Default Hello from Puerto Rico

Hello everyone, my name is Brian Soto, I studied Electrical Engineering but I currently working as a Electrical Teacher in a High School. I really like all the aspects of electricity and I helped my father (He is a Electrician) from like 12 years old wiring houses and repairing. Right now I making my own set of tools ( I always used my father tools and in the classroom there are tools already) So I hope this forum will help me to make good choices.

Welcome to the forums.

Are you teaching electrical wiring (of buildings, facilities & sites) or electrical circuits & diagrams (electronics) to those high schoolers?

Hey Muchaco, I spent a year on the beach at Rincon. El Tigre beer was the bomb. And Junior's mother Maria was such a lovely fine lady back then.......

The course is 3 years long and is divided for each Grade (10, 11 and 12)
Mainly we start with the fundamentals of electricity like the electrons, poles, what is electricity, Ohm Law, Watt Law. After that is residential electricity theory and hand work in the workshop next to the classroom. Also they will learn about Industrial and commercial theory, design, linemen work (only the theory) and renewable energy. Also the basics of industrial motors, AC, DC, Controls, transformers, and basics of electronics and PLC. In the last year they study for the Journeyman Apprentice Electrician exam.

They learn to wiring and a lot of hand work for residential electricity, because the limited space we don't have all the industrial stuff to do that type of hand work.

Is a nice job, students learn, I also learn some things that I forget, we learn new things too, some of them wants to be Journeyman Electrician, a few wants to be Electrical Engineers a lot says that this is a difficult job Still we have a lot of fun.

The fact you are able to teach younger folks means you will know how to handle this bunch quite well.

Thank you. Yeah is a new experience for me. Not is the same to work outside or be a student than be a teacher. I'm learning a lot about group control (not a easy task with high school students), discipline and put them to work in the circuits in the walls. Actually I have several students that going to take the apprentice electrician exam and one already started to work. Others want to start college in other areas and a few wants to study electrical engineer.
