Does anyone know of a good place to take online classes on the nec? We don't have any schools within a decent driving distance to attend that offers any kind of code class.

Here are two more sites - these are not NEC but have to do with other electrical instruction....motor controls, PLCs, VFD, transformers, etc.....both of these sites are free

Cutler Hammer Univeristy
This site has a series of intereactive courses that teach basic electricity, fundamentals of DC and AC circuits, transformers, circuit breakers, panelboards, motors, and PLC's. There are 27 modules. They can be purchased in a 3-ring binder for $350, or be taken on line at no cost. This site is highly recommended, especially for those who do not have a strong electrical background.

2 - Siemens has a similar interactive online course... (for some reason Siemens is sometimes hard to 'connect' get errors messages, and at other times you just get right onto the site.....I'm working from memory here - I believe at the top of the page is a Tab titled Training...or Education...anyway, click the tab and it moves you to the training section....register for free and all the modules are available.

There's a great web site for code and continueing education if needed in your state to keep your license up to date. It has on-line test that you can take an don't pay until you pass. Web-site:, also Mike has
correspondent courses you can get. Hope this helps.

I couldn't get to the Siemens page, but I did get to the C-H one eventually. Here is a link to their "Basic" course online. It looks pretty good.
