Hello,

 

I am interested in learning to become an electric. May I get advice on what is the most basic information that may be expected from me to know stepping into the role of a 3rd electric on set?
Interestingly enough, I have always stayed away from electrical power as that was something that always scared me but now I wish to go into learning about this field.
I have just recently ordered the Set Lighting Technician book ( waiting in the mail) but in the meantime, can someone suggest me some kind of  "breakdown" of some of the major parts that I can get start researching/reading on upon?

 

Such as: 3-phase power, Generator distribution...

 

 

Advice will be highly appreciated.

 

Thank you

I don't know where you're based, but you may find that you need qualifications to be an electrician. In other parts of the world they may be a but more loose, but for the UK you can find details here: http://www.creatives...icle_3896_1.asp
