    The 2023 edition of the NFPA 70B Standard for Electrical Equipment Maintenance has undergone significant revisions since the previous edition. The 2023 edition changed from a “Recommended Practice” to a “Standard.” Per the NFPA, standards contain mandatory provisions and use the word “shall” to indicate a compliance requirement. NFPA 70B covers the preventive maintenance of electrical, electronic, and communications systems and equipment to protect people and property from the risks associated with the failure of electrical equipment.

    70B identifies fundamental tests which are required on various types of electrical equipment such as cables, motors, circuit breakers, switchgear, and transformers and other equipment addressed by the standard. These fundamental tests are discussed throughout the training and related to the new Equipment Condition Assessment matrix introduced in the 2023 NFPA 70B.

    NFPA 70B Training ROI includes reduced downtime, the implementation of predictive maintenance technologies to coordinate scheduled maintenance, improved uptime & productivity, increased employee morale, improve OSHA compliance and mitigation of insurance costs.
