We offer NEC 2017 Update training in all 50 states!

The purpose of the NEC is the practical safeguarding of persons and property from hazards arising from the use of electricity. The NEC is written for qualified persons only. If electrical equipment is installed according to the code requirements and all the components for installation are listed and labeled for the application, and has been inspected by the local authority having jurisdiction (AHJ), it is considered safe to operate. I think everyone would agree the code book can be difficult to grasp. However, the problem at most industrial facilities is that most electrical workers are seldom updated with code requirements and no AHJ is inspecting the installation.The result is: damage to equipment (downtime) and elevated risk to personnel. EDS can help keep your employees up-to-date, minimizing downtime and increase personal safety.


Our NEC 2017 Code Update Class covers topics from Chapter 1: General, Chapter 2: Wiring and Protection, Chapter 3: Wiring Methods and Materials, Chapter 4: Equipment for General Use and several important Annexes. We do not select every topic in the first 4 chapters, but choose to address those topics that would be identified relevant to safety and would most affect the cost of doing business. However we can customize certain areas of interest if notified in advance. Any combination of the following topics can be included to meet your requirements.
