NEC 2008 Update

Course Description

The Changes to the National Electrical Code (NEC) 2008 course is designed for persons performing electrical work. While there were over 3,688 proposed changes to the 2008 Code, this course will examine some of the most significant changes that affect the people throughout the electrical industry including residential, commercial, and industrial electricians.

Even though the 145 articles contained in the Code can be confusing and may contain what appears to be contradictory requirements, the authority having jurisdiction (AHJ) will be the fundamental decision maker. You will need to understand and follow their interpretation as to the significance of information contained in a particular article, section, or subsection.

During this course, particular emphasis will be provided when this situation is known to have occurred and some of the different perspectives will be presented to permit you to see several sides of a particular topic.
