Texas Electrical Code Adoption
September 1, 2020 Texas will adopt the 2020 version of the NEC- National Electrical Code. What does this mean to you?
All individuals licensed by the State of Texas as Residential Appliance Installers are responsible for knowing the changes to the code that may affect their work.
Two things that you may want to do if you are licensed in Texas-
1. Purchase a copy of the 2020 NEC codebook. There are many sources, but I have had trouble with counterfeit copies- I suggest purchasing directly from NFPA (NFPA.org) or Mike Holt. I suggest Mike Holt Enterprises- . https://www.mikeholt.com/product-category-list.php?id=1&affiliate=1450762961
2. You may want to get a copy of a review of the CHANGES to NEC 2020. Again- I like the book that Mike Holt offers- Please check it out at- https://www.mikeholt.com/product-category-list.php?id=1&affiliate=1450762961
For people that have not yet become licensed- October 1, 2020 the test is supposed to change to reflect the new 2020 NEC codebooks. In August or so, I will start teaching the Prep course based on the 2020 NEC Code. The Classes that I teach now use the 2017 NEC codebook.
There are some changes to the code. Mostly it seems to me that they have tried to clarify some sections of the code- just to make it easier for us to understand.
