Cooper Bussmann now offers free educational and training presentations for electricians, inspectors, contractors, engineers, trainers and other electrical professionals.

Narrated presentations can be viewed online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. There are also non-narrated, downloadable versions in PowerPoint that can be stored on your computer and viewed. They can be used as a self-tutorial or for group presentations. Industry trainers are encouraged to use these materials for their sessions.

The first two presentations cover new 2002 NEC requirements. The 110.16 is intended to reduce the occurrence of serious injury or death due to arcing faults involving people who work on electrical equipment. This regulation includes switchboards, panelboards, industrial control panels and motor control centers in other than dwelling units, which are likely to require examination, adjustment, servicing or maintenance while energized.

240.85 has two new additions relating to overcurrent device applications. These changes relate to slash voltage ratings and single pole interrupting capabilities.
