USITT Electrical Workshops

NEC, NFPA, Arc Flash, Arc Blast -- for some these terms have little or no meaning. But for those in the industry who work with electricity, they are vitally important. Knowing how to work safely with electricity is essential and requires education and training.

USITT has begun offering that training, conducted by Engineering Commission members and ETCP recognized trainers Mitch Hefter, Jerry Gorrell, Ken Vannice, and others.

The first session was originally presented in October exclusively to a small group of Cirque du Soleil employees in Las Vegas, Nevada. The two-day training workshop covered several topics including a review of the National Electrical Code (NEC), an overview of Arc Flash and Arc Blast, and Personal Protective Equipment, as well as a review of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 70E Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace.

USITT is making this workshop available to other organizations for a fee. To inquire about pricing and availability, contact Michelle L. Smith, Membership & Ad Sales Manager, at 800-938-7488, ext. 102 or
