This seminar demonstrates accurate interpretations and applications in areas such as wiring systems, grounding and bonding, protection and control, motors, lines and substations, explosion-proof areas, fire alarms and emergency systems.

Course Outline
** Updated for 2009 **

After participating in this course, you will be able to:
Recognize the electrical code requirements for electrical distribution systems
Comply with the requirements of the code to ensure they are accounted for in the design, construction and operation of electrical systems
Apply your knowledge of grounding and bonding requirements in the code
Work with greater insight into the protection and control requirements of the code
Enhance safety of your hazardous locations by complying with the code
Adjust motor applications, substations and high voltage lines to meet with the code requirements
Select suitable wire and cable for your projects

Description Designers, installers and users are responsible for electrical safety. The Canadian Electrical Code establishes safety standards for design, installation, maintenance and use of electrical wiring by preventing undue electrical fire and shock hazards.

Excellent code knowledge is a prerequisite to correct specification and application of equipment and wiring in all areas of design, construction, maintenance, manufacturing and the use of electricity. This seminar demonstrates accurate interpretations and applications in areas such as wiring systems, grounding and bonding, protection and control, motors, lines and substations, explosion-proof areas, fire alarms and emergency systems. It also highlights key standards, including the Building Code, IEEE, NFPA and CSA which are referenced in the Canadian Electrical Code.

Objective To enhance participant’s knowledge in key sections of the Canadian Electrical Code.

Who Should Attend This seminar will be of interest to engineers in design and construction, plant engineers and other staff, maintenance and safety personnel, contractors, fire and accident investigators, plant operating personnel, manufacturers, government and electrical utility staff. The seminar will be of great benefit to consulting engineering companies who advise power plants, oil and gas plants, and other manufacturing and processing industries. Personnel responsible for electrical operation of physical plants at large institutional, commercial and industrial complexes will also find it beneficial.

Here are some reviews of the training vendor.
The course was very well presented and the course instructor was absolutely amazing.
Reviewed by 2013
Our instructor, Stephen Lamming, was outstanding and a true expert in his field. He was able to complement the technical air monitoring information with practical real life examples which was highly beneficial. He is an excellent communicator and was highly interactive with the course attendees. This course was recommended to me because Stephen Lamming does an outstanding job. I was very impressed with this course and have subsequently recommended it to my colleagues.
