Electrical Code, What Is It And Where To Find An Improvement Class
By Dave Donahue
The electrical code basically is a set of rules which mandates how electrical installations are to be performed. The electrical codes vary from state to state but are fairly similar regardless of the area. The national electric code is also referred to as the NEC which comes as a guidebook for electricians, apprentices and Do It Your Self home improvement workers. For those who choose to do their own electrical work at home, the NEC can come in handy. The NEC book, which is updated often is a way to regulate electrical installations with safety being the priority as well as ensuring all electrical installations are safe and secure. Normally a trained inspector is required to inspect any work performed and sign off on the work. For skilled electricians, the knowledge of code requirements is part of their job. Code compliant work is the difference between work that may appear correct and work performed that “IS” correct.
