Whether running power to a new piece of electrical equipment, setting the
overloads on a motor starter, installing a security camera, or replacing
fluorescent ballast; compliance with the NEC® is mandatory. The Code will be
officially rolling out later this year and many states will be adopting this as
law. NTT Training teaches the NEC® throughout the United States and to global
organizations in various international locations.
- Understand how NEC® safeguards people and property.
- Make your facility and operations NEC® compliant.
- Become current with the most recent NEC® updates.
The 2017 National Electrical Code® is being adopted by many states for
industry-wide electrical standards. Whether you are experienced with
electrical systems, or are simply looking for an introductory NEC® Seminar,
this training will significantly increase your knowledge and confidence.
The electric code regularly changes, so both experienced electricians as
well as people new to the NEC® will benefit from NTT Training’s practical
and in-depth National Electrical Code®.
Typical professions taking the seminar include:
- Electrical contractors
- Maintenance electricians
- HVAC maintenance and Repair Technicians
- Plant & facility maintenance technicians
- Building engineers
- Building managers & superintendents
- Plant & facility managers
- Stationary engineers
- Energy management personnel
- Safety directors
What You Will Learn
Understanding the 2017 National Electrical Code® and NEC® Applications.
This three-day course provides an excellent introduction to the NEC® along
with practical navigation exercises. The 2017 NEC® major changes are
addressed throughout the course for those seeking Code updates. Typical
field applications challenge both the novice and the experienced electrical
This training covers topics most needed by electrical workers including
the requirements for grounding and bonding, properly sizing conductors and
overcurrent protection for different applications, wiring methods, motor
installation and other general equipment specifics and, special topics as
requested by attendees. NTT Training also offers additional training on
specific industry applications of the NEC®.
Introduction & Overview
Successful Code navigation requires an overview of NEC purpose, content and
layout, and how to identify changes. Basic requirements of Articles 90 and 110.
Termination and torque requirements, working spaces and, arc flash hazard
Grounding & Bonding
Identified by the NFPA as the most misunderstood topic in the NEC, NTT
instructors remove the confusion as they explain the "why and how" of Article
250. Performance requirements of 250.4, sizing EGC’s, GEC’s and grounded
conductors, installation methods, system grounding, separately derived systems,
bonding requirements and, grounding of systems over 1000 volts.
Wiring & Protection
Branch circuits, feeders, fuses, circuit breakers are all parts of the
distribution system that run from the utility service to the individual loads
and all must be properly sized and installed. Chapter 2 in-depth information:
Sizing feeders and branch circuits in facilities, overcurrent selection and
sizing, surge arresters and protective devices.
Wiring Methods & Materials
Installing conductors, cables and conduits properly is necessary for an
electrically safe installation.
Chapter 3 in-depth topics: Ampacity calculations, box fill, pull-box sizing,
cover requirements, typically used cables and conduit installation requirements
and, cable tray.
Equipment For General Use
Everyday installation and maintenance electrical work is addressed on typical
equipment, such as; motors, plant lighting, HVAC equipment, panelboards to
switchgear and, industrial control panels. Selected articles from Chapter 4,
Equipment for General Use: Motors, HVAC type equipment, Industrial control panel
installation, typical commercial and industrial lighting applications, and
requirements for panelboards, switchboards and switchgear.
Special Occupancies, Equipment & Conditions, Communication Systems
Based on student needs, specific industry topics are reviewed. Overview of
typical articles include hazardous locations, temporary installations, emergency
systems, fire alarm systems and some communications circuits.
