Hi y'all. My name's Mark and I just found this forum today. Imagine my surprise at finding a whole forum full of people crazy enough to do this for a living.

I started out in 1972 at the tender age of 12. My dad had just got out of the Army and was wiring houses. I messed up one saturday morning and asked why I didn't get an allowance like the other kids in school. He grinned and said, "Funny you should mention that. Get in the truck". I was his helper for the next four years, when he went to work for Southwestern Bell.

At that point I got in the summer helper program with Local 527.

I've been in the trade ever since. I spent 6 yrs in the Navy as an ET, then taught Electronics Theory at the proprietary and post-seconday level for the next 5 years.

In 1990 I passed the Journeyman's Test and in 2,000 passed the SBCCI Mater Electrician's Exam.

In 2005, the State of Texas took over our licensing and testing so I hold a State of Texas Master Electrician's License.

After a career of Construction and Service work of around 30 years or so, I went to work as an Electrical Inspector. I plan on retiring as one.

That's fantastic. The guys who have actually done this stuff before make great inspectors. We'll save our thoughts on those fancy-dancy "combo inspectors" for another thread.

Welcome.

You're right MD, one of my favorite inspectors is an ex- EC. He's very good at what he does. Smile Casey if you're reading this
