Inhaltsangabe: Compliance with the National Electrical Code is a major concern for today s engineers, designers and electricians. On the one hand, you need to keep job costs down. On the other hand, your electrical projects must meet code. And if you are an electrical inspector, you ve got to ensure compliance with the code in a way that is fair, accurate, equitable, and consistent. The need to understand and accurately apply the NEC is great. But, the NEC is huge the loose-leaf binder version, for example, is nearly 800 pages. Complicating this further, the NEC can be downright confusing.
Even common applications make NEC training essential. For example, consider those tables in Article 310. Do you really understand how to size conductors? Do you understand when to use the 90 degree column and when not to? Do you know when to use Table 310.17 rather than 310.16, or 310.19 rather than 310.17? How do you apply these tables when sizing feeders for motor circuits? What about motor branch circuits? A wrong answer to any of these questions can be costly.
How can you make sure you get this right? How will you ever rise above the confusion?
Fortunately, there s an answer. And it s from internationally recognized NEC expert Mike Holt. That answer is Mike Holt s Illustrated Guide to Understanding the National Electrical Code, Volume 1. This resource has proven itself in the field and in the exam room. And now you can rely on the latest edition to provide you with the rock-solid foundation of NEC knowledge you need to do your job with accuracy and confidence.
Some highlights of what s you will understand after using this outstanding resource:
Article 90. Know the purpose and scope of the NEC, and understand how it s arranged so you can quickly find what you need. Chapter 1. Become familiar with the general requirements that apply to all installations. You ll understand NEC terminology, which wiring methods are suitable, and the truth about space requirements.
Chapter 2. Know the requirements for neutrals, branch circuits, feeders, outside wiring, and services. You ll obtain competence and confidence in sizing and applying circuit protection. You ll also understand how grounding and bonding differ, and how to apply the concepts properly in the real world.
Chapter 3. Don t run afoul of the requirements for conductors, enclosures, fittings, cable assemblies and raceways. Do you know how the rules for EMT differ from those for RMC? What about armored cable? Which conductor is right for the job?
Chapter 4. Cords, switches, receptacles, panelboards, and lighting are just some of the Chapter 4 topics you must understand to avoid code violations. Don t let Article 430 the largest of the NEC Articles be a motor mystery to you. And don t let the rules for generators, transformers, or capacitors continue to confuse you.

Mike Holt worked his way up through the electrical trade from an apprentice electrician to a master electrician and electrical inspector. Mike did not complete high school due to circumstances. Realizing that success depends on one s education, he immediately attained his GED, and ten years later he attended the University of Miami s Graduate School for a Masters in Business Administration (MBA). Mike continues today to stay current in all aspects of his education. Because of his education experiences, he understands the needs of his students, and strongly encourages and motivates them to continue their own education.
Mike is nationally recognized as one of America s most knowledgeable electrical trainers and has touched the lives of many thousands of electricians, inspectors, contractors and engineers. His dynamic and animated teaching style is relaxed, direct and fun. The quality that sets Mike apart from the others is his ability to motivate his students to become successful.
Mike has devoted his career to studying and understanding the National Electrical Code, the foundation of the electrical industry. Researching the NEC all these years and understanding its background has not only made Mike an expert, but it has earned him the respect of his peers. AUTHOR
Mike is a well-respected author and developer of software, books and video training programs. He has mastered the art of explaining the complicated in a simple but direct style. His ability to simplify technical concepts makes him one of America s most sought after speaker and writer in the electrical trade. His extensive use of illustration in all of his training programs makes learning fun. His articles have been seen in numerous magazines, such as Electrical Construction & Maintenance (EC&M), CEE News, Electrical Design and Installation (EDI), Electrical Contractor (EC), International Association of Electrical Inspectors (IAEI News), The Electrical Distributor (TED) and Power Quality (PQ) Magazine.
