The State of Minnesota Board of Electricity requires that technicians doing electrical work in a residence or commercial building must hold an Electricians License. This includes low voltage systems, such as telecommunications voice or data circuits, which requires the individual to have a Low Voltage Electrical License. The License is renewable every two years and requires 16 hours of Continuing Education 4 hours on the NEC Code and 12 hours on the statutes and rules governing electrical installations or technical topics related to electrical installations and equipment. This seminar is Certified by the Department of Labor Industry (course number 101203.01) and meets the requirements for 8 hours of non-NEC Code Continuing Education.
This 8-hour training seminar is specifically related to the electrical installation of telecommunications equipment for proper bonding and grounding for personnel and equipment protection from lightning and AC power fault conditions. This seminar pertains to telecommunications circuits and equipment that are in, on or service to buildings including residential, commercial and telephone buildings (Central Offices, Remotes, Cabinets, etc.). This seminar explains not only the requirements but also the technical reasons for the requirements. The attendee will have a much better understanding of why the requirements exist.
