Learn about Safety Training as it relates to electrical rooms, control circuits, and more, including a critical power expert roundtable from top industry experts.

All courses are AIA and/or RCEP-approved.

Electrical systems and rooms

Electrical rooms and mechanical, electrical and plumbing spaces are often an afterthought when it comes to building design and planning. This shortsightedness can have unfortunate consequences on the cost, operations and flexibility of the electrical systems for the future. However, good engineering practice will often go beyond code in accommodating enhanced operation and maintenance of electrical equipment within the room. In addition, the NEC does not cover the many important considerations in coordinating with architectural, structural, HVAC or fire protection disciplines. This session will provide that detail.

Developing a Great Sequence of Operations

The emergency parallel switchgear plays a vital role in any building’s resiliency, however the Sequence of Operation for this equipment rarely receives the same level of attention. In this course we will examine all the parts of a sequence of operation, including considerations and what makes a good Sequence of Operation (SoO). We will also review how the transfer switches could be prioritized based on code and operation of the system.
