Workshop Agenda

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 labeling.

 

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.
