2017 NEC Changes: Branch Circuit, Feeder and Services

Chapter 2 of the 2017 National Electrical Code (NEC) contains requirements for wiring of grounded conductors, branch, feeder and service conductors. Several changes were made for branch circuit conductors, feeder conductors and service conductors in Articles 210, 215, and 230, and, as always, they are some of the biggest in the entire Code. Changes include new and revised rules for GFCI and AFCI protection, dwelling unit circuiting and receptacles outlet revisions, fixing the electric service receptacle rule, adding required lighting, adding receptacles in commercial buildings(!), clarifying how to size feeders, and new listing rules for service equipment, and others as well.

2017 NEC Changes: Overcurrent Protection and Grounding & Bonding

Article 240 and 250 of the National Electrical Code (NEC) contain the requirements for overcurrent protection and for grounding and bonding. Several changes were made in Articles 240 and 250. In this interactive, online course, we will discuss notable changes to the 2017 NEC. Such changes include the addition of arc energy reduction requirements for fuses, additional options for the grounding of separately derived systems, changes to the allowed and prohibited types of grounding electrodes, recognizing new options for intersystem bonding, clarifying the rules for parallel conductors, and others.

2017 NEC Changes: Enclosures and Boxes

Chapter 3 of the 2017 National Electrical Code (NEC) contains requirements for wiring methods, enclosures, and boxes. Several changes were made in Articles 312 and 314. In this interactive online course, we discuss notable changes that include the addition of a new column in Table 312.6(A), new box fill requirements for barriers in boxes, clarifying the rules for cables entering enclosures, and new rules for separable attachment fittings.

2017 NEC Changes: Hazardous Locations

Chapter 5 of the 2017 National Electrical Code (NEC) contains requirements for special occupancies. In this interactive online course, we will review several changes that were made in Articles 500 through 516 for hazardous locations. Notable changes include the relocation of fourteen definitions to Article 100, a surprising new allowance for wiring methods in Class I locations, underground wiring changes for commercial garages and fuel dispensing locations, and new fuel storage classification requirements.

2017 NEC Changes: Special Occupancies

The National Electrical Code (NEC) standards govern the installation of electrical wiring and equipment. Incorrect wiring procedures could result in loss of life and property. Keeping up with the latest changes to the NEC is critical to ensuring safe electrical wiring practices. Chapter 5 of the 2017 National Electrical Code (NEC) contains the requirements for special occupancies. This interactive online course will teach you about several changes that were made in the articles for special occupancies, including health care facilities and RV parks as well as marinas and boatyards. Notable changes include new allowable wiring methods and equipment for health care facilities, revised receptacle requirements at RV parks, and more restrictive ground fault protection and signage requirements at marinas and boatyards.

2017 NEC Changes: Communication Systems

Proper wiring of electrical systems is essential to protecting life and property. Understanding the latest code requirements will ensure safe installation and operation of electrical systems for years to come. Articles 725 through Chapter 8 of the National Electrical Code (NEC) contain requirements for limited energy and communications systems. This interactive online course will teach you about changes made in the articles for remote-control, signaling, and power-limited circuits [725]; communications circuits [800]; and coaxial cables [820]. Notable changes include cable routing assemblies and communications raceways for control circuits, a major change to address fires from limited energy circuits, revisions to requirements for unlisted cables entering buildings, grounding of primary protectors, uses permitted for under-carpet communications wires and cables, and separation requirements for coaxial cables.
