This is the first day of our comprehensive Exam Preparation Workshop. This workshop covers multiple important concepts that are essential to electrical professionals wanting to become more familiar with the NEC and how to navigate it efficiently and thoroughly. Focusing on navigation, organization, and electrical calculations our instructor, Victor Ring, combines his professional experience and real world examples while bringing a renewed enthusiasm for the electrical code.

While this workshop provides licensed electricians the opportunity to earn *CEUs, keep in mind that this course has been structured as a two-day workshop for those preparing to test for the Electrical Exam. (North Carolina will begin testing on the 2020 NEC effective January 1st, 2022 and therefore this class will begin to focus on the 2020 NEC.)

*Earn 10 CEUs in North Carolina; Additional States CEU Reporting Options available (ex: adding Ohio State Reporting will provide 10 CEUs to the state of Ohio, adding Virginia State Reporting will provide 3 CEUs to the state of Virginia, etc).
