THANKS BILL!!! [Linked Image]

Caper

As I said, I have been "talking" with Joe for many years on many BB's. I guess I am just a nut, but talking and discussing code is one of my hobbies.

I am new to the ECN. I am going for journeyman (SBCCI) in 6 days!!! I Have been doing DYI electrical work sporadically as a plumber(water heaters, thermostats, etc). But have been stricly electrician for about 2 years doing small stuff for some local contractors here in the south.I have 3 years electrical trade school through NCEER and commercial experience as a helper.
I like working at the hospitals what with all the critical systems, generators, It is definitely a field I am going to love learning about.

Sean WB,
We've met already, but Welcome to ECN!

You've "stumbled" upon a wealth of knowledge and a great group of folks here who love their trade and want to be their best.

Good luck!

I'm an Estimator/Project Manager for an electrical contractor in Baton Rouge, LA. Been in construction about 30 years. I am developing an estimating system based on Microsoft Excel. I am very interested in other estimators opinions on software. This looks like a great resource for contractors!

Oh it is!

Not only do you get quick and consise answers to most questions, some actually create a little controversy, which can be fun if handled like adults.

And not only can you learn from your questions answered, but from the questions and experiences of dozens of others as well!

It's a gold mine of info, and we try hard to be true to the trade.

Allow me to add that, in Sean's case especially, we can't help much in short notice as far as passing exams, but if you visit ECN daily for a year or so, you'll find yourself on a much higher awareness of code and standard practices and your next exam won't be so tough!

I haven't proven this theory by going and taking the IAEI test yet, but I'm gearing up for it again... I still wonder if I'm ready to be an Inspector on a personal level... It's a tough decision... I could get myself shot if I were as tough as Joe, Don, George and others here! And very precious few service installations in my area would completely pass code.

What to do...
