In summary I've gone from a simple Journeyman Electrician working out in the construction field. To a Master Electrician with ICC Certification.
as an Electrical Inspector to a Senior Electrical Inspect to a Senior Electrical Plans Examiner and now a Shop Foreman for a Private Electrical Company.

I hope to grow more and more as a leader.
