The Association of Marina Industries is offering a new webinar on Marina Electrical Systems. This session will provide a review of the current ground-fault requirements per the National Electrical Code and general best practices for a marina electrical system. Electrical problems within a marina can be minimized or avoided if they are detected early and addressed immediately. The presentation will provide a checklist and many examples of what owners, operators, and maintenance individuals should be looking for during routine marina inspections to minimize potential issues before they happen.
