Grounding and Protection Requirements for Electrical Engineers Workshop

March 27 @ 8:00 am - March 28 @ 5:00 pm

Co-sponsored by: James Mercier

Early registration and discounted pricing ends on March 14th.

Registration and payment for this workshop must be completed by Wednesday 3/20/2019, 11:59 PM to ensure you will have the class materials in time for the workshop.

Monday 3/25/2019, 11:59 PM is the final day for registering.

This two-day workshop will provide educational instruction for electrical engineers and electricians.  Fundamentals around grounding will be covered as well as ground fault protection and detection, ground-fault currents, ground grid testing, and NEC 2017 related requirements important for the design engineer.  Practical and theoretical instruction for electrical engineers will be presented to help increase the likelihood of proper system design for performance and compliance with the NEC grounding and bonding requirements.  The Workshop is formatted for Electrical Engineers and Designers of electrical systems which are governed by the NEC, and is highly recommended as a review supplement for those preparing to take the Electrical P. E. exam.  In addition, there will be exhibits by industry manufacturers and suppliers.

The workshop fee includes breakfast tacos, breakfast beverages, break refreshments, and a copy of Soares Book on Grounding and Bonding, 13th Edition.   Door prizes will be offered

Attendees are advised to bring a laptop, an engineering calculator, and a copy of the 2017 NEC, either electronic or paper.   

Upon completion of the workshop, participants will receive a PDH certificate for sixteen hours.
