I love your code violation forum with the photos !!! Some people are not afraid...

I'm going to take my electrician course on september and meanwhile i'm just wiring a same panel with 4 breakers ( don't worry i'm not hooking it up to the main panel ) to practice myself. But I wonder if I could hook up the ground ( from my 3 #6 Loomex cable ) to the ground terminal on the left bottom of the panel ??

Maybe you could tell me if my wiring is as good as an electician...

thank you very much for your help.

( excuse my poor english )

your ground can go to any ground terminal that will accept that size wire. I dont really call it a ground so much, but a bond. But your neutral cannot be bonded to ground in this panel only at the main panel.

How do you know that you only have copper under the terminals? I can't see any exposed copper conductor.
