This online course includes a series of videos and readings that follow a commercial electrical inspection of an historic bank building in Wyoming. There is a final exam at the end of the course. Upon successful completion, the student will be able to download a Certificate of Completion for the course.

Goal

The goal of this course is to teach the student the key items to look for during a commercial property inspection of the electrical system and its components. Many of the items and defects pointed out in this course are in accordance with the National Electrical Code (NEC)®, and are common findings within various commercial property types and renovated buildings.

Although a commercial property inspector is not a code official, it’s important for the inspector to be familiar with these items while performing an inspection, conducting research on a property, and/or reviewing documents provided by a specialty consultant.

Objectives
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • identify common defects at a commercial property’s electrical system;
  • define common electrical terms and their applications; and
  • perform an electrical inspection of a historic commercial building.
