Texas Electrician 4 Hour CE Program #8
Item #: RV-PGM229
This is a four-part interactive course. Part 1 of this course provides an overview of many of the changes in the 2021 edition of NFPA 70E. Some of the notable changes include a reorganization of Article 110, new allowance for training, clarifications on who can use test equipment, lockout and tagout revisions, new tasks in the arc flash risk assessment, clarifications to the PPE requirements, new provisions for capacitors, and a lot of updated material in the annexes -- new calculations in IEEE-1584, and even a new annex for working with capacitors.
For each renewal, an electrical apprentice, electrical sign apprentice, journeyman electrician, master electrician, journeyman sign electrician, master sign electrician, residential wireman, journeyman lineman or maintenance electrician must complete four hours of continuing education. One of those hours must contain training on state law and rules that regulate the conduct of licensees. Part two of this course will fulfill that requirement.
Part three of this course will briefly discuss the 2020 implementation of the National Fire Protection Association’s (NFPA)® new revision process for considering changes to the National Electrical Code (NEC)®. You will be introduced to the 2020 NEC® new articles covering Overvoltage Protection, Medium Voltage (MV) Cable, and Type P Cable. We’ll show you how and where the NFPA® has reorganized and relocated articles to expand on Manufactured Buildings and Relocatable Structures. Additionally, we’ll review the two articles that were merged into one to cover Marinas, Boatyards, Floating Buildings and Commercial and Noncommercial Docking Facilities. And finally, we’ll summarize the changes made to Article 800 General Requirements for Communications Systems.
Part four covers the changes in Articles 600 through 695 of the National Electrical Code®, other than Articles 690 and 691 (PV systems). Notable changes include increasing the requirement for selective coordination for elevators; multiple changes addressing electric vehicles used as a power source; further restrictions on underfloor wiring in ITE rooms; listing, inspection, and GFCI protection requirements for pools and bodies of water, and reduced protection requirements for fire pump wiring.
