The National Electrical Code (NEC) was developed to provide a set of codes and standards with the intention of protecting the safety and health of electrical industry professionals and the general public. The NEC code is utilized by virtually all state and local code inspectors and the electrical industry tradesmen. Responding to the need for every electrician to follow these stringent National Electrical Code requirements, Construction Book Express, an industry leader, now offers newly released, revised and updated NEC 2011 codes books and reference guides.
The electrical industry is highly regulated. An electrician is an individual tradesperson; an electrical contractor employs electricians to design, install, and maintain electrical systems. Nationwide, separate licensing requirements exist for electricians and electrical contractors alike. Generally, electricians may not perform work for the public unless employed by an electrical contractor. Electricians must pass stringent exams to qualify and to maintain their both their professional status and their livelihood. These reference tools are essential as they are required for study as well as on-the-job reference materials.
“Clearly, having the right tools for individual tasks as well as study guides is very important,” states Lisa Sympson, Brand Manager, Construction Book Express. “To keep costs down while providing the highest quality reference guides and code books, we offer the 2008 and 2011 National Electrical Codes in hardbound, paperback, looseleaf, tabs, exam software, DVDs, CDs and video formats.”
These texts are used by individuals, construction firms and trade schools and provide the information journeymen need to achieve professional status. Their value doesn’t end in the classroom, either. Additional source materials such as ‘Mastering the NEC Changes’ and ‘Dr. Watts’ easily fit into tool kits to provide on the job references as needed.
