Electrical terms sound familiar, but how they work in your home might be a bit of a mystery: Amp, volt, 100, 220, three pole, four pole, wire gauge, and on and on. But the fact of the matter is that with a little bit of time and instruction, you can learn how to do most electrical projects in your home and manage them safely. This is an opportunity to become competent and confident about wiring. It’s actually safer than driving once you understand a few little principles.
Shelter is offering a Home Wiring course on Saturday, June 1st, 2013 with instructor Pat Hennin, who has been teaching wiring for nearly 40 years. He shares the how of electricity, so you can understand the why. He will describe electricity and how to control it in simple, non-technical language.
Learn How Electricity Works and Wire Your Entire Home
Spend the day at the Shelter Campus, and learn how to wire your entire home. Whether you want to build your own home, be your own general contractor, or have a home that you want to understand better, this class will give you a comprehensive understanding of home wiring. You can make changes to your home and effectively deal with any problems that occur.
We will discuss residential wiring and how to wire a house that conforms to the National Electrical Code. This is followed by a discussion of how electricity actually ends up in the house. Finally, we break into small groups to practice wiring sample panels, switches, and lights. This is a small investment that can save you a lot of time, money, and worry.
