Included as a part of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), the National Electrical Code ® ( NEC ®) is more widely used than any other installation or construction code in the world. Its purpose is to provide anyone working with electricity the most up-to-date, best practices for safe installation and maintenance of electrical systems and equipment. The purpose of this training is to help electricians understand the new 2011 Code ® changes, while at the same time providing all non-electrical personnel with a practical introduction to the NEC ®.
