Our History

Welcome to the Midwestern Electrical Seminar’s (MWES) website. I am Don Nemeth, the owner of MWES and I would like to take this opportunity to tell you more about this seminar company and how it began.

In 1978, I was hired by the Minnesota State Board of Electricity as a Contract Electrical Inspector. While performing electrical inspections, I came to the realization that most electricians didn’t have a practical understanding of the National Electrical Code. Soon after, I decided to use my expertise in this area by teaching National Electrical Code classes to these electricians.

Through these electrical code classes, I began to notice significant improvements in the quality of the electrical installations being performed by those enrolled in my courses. I discovered that I could have a more beneficial impact on the electrical industry by teaching rather than just writing up code violations.

I continued to teach classes at technical colleges from 1978 to 1995. In 1996, I decided to develop my own business in which I could create material that was most useful and practical to practicing electrical personnel. MWES writes and publishes all of our own seminar materials.

For over 27 years I was an Area Representative for the MN Department of Labor & Industry, Electrical Division, which involved the supervision of electrical inspections in thirteen counties. Through the years, my knowledge and expertise has grown into a passion for this field. By developing National Electrical Code classes, we are able to improve the skills of electrical personnel throughout the Midwest.

MWES now trains over 2000 electrical personnel yearly at more than 25 regularly scheduled seminars and at many custom courses in the Midwest. We redevelop our seminar material each year as we are continually covering additional subjects. Because of this continual update of course materials, many electrical personnel attend our seminars every year.

Thank you for your interest in Midwestern Electrical Seminars. I invite you to attend one of our seminars. Let’s work together to improve your understanding of the National Electrical Code.
