Re: OT electricians wanted
do you want to die in your sleep?
I am an electrical engineer and have designed power distribution panels for global use. my experience is with panels lower then 480V/600A service.
If you have an interest in home wiring, buy yourself a copy of the NEC hand book. NEC = national electric code. but remember local laws can super cede what is allowable in the hand book. also look into NFPA79. its my favorite. my other favorite in UL508, but that is for industrial equipment.
most of these codes are or have been written by the fire agencys, because they have to put thier life on the line, when people mess up wiring. because someday, it could catch fire.
study the book. take what ever local exam is required. work as an apprentice for a few years. get the appropriate permits.
