Does anybody know if the new code can be taken by correspondence anymore? In B.C. I have taken two courses through Technical Education Services in Chilliwack before and it allowed me to stay up to date at a more relaxed pace. ( I need my weekends off ).

The 2006 Electrical Code is not yet adopted in BC so don't use it except to pass your TQ.
We still don't have a date for adoption and a lot of the delay is related to the legislature not holding a regular fall session. That and some ongoing discussion on the section 10 changes.
