I filled out my W-4 form this morning as part of accepting a position as a part time apprenticeship instructor for the local chapter of IBEW.

I would like to give a big thanks to all of those here who have helped me advance my knolwedge of the NEC to heights that I figured to be unatianable less than a year ago.

Thanks to all, Ryan Jackson

Ryan,

I envy your students. I had (1) good teacher that I actually trusted what he said, and many others that B.S.'ed their way through the class or even on the job training.

Learning the NEC right the first time is priceless (to borrow from the MC commercial).
My biggest obsticle in this trade is having to relearn the right way to do stuff because I was taught wrong. It seems like the first way you learn something is the one that sticks with you. And sometimes I've, learned.... no relearned............ no this is the way it's supposed to be done...... wait... what am I doing??.....get that book AGAIN.

They will never know the headache you are saving them.

Congrats Ryan,
When I started teaching apprentices 20 years ago, a good friend of mine, a chief electrical inspector everyone admired, said
"You're about to learn a whole lot"

I didn't understand the statement, thought it oughta be the other way around, well, it was.... kinda, but he was right, I have learned a whole lot. Some of it downright useful [Linked Image]

One quick piece of advice, no matter how embarrassing, NEVER BS you're students, they will always respect an "I'll have to get back to you on that" more than a wrong answer. Then do what ya said and look it up, that's where the "You'll learn a lot" comes in.

Good luck, I'll bet you make a grand teacher.
