  • Why You should take this seminar

    This update course is for people already familiar with the code and simply need to know the updates. The National Electrical Code® is used by all states for industry-wide electrical standards. Updated every 3-years, the new 2017 NEC® will be officially released later this year.

    Ask about our practical NEC Application Workshop – Whether you’re new to the NEC or a seasoned electrician or engineer, this class is all about learning “how to use the Code.” NTT Training’s new format bridges the gap – applying the theory to the practical reality of what to do in the field.

    This is a practical applications class – not just the typical Code lecture class you may be used to attending. You’ll work hard, applying the code to a retro-fit or new installation involving changing work-flows, live parts, commissioning equipment, and documenting the Arc Flash Hazard and one-line drawings.
