the electrical contractor in successfully completing the permit application and inspection processes.
