Many electricians are aware that code changes happen, but are they aware of how to navigate through the NEC to interpret and apply them? This workshop focuses on how electricians will incorporate the NEC and it’s code changes into their day-to-day work.
Participants must bring a code book (preferably the 2020 or 2023 edition). Workshop participants are provided with a Exploring the NEC and Upcoming Code Changes workbook.
