The vision behind ElectricalTestTech.com comes from Dave. He had the vision to try and expose a rarely seen part of the electrical industry. This exposure would hopefully be interesting enough to make electricians seek out this part of the trade. There is a lack of experienced Electrical Test Technicians across the US, as well as other countries. There was also a vision to become another useful resource to existing technicians in the field. To create a network of common issues that we come across on a daily basis. What may be common for Dave to encounter, may not be common for people in different parts of the world. This information may be exactly what is needed to help a technician tackle a problem.
