Do you cover the entire Analysis? If so how mush time do you take and are there amendments at a local or state level covered. I have to cover the Mass Amendments and there are some new items that change the NEC, especially the deletion of 300.4(D)

Hi Joe. No, I don't cover the whole analysis. I use the analysis slides as wall as Mike Holt's, plus a lot of my own material. I try to cover as much as I can in an 8 hour class, but that typically means getting through chapter 4 or maybe chapter 5.
I'm lucky in that we don't have any amendments.
How have your classes gone? Are you doing 8 or 16 hours on the changes, etc.?

Most of the seminars I present in Massachusetts at to provide an update consisting of 15 hours that will include the major changes, and MA amendments with an additional 6 hours for 21 hours total and some classes will include 70E, Inspection Process, Grounding and Bonding and anything that is electrically related to the license holder.
I carry materials that can be modified as necessary with over 100 GB of files. I even go onto the net and post questions during my classes.
For open seminars the two day classes are offered to cover the Code and anything that is requested.
For example, some want to know about rules related to industrial maintenance and installations, and in other locations they want to discuss the code in general.
I always ask them at the beginning of the class to tell me why they came to the seminar and what they expect to learn.
I just finished a 15 hour class where over 250 MA Licensed electricians fulfilled their 15 hours.
