After 21 years in engineering, he accepted a new position at Warren Rural Electric Cooperative in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
In 1987, Gary was awarded the Certified Professional Estimator certificate by the American Society of Professional Estimators. I worked in electronics repair for a short while before turning to industrial maintenance in 1994. Brooks was a member of the California Office of the State Fire Marshal’s (Cal Fire) PV Task force that developed the Solar Photovoltaic Installation Guideline, which became the model for national fire regulation. He then worked for Archer Daniels Midland as an industrial electrician until 2002, when he went back to NWKTC, now a college, as an instructor in the electrical program.
When not at work or church, he is an avid fly fisherman preferring the action-packed intercostals for his angling venue. He has taught in several states, and loves helping people increase their understanding of the Code. Leading electricians to doing their jobs in the safest methods possible was very rewarding. Tom feels that this can be accomplished through dedication to your trade, along with a strong education base, honesty, and integrity. Jeff teaches electrical continuing education classes for Western Dakota Tech and local electrical trade groups. Ron became the Technical Adviser to the agricultural, commercial and industrial customers for power quality issues and solutions.
He completed an apprenticeship as a land surveyor, then a stint in the San Diego shipyards as a journeyman maintenance electrician. After hours (so it seemed, really only a minute or so), he crawled out and went to where his dad and brother were working.
He then served an IBEW apprenticeship and became licensed as a journeyman in 1976 and as a master in 1979.
I performed various electro-mechanical upgrades and modifications as well as much needed code compliance upgrades.
John is an active member of his church where he works with the children’s group in a leadership position. Scott also serves on NEC Code-Making Panel Number 5 (Grounding and Bonding) and worked on the 2005, 2008, 2011, and 2014 cycles. Tom continues to put forth everything he has every day of every week for his beautiful wife TinaAnne and their two amazing sons (Tommaso and Antonio) she and God have allowed him the luxury of having.
He has volunteered with the Pennington County Search and Rescue Team for the past 19 years. In 1986, with a keen interest in continuing education for electricians, he joined the staff to update material and began illustrating Mike Holt’s textbooks and magazine articles.
I have lived my life with the belief that education is the suppression of ignorance with the constant application of knowledge. By using Mike Holt material, building power point programs from scratch, and adding his own sense of humor, he’s become a well-respected instructor and code official in the area. I, from the beginning, was fascinated at the diversity of the trade and sought after knowing as much about the trade as possible.
