This course will provide a thorough overview of the various sections of NFPA 70 (2014), also known as the National Electrical Code, that apply to alarm systems. The purpose of the National Electrical Code is the practical safeguarding of persons and property from hazards arising from the use of electricity. The code will not tell how to design the needed circuits, nor tell you how to install devices. It assumes workers already know this information. This course will focus on the parts of the code that specifically apply to fire alarm systems. After completing this course, students will be able to define the purpose and the intention of the NEC, identify specific definitions and terms that are fundamental to interpreting all code standards, and understand how this code is used in Fire Alarm installations.
