This two hour online course discusses the concepts, equipment selection, installation and graphic representation of typical emergency and standby generator systems for offices, schools, institutions and factories. The key principles are the basic requirements of the National Electrical Code (NFPA 70-2002) Sections 700, 701 and 701 and NFPA 110-2002, Standard for Emergency and Standby Power Systems. Complex multi-generator systems for mission-critical applications are not included. Generator power for a fire pump is not addressed (NFPA 72-2002).

This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
