Building Tomorrow’s Workforce

ABC Nevada Chapter is dedicated to providing education and training throughout the careers of the construction workforce. Because the construction industry changes and becomes more challenging every day, constantly training and educating your workforce is essential to staying ahead.


Journeymen Electricians must renew their Electrical
Qualifications Card every 3 years and must obtain at least 1.8 CEU’s (18 hours of instruction) during each 3 year period.

These CEU’s must consist of the following:

1. A one-day class or eight-tenths (0.8) CEU’s must be from a code-change class highlighting code changes to the current edition or future enforced edition of the National Electrical Code for the renewal period.
2. A 4-hour class or four-tenths (0.4) CEU’s must be on Electrical Safety based on NFPA70E current edition for the renewal period.
3. The balance of the CEU’s can be from other acceptable providers on electrical code and safety-related topics.
Only CEUs issued by specific organizations on electrical code and safety-related topics will be accepted.

NFPA 70E ARC Flash

This is a 8-hour Training Class based on NFPA 70E 2021 covering electrical safety including Risk Assessment, Electrical Safe Work Permits, Electrical Energized Work Permits, and using the tables for Arc Flash Boundary. We will also cover Condition of Maintenance, Working Distances, Lock-Out-Tag-Out, Voltage Verification, PPE selection and other major topics found within NFPA 70E 2021. Attendance or thorough knowledge of Electrical Safety Basics is highly recommended to get the most out of this training.

NEC Code Update

Class covers changes in the current edition of the national and state codes, including additions and deletions. Highlights the more pertinent and commonly encountered changes.
· Review each code change, with impact, starting at the “change at a glance”
· Explain the analysis and effect
· How the NEC put together: Chapters; Articles; Items
· How to distinguish changes in the NEC text
· How to read the code and stay on the subject

Soares Grounding & Bonding

Class reviews latest NEC changes in Grounding and Bonding and enables participants to provide safe, properly grounded and bonded electrical installations. A typical 3000/4000 amp commercial installation will be done in class. Supplemental handouts included in the cost of the course.· Understand the NEC requirements for Grounding· Understand the theory of Grounding· Instructions for reducing hazards through design and installation of grounding in electrical distribution systems

Hazardous Locations

The National Electrical Code (NEC) defines hazardous locations as those areas “where fire or explosion hazards may exist due to flammable gases or vapors, flammable liquids, combustible dust, or ignitable fibers or flyings.”

A substantial part of the NEC is devoted to the discussion of hazardous locations. That’s because electrical equipment can become a source of ignition in these volatile areas. Articles 500 through 504, and 510 through 517 provide classification and installation standards for the use of electrical equipment in these locations. The writers of the NEC developed a short-hand method of describing areas classified as hazardous locations. The purpose of this course is to explain this classification system. Hazardous locations are classified in three ways by the National Electrical Code : TYPE, CONDITION, and NATURE.
