2017 NEC® Updates & Practical Applications: Building & Facility Maintenance



3 Day

2.4 CEU

At the end of this seminar students will be able to:

  1. Understand the electrical power systems in your facility – from the incoming utility and service, through the distribution and feeders, down to the branch circuits and controls.
  2. Make changes to these systems safely, legally (code compliance) and cost effectively.
  3. Get through initial install inspection smoother, and pass general inspections later.
  4. Increase reliability \ decrease unplanned down-time.
  • Why You should take this seminar

    Over time the updating of equipment changes the route, load (power requirement), and access-point of electricity.  This class allows the employer’s employee team to make these changes safely, legally (code compliance) and cost effectively. This means more reliability with electrical systems working as expected and without unplanned down-time. You will also get through initial install inspection smoother, and pass general inspections later.
