This four-day program is a comprehensive review of Chapters 34-43 of the 2015 International Residential Code. It includes examples, exercises and case studies designed to illustrate daily practices performed by a Residential Electrical Inspector or Plans Examiner. Material includes a review of how the UCC amends certain provisions of the IRC, especially with regard to residential alterations and exclusions.
Basic electricity concepts are introduced along with common electrical terms and materials plus an overview of basic wiring and protection is presented. The relationship between the electrical provisions of the IRC and the NEC are discussed. Building permit issuance is discussed with an emphasis placed on the most important issues to be addressed and resolve during the review process.
Interactive learning will be implemented through conducting virtual inspections. A checklist of critical issues associated with electrical installations will also be developed. Emphasis will be placed on addressing electrical system installation issues that should be resolved at the permit application stage of the project.
