Stay Sane and Profitable: 2014 NEC Code Change Class

Thursday, August 23, 2018
Radisson Valley Forge – 1160 1st Ave, King of Prussia

CEUs: Philadelphia and PA  - 8 hours

Pennsylvania is finally advancing from the 2008 NEC. As of October 1, 2018, Pennsylvania will be using the 2014 NEC as the enforcement document for electrical projects in the public domain.

About the class: This one-day class will educate contractors on what NEC changes are about to be enforced for work being conducted in Pennsylvania.  With a focus on the 2014 NEC, our instructors will also cover several of the 2011 NEC changes since Pennsylvania is jumping two codes ahead.

Why you should attend: Attendees will learn what electrical equipment must be installed and what is the correct way to do it. Receive answers to your questions and walk away with ways to save time, money and your sanity!

 

*Bonus* Industry suppliers and partners will be hosting table tops throughout the day! Get key questions answered and make valuable connections with organizations such as Philadelphia L&I, PECO and PA One Call!

  • If an extreme circumstance arises for the student, such as a death in the immediate family, severe illness, etc., a refund will be processed.  A decision will be made on a case-by-case basis by the executive director.
