I note that on a few other sites they ask for your credentials as an Electrician or whatever.
I'd be the first to offer mine.
On the Internet you can be anything you want to be.
ECN is full of folks that I've known from day one here.
However, all though I hate to play this card, are we all on the same page?.

I did my time in Ashburton here and ended up with the following registrations:
Mike Trump: Electrician: E16715 (Reg No.)
Mike Trump: Line-Mechanic: LM18235 (Reg No.)

Don't get me wrong guys, I'm not down on you guys, but it would prevent a lot of silly things.

I have a list of boring technical qualifications from Slough & Reading Tech.'s and Warwick University, and my '5 years of slavery' Apprenticeship Papers. I am also very proud of my Glowing Testemonials, but that's for another day, I think! [Linked Image]

As I've mentioned in a couple of my posts and am true to in my profile, I am _not_ an electrician.

I am a research scientist working on high performance electric motors, am very strong on theory, and have a professional interest in understanding code to understand how my work will eventually be applied. I also have a _hobby_ interest in puzzles, and in many ways correctly applying code is a form of puzzle [Linked Image]

I try to write my posts to be clear about what I do know about, what I have guesses/strong hunches about, and what I am asking about.

Guess I'm giving away my age here, but I enlisted in the Navy in 1970 when I received my draft induction notice in the mail. I went thru BE&E and Electricians Mate school, Naval nuclear power school, and a couple of others, then spent 4 years as a shipboard electrician on an SSN.

After I was discharged, I spent a few years in a couple of merit shops, first as a helper, then an electrician, and as an estimator / project manager. Then I had an opportunity to join the local local, and worked several more years as a JW, foreman, estimator, project manager - various jobs at various times. I have a California General Journeyman Electrician certification (#108635 - you can look it up online).

I also taught electrician classes at night at a local community college from 1980 thru about 2000 or so. I have a non-credit, community college teaching credential.

Today I work for a large public agency in the Los Angeles area as an estimator, but I also keep my membership in the local up to date 'cause you just never know about these government jobs.

I do not have a C-10 contractors license, and have no desire to run my own business. I admire and applaud those who do!

There are 10 types of people. Those who know binary, and those who don't.

This site has always lacked space for a small profile of the user:

25 years electrician
21 years Journeyman
8 years Elec Contractor 1997-2005 (Currently Inactive)
25 Years Commercial/Industrial Wireman
Design Build Elec Systems
Ground up Elec Constuction
Major Remodels
Gen Sets/Transfer Sw's 5kW - 1100kW (Gas,Propane,Deisel & Keorsine)
Voltages 120 - 12k
On & Off Site Utilities
Telco Projects
Packing Houses
Oil Fields
Govt Facilities

I am now working for a General Contractor. After all these years I'm trying something completley different? Bidding and Project Mgt. Not really so different, but I'm having fun again.

e57, that card is not far off for CA standards. LOL
