Illustrated Guide to the National Electrical Code, 5E (2011 NEC)

by Charles Miller

5th Edition

ILLUSTRATED GUIDE TO THE NATIONAL ELECTRICAL CODE® 5E provides readers with a unique approach to mastering the Code, using highly-detailed, technically-accurate illustrations and visuals to break down and simplify the expanding volume and complexity of the 2011 National Electrical Code®.

By translating the sometimes vague, complicated wording of the Code into straightforward illustrations and clear explanations, this book provides a resource that will facilitate comprehension and application of Code requirements for beginning and master electricians alike.

Material is organized logically, covering fundamental provisions first, then grouping code requirements by the type of occupancy, beginning with one-family dwellings and progressing on to multi-family housing, commercial locations, and special occupancies. This organization also reflects how information is needed when working in the electrical industry, better preparing readers for the real world.

The fifth edition of ILLUSTRATED GUIDE TO THE NATIONAL ELECTRICAL CODE® discusses the new Code changes and shows some of these Code changes through new illustrations while incorporating other Code changes into existing illustrations.

Its comprehensive coverage, innovative learning approach, and industry-based organization make this an indispensable supplement to the NEC® whether readers need information on a specific area or need to learn the complete Code

About the Author:

Charles Miller: For eighteen years Charles R. Miller owned and operated a successful commercial electrical contracting company (Lighthouse Electric Co., Inc.) in Nashville, Tennessee. In 1988 he began, and continues to operate, a second company dedicated to electrical related training, known as Lighthouse Educational Services.

Mr. Miller teaches custom tailored classes and seminars covering various aspects of the electrical industry. Class and seminar attendees have spanned the globe, bringing to each session immensely diverse backgrounds. Such diversity requires and receives a unique teaching approach to guarantee that all students within a class are afforded an equal opportunity to learn. Individuals employed by companies such as Ford, Textron, The Aerostructures Corporation, Aladdin Industries; by academic institutions such as Tennessee State and Vanderbilt Universities; and governmental agencies including NASA and even Nashville's own Electrical Inspection and Codes Department, have attended and praised the curriculum offered by Lighthouse Educational Services.

In 1999, Charlie wrote and illustrated a nationally published text book on the NEC® titled Illustrated Guide to the National Electrical Code®. In 2000, he started writing and illustrating a monthly column in the electrical industry's top magazine. In 2001, Charles R. Miller was contracted by NFPA to write two pocket guides to the NEC®. Both books are titled Pocket Guide to Electrical Installations Under NEC 2002.

Currently, besides his writing and illustrating, Charles is a co-host for a home improvement radio show in Nashville, Tennessee. The two-hour show airs every Saturday morning.
