Serving as the backbone of Canada’s electrical safety system, the Canadian Electrical Code, Part I (CE Code) helps advance public and worker safety by providing guidance on the safe installation and maintenance of electrical equipment. Updated every three years to reflect advances in technology and other major developments, the CE Code also helps facilitate innovation and create new economic opportunities. But, the frequency of these updates and the sheer number of changes in each edition can make it challenging for you to keep up on the job. Choosing the right training program helps you to quickly understand the new requirements so you can unlock the value of the CE Code. CSA Group can help.

Helping you overcome a wave of change

The 24th edition of the CE Code—which launched on January 2, 2018– has over 260 updates and revisions. These changes come at a time when industrial and commercial construction is growing, governments and businesses are installing renewable energy systems, contractors are increasingly adopting green building techniques, and the workforce grapples with the effects of aging employees and labor mobility.

Changes in the market combined with the frequency of these CE Code updates may pose challenges to your business, as your success hinges on your ability to complete the job well and on time while maintaining compliance. But you can reduce cost, save time, and increase productivity and safety with a training program designed to help you understand the latest requirements and apply them to your specific area of work.
