EC&M Bonding and Grounding Conference LA

EC&M's 2018 Bonding & Grounding Training Event - Los Angeles

2-Day Training Event


One of the most confusing topics in electrical design and installation work is bonding and grounding — especially as it relates to National Electrical Code (NEC) requirements. Bad design decisions, misapplication of rules, and improper installation techniques lead to power quality problems and serious safety situations.

This dynamic training event promises to clear up many misconceptions about bonding and grounding, and break down NEC Article 250 (and all related Articles from 90 to 820) into everyday language that anyone can understand. It will clear up confusing or seemingly conflicting NEC rules and give tips on proper installations, cautions, and warnings of dangers related to improper installations.

Topics that will be covered include, but are not limited to:

  • Electrical fundamentals
  • Grounded versus ungrounded systems
  • System grounding versus equipment grounding
  • Grounding myths

There’s no better way to learn than in one of EC&M ’s training events, featuring Mike Holt. Mike's ability to explain these rules and their practical application in real world settings will help you properly apply bonding and grounding requirements on each and every one of your future projects; thus, minimizing the risk of electric shock and fire.

This training session is built around Mike Holt's Illustrated Guide to Understanding NEC Requirements for Bonding & Grounding. The Illustrated Guide features:

  • Hundreds of Full-Color Illustrations. Detailed instructional images display Code rules in an applied setting.
  • Color Icons. Explanatory icons that help you identify the specifics of each rule, along with easy-to-understand explanations.
  • In-depth Analysis. The rule is explained along with background information.
  • Insightful Author’s Comment. Special notes provide clarification of the rule and highlight its application in the real world.
  • Practical Examples. Reinforce your understanding of the change with a simulated real-life problems.
  • Practice Questions. Test your knowledge and understanding of each and every Article covered.

Attendees will receive their own personal copy of this book prior to the start of the session.
