The second portion of Chapter 3 addresses some of the newest wiring methods, intended to address situations where additional resistance to stress is needed or where specific applications (such as power and control tray cable) is becoming a more widely needed option. Finally, this portion addresses how to properly size and install conductors connected in parallel by way of auxiliary gutters.

At the end of the course, there will be a 10 question exam.
