NFPA introduces live virtual training

QUINCY Mass.—The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has launched three Live Virtual Training courses that incorporate dynamic interactive online components with real-world setting scenarios to help practitioners stay up to speed on electrical and life safety requirements.

The new training trio is designed to deliver high-level insights about the most recent editions of NFPA 70, National Electrical Code (NEC), NFPA 70E, Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace and NFPA 101, Life Safety Code; it comes at a time when classroom learning has been halted due to the coronavirus and workers are looking to skill up.
The live expert-led courses feature polling, chat, activities, exercises, videos, downloadable summaries and job aids to help various stakeholders locate, interpret, and apply code requirements. The NFPA 70 and NFPA 70E virtual courses are suited for electrical system designers, electrical engineers, electrical contractors, safety engineers, installation and maintenance professionals, manufacturers, electrical inspectors, and those charged with facility maintenance.
NFPA 70, National Electrical Code (NEC) Essentials Virtual Training has been updated for consistency with the 2020 edition of the code. The course addresses safe and compliant electrical installation and design. Participants will learn to locate, interpret, and apply requirements in the ever-evolving NEC, and recognize potential problems. It comes with free access to NEC Navigator, a digital tool that helps users utilize the 2020 NEC correctly to get the answers they need quickly on the job.
