thinking about studying online to be electrician, advice?
any electricians out there?

I am basically a retired cat lady with a solar system and inverters and batteries

getting anyone qualified to come to my house is like pulling teeth here

the vast majority are uneducated and the electricians who do things properly are rare and far away from me

I have degrees in accounting and finance, so I know how to study and solve problems

is it possible to learn electrician work online? what about experience, can I learn enough adequately online to be my own electrician?

I want to have an idea about this before I dive wholeheartedly into it

Iím not looking to go into business but to handle my own issues when they come up in my house

You will have to do an apprenticeship with a licensed elec. to get a journeymans license so you can work legal. Then you will have to work under a contractor. And then.......just forget it.

That's all bullshit leftover from the guilds of the middle ages. Licensing is a scam to keep the privileged in power. You can be an electrical engineer designing satellite electronics and not be legal to wire your own house, due to these stupid laws.

The bottom line is to just read, learn, and do. It's better to beg forgiveness than ask permission(which will always be denied). Asking permission is legally agreeing to their jurisdiction. It's a trap.
