Congratulations Steven Floyd & Peter Giannino for winning this weeks QOTW.
Good job for two winners this week!
Follow the directions to obtain your books.

**The answer to #2, I was thinking of 4 total for the answer.
Based on:
Single-Pole Breakers
Double-Pole Breakers
GFCI Circuit Breakers
AFCI Circuit Breakers

I realize “standard” has 2 separate classifications making a total of 4.
So… … … I don’t know if you or I are technically correct :thinking:

Congratulations Steven Floyd and Peter Giannino!

Missed it by one…

Congratulations Steven Floyd and Peter Giannino!

Good decision Marc on the two winners.

What about tandems?

Wow Thanks… I also got my answer from Grainger at the same link it had single and double under standard, so that’s what I went with. This was the sentence that made the decision for me " Standard Circuit Breakers come in two varieties: single-pole breakers and double-pole breakers."
