Environment:
This only applies to the breakers with ground fault trip included.

Cause:
How do you test the ground fault trip to satisfy NEC230-95 (c).

Resolution:
Yes it does have a test button. It is white with a ``T`` in it and it is located between the instantaneous setting and the secondary injection test connection on the trip unit. See the instructions below for the testing procedure to meet NEC230-95 (c).
Equipment Ground-Fault Trip Functions Testing
Paragraph 230-95 (c) of the National Electrical Code requires that all equipment ground-fault protection systems be tested when first installed. With the circuit breaker closed, test the ground fault
(Micrologic 6.0A trip unit only) trip functions. For instructions on how to close circuit breaker, refer to the circuit breaker installation instructions shipped with the circuit breaker.
1. Press the ground-fault test button (A). Circuit breaker should trip.
2. If circuit breaker does not trip, contact the local field office.
NOTE:
Trip unit must be powered to test ground-fault trip function. The trip unit is powered if the circuit breaker is carrying more than 0.20 x In of load
current, if the 24 Vdc external power supply is connected or if the Full Function Test Kit or Hand-Held Test Kit is connected and on.
