This course covers key articles of the NFPA 70, aka, The National Electrical Code, and an update of 2020 changes. This course is designed so that even non-electrical engineers and non-electricians can learn the basic tenets of the NEC. Upon attending this course, participants will be able to identify codes pertaining to various electrical equipment installations. Participants will learn the methodology associated with analyzing and interpreting key articles in the National Electrical Code. Some key calculations related to the application of the code will be illustrated, followed by class exercises for knowledge reinforcement purposes.
The main focus of this course is low voltage
(0 to 1000V). The major updates in the 2020 revision of the code will be
covered. In order to enhance the participants’ understanding of the line
current differences between three-phase AC, “Y” and “∆ - Delta” configurations
- in the selection and application of protective devices - methods for
calculating three-phase AC currents in “Y” and “∆ - Delta” loads will be
covered. This course is designed for electrical engineers, non-electrical
engineers with some electrical background, licensed electrical professional
engineers, maintenance engineers, engineering managers, facilities managers and
other professionals who are not familiar or current on National Electrical Code.
This one-day review of the NEC is an abridged version of the typical one-week comprehensive
Learning Objectives & Take-Aways
