2014 NFPA 70®: National Electrical Code® (NEC®) System Grounding and Bonding Self-Guided Online Course
|Item # OL027|
NFPA®'s NEC® System Grounding and Bonding Self-Guided Online Course gives you a solid introduction to a critical issue.
Understanding the NEC requirements for grounding and bonding of electrical systems is vital, and the NFPA 70®: National Electrical Code® (NEC) System Grounding and Bonding Self-Guided Online Course lets you work at your own pace to improve your grasp of a complex issue.
Developed by Code authorities, online lessons cover the reasons why the National Electrical Code requires a grounded circuit conductor in some systems. Learn about the definitions of terms that relate to grounding of systems; the performance requirements for grounded systems; the systems that are required, permitted, or not permitted to be grounded; and the methods of grounding those systems. Grounding of systems supplied by a utility will be discussed along with systems that are created or generated as part of the wiring of a building or other premises. (Grounding and bonding of equipment within the premises will be covered in another module in the NEC Self-Guided Online Series.)
Upon completion you should be able to:
- Explain what is meant by grounded and ungrounded systems
- Identify the elements of a grounding system
- List the requirements for establishing an effective ground-fault current path
- List reasons for grounding and bonding of electrical systems
- Select proper minimum sizes for main bonding jumpers and service grounded conductors
- Identify systems or equipment that must be used to form a grounding electrode system
- Select minimum sizes for grounding electrode conductors
- Determine methods of and locations for grounding separately derived systems
- Select, locate, and size system bonding jumpers
- Explain the importance of avoiding parallel paths for grounded conductor currents
- Describe the methods that must be used for grounding and bonding at buildings supplied by feeders or branch circuits
Who Will Benefit:
Anyone who uses or enforces the NEC including: electrical system designers, electrical engineers, electrical contractors, safety engineers, installation and maintenance professionals, manufacturers, electrical inspectors, and project managers
