EC&M's 2017 Code Change Conferences - Cleveland, Ohio

The 2017 NEC is Here!

This conference will provide you with in-depth coverage of the most important changes in the 2017 National Electrical Code (NEC). This is a ‘must attend’ training event if you are an electrician, contractor, engineer, designer, or plant/facility maintenance person.

When thinking about whether or not you want to attend, keep in mind some of the topics that Brian House of Mike Holt Enterprises will cover at the two-day training event: 

  • Addition of working space requirements for 600V to 1,000V systems
  • Revision to the condition under which structural steel qualifies as a grounding electrode
  • Added EMT to the list of approved options for protecting conductors from physical damage as they emerge from below grade
  • New requirement that allows power monitoring equipment to be installed in the cabinet gutter space 
  • Expanded and clarified AFCI requirements
  • A revision now allows Type SE cable to be used as a temporary wiring method for branch circuits and feeders in exposed locations above ground and in underground raceways
  • Revision of PV rapid shutdown requirement to introduce the concept of an array boundary 

Course content is based on Mike Holt’s 2017 NEC Changes Textbook. The Illustrated Guide features:

  • Hundreds of Illustrations. Detailed instructional images display the Code change in an applied setting.
  • Color Icons. Explanatory icons that help you identify the specifics of each change, along with easy-to-understand explanations.
  • In-depth Analysis. The rule is explained along with background information on the purpose of the change.
  • Insightful Author’s Comment. Special notes provide clarification of the rule and highlight its application in the real world.
