This course covers grounding requirements and grounding methods of the National Electrical Safety Code that are to be applied to electric supply and communication utility systems. This course does not cover the theory of grounding. After completing this course, the reader will be able to:
Identify electric supply and communication parts required to be grounded.
Identify correct methods for grounding parts.
Determine appropriate grounding connections.
Determine appropriate materials for grounding conductors and electrodes.
Understand under what conditions different types of electrodes may be most effective.
Identify which conductive items can be connected together and which cannot.
Determine appropriate connections between supply and communication grounding systems at served structures.
