Why is Article 250 of the National Electrical Code (NEC), which covers the grounding and bonding of electrical systems, so often misunderstood? What exactly is the difference between grounding and bonding anyway? Although seemingly straightforward, the answers aren’t always so simple – demonstrating why EC&M readers have continued to pose these same questions over the years. That’s one reason why we presented a 12-part series in the pages of the magazine and online on “The Differences Between Bonding & Grounding” in 2021.

We’re now proud to present this topic in webinar form to supplement that coverage. Based upon one of the most engaging episodes of our highly popular Tech Talk video series, “Grounding & Bonding in a Nutshell,” Electrical Safety Expert and Trainer Randy Barnett will lead attendees of the webinar through the basics of this subject, including explanations of the correct terminology and applying the underlying principles. Working his way through all 10 Parts of Art. 250, Randy will cover installation requirements, common misconceptions, related codes and standards, application of these concepts in the field, and safety procedures. He will conclude with a discussion of recommendations on how to measure the resistance of the ground connections and grounding electrode system the correct way.
