Grounding vs Bonding

Grounding and Bonding is one of the most important and least understood article in the NEC – it’s very important to understand the difference between grounding and bonding in order to correctly apply the provisions of Article 250. Surveys have repeatedly shown that a high percentage of power quality problems are due to improper grounding or bonding, and there’s no better way to learn than from AETech Electrical Training Center.

Few articles can match Article 250 for misapplication, violation and misinterpretation. This program is unique in its ability to explain grounding, bonding and the difference between them, in such a clear and precise manner. This course is approved for continuing education Code credit for electrician license renewal in a number of states, including: SD, WY, NE, MT, IA. Other states accept our class based on the SD or one of the other pre-approvals and it’s accepted as non-code, industry related class in some states.
