This has always been a sore spot with me.
Hi’s commenting on electrical issues.
As you can tell there are many here who have the experience and/or the credentials to comment.
As you can also see the opinions differ.
My suggestion is that all opinions be verified and that ‘you’ admit when you see something that you do not understand. By that I mean: “I have never seen this application before and I recommend that a lic. professional examine”.
If you are correct then great. If you are wrong then pay for the experts examination and consider it a learning experience.
By doing this you will build credibility without assuming liability.
Does this sound reasonable?
Example at our state meeting of the IAEI we took a 20 question test.
Most tables had 5-7 people.
The best score on the test was a 17.5, and that table had a rep. from the NFPA.
Without personally being at your inspection some of ‘our’ opinions may or maynot be correct.
Please do not try to impress you clients by acting as an electrical expert.
I hope that this will be read as informative and not condescending.
