Be sure he checks with his employer first and gets his OK. Be mindful not to slow him down...just ask him to talk out what he's doing at the time and why etc... You can offer to help pull some wire. (notice I said some wire and not His wire
) and do what you can to help out, sort of like an apprentice would do the first time out.
The pay sucks but the knowledge you'll get is worth its weight in gold! I've found a day at a job-site is worth a month of reading books.
