Seminar Overview

This 2-day Electrical Grounding and Bonding seminar highlights one of the most important but least understood articles in the National Electric Code® - grounding and bonding. Simply put, proper grounding and bonding protects your employees from electric shock and your plant and equipment from heat and fire. This 2 day electrical grounding and bonding seminar takes a deep dive into this topic and is  aimed at reducing those risks. Additionally, proper grounding of equipment could help answer any power quality issues you may be experiencing.

By bringing this seminar to your facility, we can also incorporate your specific equipment into the training to make it more impactful for your employees.
