Recommend

214. TE 9127 – Advanced Programmable Controllers (PC Based) (ELT 225)

216. TE 9061- National Electric Code (ELT 230)
Course Revision – Number, Description
Recommend description read: 2
Instructs the electrical professional where and how to find required information in the NEC book, demonstrating how the various articles work together to provide complete information on a subject.  Most code articles (90 through 450) will be explained in detail.  This class can be used towards Continuing Education Units for Oregon State electrical licensing purposes. ELT 230 and APR 230 cannot both be taken for credit.

217. TE 9083 – National Electric Code II (ELT 231)
Course Revision – Number, Description
Recommend description read: 2
Prepares electricians for state examination as prescribed by Oregon State Building Codes Division. Includes code explanations and applications.  This class can be used towards Continuing Education Units for Oregon State electrical licensing purposes.
ELT 231 and APR 231 cannot both be taken for credit.

2:

In general we discourage the cross-listing of courses, unless there is a justifiable reason for the cross-listing to occur.  When the SAC representatives were asked for this justification for the six courses that would be cross-listed, it was provided:  The courses must be listed with the APR prefix due to the new statewide degrees and certificates.  These courses must also be listed with the prefix of ELT for people currently working in the industry who are no longer apprentices.  If the courses were only listed under the APR prefix, current Journeypersons would not be able to receive Continuing Education Units for Oregon State electrical licensing proposes.  The same rational holds for the other four courses later in the agenda, also denoted with 2.
