This 6 to 8-hour interactive course is fashioned to be of value to everyone from a handyman homeowner to a licensed electrician. The training begins with basic electrical theory and gradually ascends into exploring the various wiring methods likely to be encountered by anyone working on both dwellings and commercial occupancies. This is, first and foremost, safety training. At the same time, this training is intended to explain the “how” and “why” of electrical system construction, function, and the associated hazards. Limited reference will be made to the National Electrical Code, Various OSHA Standards, and the Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace (NFPA-70E).

Montana Weatherization Network members may take this course at no cost. Use the MT WAP Registration option to register with a $0 fee.
