The JATC Tournament is an online code challenge where JATCs nationwide were able to test their NEC IQ in a head-to-head tournament for a chance to attend this year's NFPA's Conference & Expo in Las Vegas AND get an exclusive first look at the upcoming 2017 National Electrical Code (NEC). The JATC Tournament was created by NFPA, publisher of the NEC, in conjunction with the Electrical Training Alliance (ETA).
