8:00 AM - 12:00 PM
CBT Sidney
301 S. Stolle Ave.
Sidney, OH 45365

Join us for a 4-hour training session on the importance of short-circuit current ratings (SCCRs) and compliance with the National Electrical Code (NEC®). With the 2017 NEC published, and several SCCR requirements revisions, it's now more important than ever to understand SCCR.

This training session will also address industrial control panels and UL® 508A Supplement SB to provide an overview of SCCR determination and achieving a higher SCCR.

Ideal For:

  • Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs)
  • Design Engineers
  • Panel Builders
  • Anyone interested in learning more about SCCR

Cost: $25 per person

Speaker: Joe Pavia, Field Application Engineer, Eaton Bussman

Joe Pavia specializes in training on the design and application of over-current protective devices and euqipment in accordance with the NEC and various product standards. He is a registered Professional Engineer for several states, serves on the UL508C / UL61800-5-1 STP, and an active member in IEEE, IAEI, and NFPA organizations.
