Default Hello to all the Sparkies out there. (New Guy)

Hello to all, I'm so glad I have found this site. I had no idea there was such a thing. Just to know that this is a bunch of sparkies that truly LOVE what they do..........Is a great inspiration. I've been an Electrician for about ten years, unfortunatly I did a lot of residential and just the past couple of years that I've changed to commercial. And has been a rewarding experience. From that I have developed a hunger for knowledge that I'm currently enrolled in a class for Motor Controls and PLC's, anyways I hope to learn much more from you guys! Thanks a lot for all the help you all provide!

[quote=Electrical Freak;39543, unfortunately I did a lot of residential

IMO residential is a great base for any electrician. If I had my way I'd have all apprentices work in a supply house for 6 months and then do residential for 6-12 months. A great base for everything that follows.

Hopefully your classes aren't interactive cd's and that you have an actual instructor. You'll gain alot more by having hands on projects and someone that you can ask questions. Sitting in front of a computer and reading theory and taking a test isn't doing anyone any favors.
