Technical Knowledge Base

Become a NECA member to get access to TKB for up to 10 employees.

At NECA WA we continually strive to lead the way with the services we provide to our members. So when you asked for a more innovative way to access technical information and advice, we listened. We’re proud to introduce 'TKB', our online searchable Technical Knowledge Base, developed by NECA WA specifically for the electrical industry.

Can you imagine being able to search the Wiring Rules at the job site using your tablet or smart phone? Within seconds you could find the clause, figure or table you need, instantly search various Standards, network operator requirements, technical alerts, or download a free inspection checklist.
