The 2023 National Electrical Safety Code was released August 1, 2022, and becomes effective January 1, 2023. With many changes or additions to the NESC—most directly affecting distribution systems—learning these changes is imperative for personnel responsible for the safe design, construction, and operations of an electric utility system. This two-day course focuses on the application of the 2023 National Electrical Safety Code, with particular emphasis on the changes to the existing rules and new rules. In this class, you will learn the meaning of the safety code rules as well as how to apply the rules in everyday design.

As we continue to monitor and evaluate COVID-19 levels, we understand that the health and safety of our members, staff, and the community are of highest concern. We are asking everyone to do their part. NWPPA and local venues will follow applicable federal, state, and local health protocols. Assumption of Risk: COVID-19 has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. It is not possible for NWPPA or anyone else to completely prevent the presence of the disease. Therefore, if you choose to attend a conference organized by NWPPA and voluntarily enter onto premises where its conference is held, you are accepting the risk, without right of claim against NWPPA and its directors, employees, or agents, of being exposed to, contracting, and/or spreading COVID-19 and its variants.
This course qualifies for 12 continuing hours. Certificates are available online upon full completion of the course.
