Text Books:
There are no textbooks required for this course.  However, the material in this course was correlated with the NEC 2014 Analysis of Changes authored by the International Association of Electrical Inspectors. The student is encouraged to use the 2014 NEC published by the National Fire Protection Association and read the full text of each change as they do each question.

This is a eight hour online course on the 2014 NEC Changes.  This course covers over 200 significant changes.  The course consists of 200 questions about an illustration or text material that describes the change in the 2014 NEC Code.  The purpose of this format is to teach the student the change through an illustration using immediate feedback by means of a question that can be answered by examining the illustration or reading the text.  In most cases there is a graphic in color illustrating the change.  Using color in illustrations is very effective and tests show that retention is 15 to 20 percent higher when color is used. 

The tests are timed. Tests cannot be submitted for grading until after 1200 seconds (20 minutes of cumulative time.)  The lapse time for each test is recorded at the server and so is the time that the test was submitted. 

 After the recorded tests are completed and passed a link for the notification of completion permits the student to notify electrician2.com that they have completed the material.  The notification of completion form is automatically emailed to electrician2.com when the submit button is clicked.  After the notification is received by email the instructor reviews the records to ensure that the tests have been passed and the required time taking the tests is acceptable and payment has been made.  

The instructor then sends a certificate of completion to the student by email and updates the student's record for continuing education in the State of Washington L and I database for Washington persons and sends a certificate by email and US mail for Alaska persons.  This is usually done within 24 hours after the notification of completion is received.
