NEC Code Changes

The National Electric Code has rolled out its 2017 changes—are you prepared?

Reading code books can be tedious, but knowing the changes is critical for all electrical professionals. After all, if you don’t know the requirements, you could end up failing inspections and jeopardizing deadlines and cost estimates.

Just as Superman comes to the rescue of Lois Lane, Captain Code will save you time, money and headaches on your construction projects.

Leviton’s Captain Code is here to make your life easier! The Captain Code Guide to the 2017 NEC® Code Changes is a handy booklet that outlines 61 major code changes.
