All of CWET's continued electrical education classes and materials have been APPROVED by Washington State's Department of Labor & industries, Electrical Division and are taught by licensed electricians and NEC experts with decades of experience.REPORTING GUARANTEE: CEU's will be reported within 2 business days and a Certificate of Completion will be issued to you for your records
This course will begin with an introduction into motor circuits from Article 430 sizing motors, branch circuit conductors, overload protection, overcurrent protection & feeders. From there students will begin with basic ladder diagram structure and layout discussing the use of 3-wire control, symbols, and control devices.
This course will begin with a discussion on electrical quantities and theory of Ohm's Law and Watt's Law. We will examine the relationship between these quantities in both series and parallel circuits. Next we will cover the differences between alternating current vs. direct current flow. Lastly students will be guided through electromagnetism, coils and reactance.
This course will provide students with a foundation to successfully navigate and understand NEC calculations for box fill, pull box sizing, conduit fill, deration, voltage drop, and simple load calculations.
This course will guide students through the layout and differences between Washington State's Administrative code 296-46B and the Revised Code of Washington 19-28. We3 will examine how the rules and laws are adopted and changed along with the responsible parties for enforcing each. We will cover specific areas such as licensing, rations, scopes of work, renewals, continuing education requirements and recent changes.

The most important part of an electrician's career is safety. A key to not only working safely but also doing safe installations is a solid understanding of grounding and bonding. This course will cover why we have earth grounded electrical systems and the importance of the equipment grounding and bonding conductors and the theory behind sizing them. It will also cover what happens when the body comes into contact with energized equipment and how Ohm's Law can determine the amount of current flowing through the body depending on the body's resistance at that time. Lastly, we will cover OSHA safety.
This course will begin with an introduction to the NEC covering article 90 and definitions from article 100. As the course transitions into more specific topics, an overview of the NEC layout will be introduced to help navigation. From Chapter 1 article 110 will cover general electrical requirements. From Chapter 2 this course will cover the uses and identification of grounded conductors, branch circuit requirements and overcurrent protection. Lastly from Chapter 3 this course will cover conductor types, sizing, protection and uses permitted.
