It’s an electricians job to be able to identify what’s going on in an electrical circuit, and sometimes this can be a difficult task. Having a firm knowledge of how to use various pieces of electrical test equipment can be the difference in solving a problem and making a guess.

Many up-and-coming electricians have trouble understanding how to use the various electrical testers out on the market.
