Skilled professionals need continuing education, whether they are on the front lines or at home during this current coronavirus pandemic, especially as many states are shifting to the new edition of the NEC. This need for quality training and the renewal of licenses and professional credentials are vital to our jobs now and long after this crisis has lifted.
With social distancing measures in place, NFPA and many other organizations are developing alternatives to help meet our growing training needs. And we’re starting to see results. Today’s online and distance learning landscape has taken on a new look and feel including the capability to incorporate hands-on learning techniques applied within a virtual environment.
That’s why I am really happy to announce that NFPA has just launched two new Live Virtual Training courses that focus on the recent editions of NFPA 70, National Electrical Code (NEC) and NFPA 70E, Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace.
The live expert-led courses allow you to apply what you learn in an interactive virtual environment to electrical system design and reconstruction within an aging building. The training includes polling and chat features plus activities, exercises, videos, downloadable summaries, and job aids to help you locate, interpret, and apply code requirements.
The NFPA 70 and NFPA 70E virtual courses are suited for a host of professionals who work within the electrical industry including system designers, engineers, contractors, safety engineers, installation and maintenance professionals, manufacturers, electrical inspectors, and those charged with facility maintenance.
We invite you to learn more about the courses, including how to get continuing education credits, by visiting NFPA’s website. Additional resources and information about the NEC and related codes and standards can be found on NFPA’s electrical solutions webpage.
Want to connect live with industry peers? Join us each week on our NEC Facebook page for a Live event that takes you deeper into electrical topics with experts in the field.
Remember, electrical hazards don’t shelter-in-place, so while we are all doing our part to stop the spread of COVID-19, we must still do whatever is needed to safeguard the world against damage and injuries due to electricity.
NFPA can’t do this alone. to find out how we can help you meet your training and other professional needs while respecting social distancing guidelines. It's a big world so let's help protect it together.
