NEC General Requirements (4 credit hours) 8:00am—Noon
This 4 hour course is design to review the basic requirements that are found in article 90, 100 and 110 of the NEC. A focus will be on definitions that are constantly appropriate for the electricians in the field and how they apply to the electrician and the installation. Article 110 will examine the basic requirements of any installation, such as conductor material and size; interrupting rating of overcur-rent protection; mechanical execution of work; conductor terminations and splicing High leg conductor Identification; and space re-quirements around electrical equipment. At the end of the four hours lecture the student will have a review and better understanding of what is required of him/her in the field.

P.M. Seminars

Backflow Protection and Prevention (4 credit hours) 1:00—5:00pm
Backflow is the undesirable reverse flow of non-potable (non-drinkable) water or other substances that can contaminate the drinking or public water system due to a cross connection in the piping. Preventing backflows is important for protecting drinking water quality. The basic overview will be how cross-connections occur and ways to prevent them from taking place. The course will include history of past cases that have allowed contaminants to enter the potable water system causing sickness and death. There will be an in-depth discussion on the preventable devices and assemblies used to prevent cross-connections from occurring.
Instructor: Bobby Doran, PCETX

Grounding and Bonding with the 2017 NEC (4 credit hours) 1:00—5:00pm
This session will explore the requirements contained within the NEC related to grounding and bonding of electrical systems. Attendees will navigate through the various sections in Article 250 including equipment, services, the electrode system and bonding of enclo-sures. The instructor will assist the attendee in avoiding future confusion with grounding and bonding by applying real world experi-ence and a background in design characteristics with Article 250. With many municipalities looking to transition to the 2017 NEC this class is a must to keep pace.
Instructor: Mike Panethiere, M. Panethiere & Associates, PE, University of Kansas School of Engineering

Mechanical Air Flow & Duct Sizing (4 credit hours) 1:00—5:00pm
This session is broken into 2 primary segments; the instructor will discuss heat loss-gain, especially with home heating and cooling sys-tems, focusing on how bigger is not always better. All too often oversized systems are common leading to poor air circulation and shorter life spans on equipment. Some keys areas addressed are:

• Differentiate from your competition

• Provide a higher quality installation

• Save a customer money

• Improve comfort in the home

• Create fiercely loyal customers

The second segment will focus on duct sizing. Spending money on high efficiency systems without a properly sized duct system does not allow the equipment to work as efficiently as planned. This session will focus on properly sized supply and return systems which also will address high humidity, high energy costs, increased noise levels and poor indoor air quality.
Instructor: Eric Kjelshus, Eric Kjelshus Energy Heating and Cooling

Working in the Right of Way…Design, Materials and Logistical Considerations* (2 credit hours) 1:00—3:00pm
