We hope to offer Trainee CEU classes via Zoom soon. There are a limited amount of space available per L&I guidelines. Please check back on our website for the start date.
RCW/WAC for Electricians: 8 hours Trainee Classroom or CEU credit. Covers the electrical laws - Revised Code of Washington (RCW) and rules - Washington Administrative Code (WAC) of Washington State.
Basic Electrical Theory I: This course introduces the student to the theory of electricity. Materials covered include: The properties of electricity, Ohm’s law, Basic circuitry, and Voltage drop.
Basic Electrical Theory II: This 8 hour course picks up where Basic Electrical Theory I ends and progresses to an understanding of parallel circuits, then combination circuits. The course covers: a review of ohm’s law and watt’s wheel, parallel circuit analysis, series-parallel circuit analysis, combination circuit analysis; to include power in parallel and combination circuits.
Electrical Systems I: This eight-hour course is designed as part one of a series reviewing specific articles of NFPA 70 – The National Electrical Code. The materials were developed using American Technical Publishers textbook: Electrical Systems based on the National Electrical Code. Part 1 of this series reviews four specific articles including: Article 110 – Requirements for Electrical Installations, Article 210 – Branch Circuits, Article 300 – Wiring Methods, and Article 314 – Outlet, Device, Pull, and Junction Boxes; Conduit Bodies; Fittings; and Handhole Enclosures. A 25-question exam will be administered at the end of the course.
Electrical Systems II: This eight-hour course will build upon the NEC basics that were introduced in the Trainee Course – “Electrical Systems part 1”. The following topics as covered in the 2017 National Electrical Code (NEC) will be reviewed: conductors, overcurrent protection, raceway systems, boxes, conduit bodies, switches, switch gear, panel-boards, flexible cords & cables, luminares, receptacles, and appliances. A 25-question exam will be administered at the end of the course.
Intro to Grounding and Bonding: This course introduces the student to the key components, concepts, and definitions associated with proper grounding and bonding of electrical services and systems. Materials covered include: the electrical properties of resistance and impedance, grounded conductors, main bonding jumper, grounding electrode conductors, grounding electrodes, equipment grounding conductors, and appropriate bonding techniques.
NEC Codeology: This course introduces the student to the structure of the National Electrical Code (NFPA-70) and methods for locating code information. The class is essentially a “how to use the code book” with and in-depth study of the four first chapters.
