The Electrical Training Network Material

Our course material is a four-year curriculum that is sure to contain information you need to know to continue along your career path in the electrical industry. It has been designed to immediately increase your value to the industry. The material focuses on skills, safety, and an understanding of National Electrical Code® that can be applied to your work from day one.

The material is intended to be taught in tandem with on-the-job training provided by a skilled electrician. Each lesson is based on objectives with exercises, review questions, and quizzes designed to test the knowledge gained in each segment. The curriculum is updated regularly to meet the needs of the electrical contractors.

The course has a strong emphasis on the National Electrical Code® as a vital component throughout the curriculum. Nearly every lesson contains code references with actual exercises and questions requiring you to look up answers in the 2008 NEC®. There are lessons that focus specifically on how to look up information in the code and understand its application on the job. In addition, the electricians who wrote the course have included heavy emphasis on the importance of safety and mathematics.
