Article 100 NEC Qualified Person

In the NFPA 70 NEC 2017 Article 100 defines a Qualified electrical person as " one who has skills and knowledge to the construction and operation of electrical equipment and installations and has received safety training to recognize and avoid hazards involved ". Since Barndoor mentioned his Contractor friend I thought I'd just like to add that a contractors just contract out to other people to do a specific job. They themselves might not be Qualified to do the work. You could be a contactor and hire a Scientist to build you an Atomic Reactor. An Electrical Contractor would be person that has Qualified people working for him ( or her ), or not. Probably most people working for him are not fully trained but you are paying for a Qualified Person. The NFRA makes the NEC codes and local Governments enforces them so have a book with you or you might get a snow job.
