RedVector Launches Final Component of the 2014 NEC Code Change Course Series to Inform Professionals of New Electrical Standards
Tampa — April 16, 2014 — RedVector.com, the leader in online continuing education and workforce training solutions for the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industries, launched new National Electrical Code (NEC) change coursework this month, closing out its 2014 series of NEC change eLearning.
First published in the late 1800s, The NEC is now updated every three years in order to set standards for the safe installation of electrical wiring and equipment. NEC is not itself a U.S. law but it’s frequently mandated by state or local governing bodies.
According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), there were 3,745 proposals submitted recommending changes for the 2014 NEC. In addition, there were 1,625 comments concerning the NEC Code-Making Panels’ responses to these proposals.
RedVector enables professionals in the electrical design, installation and maintenance fields to understand the noteworthy changes that occurred in the 2014 edition of the NEC more quickly and easily. The last training component of the series provides a summary of the significant changes for chapters 5-8 of the 2014 NEC, including new requirements, new articles, revisions to existing requirements and deletions to existing requirements.
“RedVector is very proud of its newest NEC course series and its ability to offer relevant training so quickly after the 2014 NEC was adopted,” said Matt Casey, Ph.D, Vice President of Content and Accreditations at Red Vector. “Our team of experts interprets the changes in the NEC so that our customers can more quickly and easily understand the new version. In other words, our expertly-guided courses focus on explaining the changes in the code, rather than simply reciting the new code, making it easier for them to get up to speed with the latest standards.”
