With thousands of proposed changes, the 2017 NESC includes new clearance and loading requirements, new grounding rules, and new requirements for underground facilities. The 2017 NESC will also have updates to the work rules to harmonize with the OSHA Rules issued in 2014. This course will focus only on the changes to the NESC and will assume that participants have a working knowledge of the NESC. The changes will be addressed in terms of possible required changes to design standards and work rules for electric utilities. The class focuses on the major changes to the NESC for distribution applications. Engineers, staking technicians, foremen, and construction contractors will benefit from this one-day course.
