About The Grounding & Bonding Training Course
It has been estimated that more than 70 percent of all electrical problems in industrial, commercial and institutional power systems are due to poor bonding and grounding of electrical equipment. Without proper grounding and bonding, electrical and electronic equipment is subject to catastrophic damage. Personal injury or death may also result. This electrical grounding and bonding class, based on Soares Grounding and Bonding, 2017, will give participants a comprehensive understanding of practical applications of proper grounding and bonding practices that will help you comply with the requirements of the National Electrical Code.
Who Should Attend This Training?
Plant engineers, maintenance managers, electricians, and others who have an interest in grounding and bonding of electrical systems.
