From the beginning, the use of electricity has presented many challenges ranging from how to install a safe electrical system to how to develop minimum code requirements for safe electrical installations. These installations depend on several minimum requirements, many of which are covered in NFPA 70.
In this grounding and bonding seminar, workers learn protection fundamentals and performance requirements that are essential for electrical installation, design and inspection. They will also learn how to do this while maintaining the highest level of electrical safety for persons and property.
If you work with electrical systems and equipment, you need to understand the intricacies of grounding & bonding to make a safer work environment and help preserve the lifespan of your equipment. Both experienced electricians as well as people new to the National Electrical Code® (NEC) will benefit from this practical and in-depth seminar.
Typical professions include:
HVAC maintenance and Repair Technicians
Plant & facility maintenance technicians
Building managers & superintendents
Plant & facility managers
Energy management personnel
What You'll Learn
Participants learn about grounding requirements as they relate to Article 250 and other articles of the National Electrical Code® (NEC). Installation, testing, and inspection procedures for industrial, commercial, institutional and residential power systems are covered. Learn the rules to minimize the risk of electricity as a source of electric shock, and as an ignition source of fires and explosions.
