three and four-ways switch, install GFCIs for single and
multi-location protection, wire switch loops, half receptacles,
two-gang receptacles and much more.
You'll also learn to understand the difference in amps, volts,
and watts, arc-fault circuit interrupters, electricity flow and
service panels, just to name a few. You’ll learn how to calculate
total watts and determine the right breaker size for the number of
fixtures you plan to install.
You’ll see in blazing color how to wire end-of-the-run and
middle-of-the-run receptacles in ways only experienced electricians
could describe. You’ll also learn the trade secrets of the rough
wiring stage and what all the writing on wiring and receptacles
While this tutorial won't make you a professional electrician, it
will assist you and your crew to feel comfortable with smaller
wiring projects that may be part of your larger jobs. This program
should help you earn many times its small price and avoid a lot of
mistakes along the way.
Large, clear, instructions show you what the National Electrical
Code requires better than any grouchy veteran electrician ever
could. You can watch this video on your computer and come to your
next wiring job full of confidence, knowing that, in most cases, you
can now tackle previously challenging electrical projects yourself.
