  • Why You should take this training program

    This update course is for people already familiar with the code and simply need to know the updates. Innovations like Solar, Data Communication, Electric Vehicle Charging are driving the electrical industry and the NEC is updated every 3 years to reflect this. This course covers the major changes and instructors will answer your questions about specific work scenarios and applications.

    While the new 2020 version of the code will be updated and officially rolling out later this year, not every state adopts the code at the same time so call us to determine which cycle version you need to comply with in your state.
