2017 NEC Changes: Branch Circuit, Feeder and Services

2 hrs. Online Course

Level: Intermediate

Item#: RV-11106

SME: Ryan Jackson

Chapter 2 of the 2017 National Electrical Code (NEC) contains requirements for wiring of grounded conductors, branch, feeder and service conductors. Several changes were made for branch circuit conductors, feeder conductors and service conductors in Articles 210, 215, and 230, and, as always, they are some of the biggest in the entire Code. This interactive, online course covers changes that include new and revised rules for GFCI and AFCI protection, dwelling unit circuiting and receptacles outlet revisions, fixing the electric service receptacle rule, adding required lighting, adding receptacles in commercial buildings(!), clarifying how to size feeders, and new listing rules for service equipment, and others as well.
Course Objectives
By the end of the course you will be able to:
  • Explain the new rules for GFCI's and AFCI's 
  • Describe the changes to required branch circuits and receptacles in dwelling units and commercial buildings
  • Describe the lighting outlet requirements that are found in 210.70 
  • Discuss the new receptacle requirements for meeting rooms in 210.71 
  • Explain the exception for feeder sizing between separate connectors
  • Describe the listing and labeling requirements for service equipment

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.
