Course Descriptions & Continuing Education

  • Solar PV Systems based on the 2017 NEC (8h): The 2017 edition of NFPA 70 National Electrical Code dramatically changes the practical safeguards for PV systems. It introduces more changes to Article 690, Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Systems, than any revision cycle since 1984, when the NEC first adopted Article 690.This course will review all of the critical requirements for the proper installation of PV systems by the NEC and will focus on significant changes made in the 2017 versions. Articles to be reviewed include 690 - PV Systems, 691 - Large-Scale PV Electric Power Production Facility (NEW), 705 - Interconnected Electrical Power Production Sources, 706 - Energy Storage Systems (NEW), 710 - Stand-alone Systems (NEW), 712 - DC Microgrids (NEW). The course is intended for: Oregon State Certified Electricians, Electrical Contractors, Electrical Inspectors, Building Officials, Engineers and Designers.  
    • CEU: This course is eligible for 8 hours NABCEP CE credit. If taken in Oregon, this course offers 8 hours Code Related (Code Change pending) CE through OR BCD. If taken in Washington, this course offers 8 hours for either NEC Code and Industry Related Electrical CE through WA Dept of L&I.
  • Solar PV Systems Best Practices & Energy Trust Installation Requirements (4h) :The Solar PV Systems Best Practices will provide participants with knowledge of the industry's current best practices and Energy Trust of Oregon's current installation requirement to ensure consistent and uniform installations for Photovoltaic (PV) systems.
