This 2 day NESC review course that provides a general overview of the National Electrical Safety Code (NESC) was developed primarily for electric utility personnel and contractors responsible for the design, construction, and maintenance of distribution power lines and systems. The course provides attendees with a brief history of the NESC, its purpose, as well as the structure of the organization, roles of committees and the process for determining rules. The course focuses on rules associated with installation and maintenance of overhead and underground electric supply and communication lines, work rules associated with the same, and with particular attention given to changes introduced in the latest 2017 edition of the NESC. Worksheet exercises allow participants to apply NESC rules as they calculate load, clearance and sag for sample designs. A course guide is provided.

Students should bring a copy of the 2017 NESC (not provided). The 2017 NESC will be available August 1, 2016 and may be purchased from IEEE (http://www.ieee.com).
