The 2017 National Electrical Safety Code will be released August 1, 2016. With thousands of proposed changes or additions to the NESC, most directly affecting distribution systems, learning these changes is imperative for personnel responsible for the safe design, construction and operations of an electric utility system. This seminar focuses on the application of the 2017 National Electrical Safety Code, with particular emphasis on the changes to the existing rules and new rules. Attendees will learn the meaning of the safety code rules as well as how to apply the rules in everyday design. Engineers, staking technicians, foremen, and construction contractors will benefit from this two-day course.
