If you're about to get into the commercial electrical career path, there are some materials you should become accustomed to. The better you understand what we work with the easier you'll know the jargon we use, and what we're talking about.

Many up-and-coming electricians have trouble understanding how to use the various electrical testers out on the market. All of the dials, characters, and options can get a bit confusing if you don’t have experience using a multi-meter. In this episode, I talk about how to use a commonly used tester, the Fluke...
Someone recently asked me if there’s a way to bend PVC conduit or if someone makes a bender or a tool to get a proper bend. In this episode we’re going to cover how I do it.

In my house we have an issue with some people leaving lights on, specifically in the garage. After hounding on the issue, I decided to get a cheap occupancy sensor and install it in the garage to take care of the problem.
For those of us that are more visual learners, I've made this show one that can be followed visually. In this episode I draw out on the white-board how switch loops work, and how to wire them.
This episode is something a lot of green apprentices need to watch. Switch-loops are very difficult to grasp when you're new to the trade, and in this show I break down how to install and wire for these bad boys.
This episode goes further in depth on how 3-way and 4-way switches work. This is for those visual learners out there that need the logic drawn out so they can see the whole circuit in front of them.
In this video I talk about how to wire for and install 4-way switches. 4-ways are very similar to 3-ways, and in fact you use (2) 3-way switches in a 4-way setup.
In this episode I talk about how to wire and install 3 way switches and California (illegal) 3ways.
