2017 NEC Changes: Hazardous Locations

1 hr. Online Course

Level: Intermediate

Item#: RV-11112

SME: Ryan Jackson

Chapter 5 of the 2017 National Electrical Code (NEC) contains requirements for special occupancies. In this interactive online course, we will review several changes that were made in Articles 500 through 516 for hazardous locations. Notable changes include the relocation of fourteen definitions to Article 100, a surprising new allowance for wiring methods in Class I locations, underground wiring changes for commercial garages and fuel dispensing locations, and new fuel storage classification requirements.
Course Objectives
At the end of this course, you will be able to:
  • Describe the changes to class one, division two wiring methods 
  • Know the requirements for cable seals at class one locations 
  • Discuss how the code handles area classification in commercial garages 
  • Describe the changes for underground wiring for both fuel dispensing facilities and commercial garages 
  • Explain the rules for emergency disconnect at fuel dispensary facilities

Ryan Jackson Photo
Ryan Jackson is a combination inspector in the Salt Lake City, Utah, area. He began his career as a carpenter while in high school, and began doing electrical work at the age of 18. At the age of 23 Ryan landed his first job as an electrical inspector, and subsequently became certified in building, plumbing, and mechanical inspection, as well as building and electrical plan review. Two years after becoming an inspector, he was approached by a friend in the area asking him to fill in at an electrical seminar for him. After his first class he was hooked, and is now a highly sought after seminar instructor. Ryan has taught in several states, and loves helping people increase their understanding of the Code.

 

He has been involved in writing and editing over 25 books on the National Electrical Code, and has taught the subject in multiple states and for multiple colleges and universities. He is self-employed as an NEC® consultant and inspector.

 
When Ryan isn’t working, he can often be found in his garage turning wood on his lathe, in his basement exercising, or any quiet place where he can dive into a book. He is also a rabid University of Utah football fan. Ryan married his high school sweetheart, Sharie, and they have two beautiful children together: Kaitlynn and Aaron.
