Electricity: Safe and Secure

View Syllabus

This workshop will outline the components of a residential electrical system. Most of the course will be spent hands-on learning how to wire lights, receptacles, GFCI's, switches (single pole, 3 and 4 way). We will discuss the National Electrical Code and how it impacts residential wiring and potentially unsafe electrical situations. Students will be provided with the book Wiring Complete, Revised Edition. Each participant will come away with a healthy understanding of how to wire safely and to code.
