Credits 3 / 3 Contact Hours
Prerequisite: Placement into RDNG-016  (ACSR-016). Prerequisite: ELEC-131  and ELEC-133 
This course will prepare students to successfully pass the State of Michigan Journeyman Electrician exam where passing of this exam is a testimony of NFPA 70 proficiency. Thoroughly investigating interpreting and using the NEC on practical applications will accomplish this preparation. The larger objective of this course is to improve the safety and reliability of the electrical systems that its students come in contact with. Because states can add to the code the Michigan Residential Code 2000/Electrical will be interjected into the course.
