NFPA 70® National Electrical Code® (NEC®) is an industry standard covering the installation and removal of electrical conductors, equipment, and raceways installed in residential, commercial, and industrial occupancies. To ensure all IEC members and apprentices are knowledgeable on the latest industry codes and standards, IEC incorporates the NEC® into its national curriculum and training program.

IEC member volunteers sit on each NEC® Code-Making Panel to represent IEC interests in all aspects of the electrical and systems industry.

In partnership with the Apprenticeship & Training and Codes & Standards committees, IEC national is proud to offer NEC® training for apprentices, journeymen, foreman, and contractors.

IEC National provides the following code related training:

  • A Comprehensive Guide to the NEC®
    This photo-rich book authored by industry expert Ryan Jackson gives insight into the most relevant code articles and provides examples and commentary to uncomplicate the code. It can also be used as a resource for your apprentices and journeymen while on the job site.
    • This book replaces the Illustrated Guide to the NEC® used in the second semester of IEC’s four-year apprentice program.
    • IEC chapters may use this text to compliment an NEC®-based course or journeyman test prep class.
    • Apprentices, contractor members, and IEC graduates can use it as a reference book.
    • To purchase a copy of A Comprehensive Guide to the NEC, please contact your local IEC chapter.
  • Coming Fall 2019, IEC National will offer an NEC® 2020 code changes book.
  • Chapter Executive Directors and instructors have access to the 2017 NEC® Code Update PowerPoints (Please note, log-in required to access PowerPoints)
