“Keep it practical.” That is the key to understanding the grounding and bonding requirements of the National Electrical Code (NEC). Yes, the NEC states the performance requirements for grounding and bonding. However, if the prescriptive requirements of the remainder of Art. 250 Grounding and Bonding are not followed, what happens? In this webinar, practical case study examples are used to introduce attendees to the importance of NEC compliance for proper grounding and bonding.
Randy Barnett, Electrical Codes Program Manager for NTT Training, puts the grounding and bonding rules of the NEC into perspective, giving attendees an overview of the content of each of the 10 parts of Article 250 along with techniques of how to locate specific information needed for proper installation. Finally, once the compliance requirements are located, electrical workers must make the physical connections to join grounding and bonding components and systems together. The eight methods found in the Code are explained.
Overall, attendees will take away a wealth of information from this webinar, including:
- An understanding of the importance of compliance with NEC requirements for grounding and bonding.
- An overview of Art. 250 contents and how to apply them.
- Practical methods to locate specific information on grounding and bonding in the NEC.
- A review of the eight acceptable methods to make grounding and bonding connections.
