Session #1 is about “Electrical Defects & Electrical Safety, etc”
The Chapter is proud to have Jason Brozen, Master Electrician at Capitol Electric put on a training seminar for us. Jason has been an electrician for 30 yrs and a Master Electrician for 24 yrs, working with some of the oldest and largest electrical contractors in the KC area like Tann Electric and Teague Electric. Jason has served on the Board of Advisors for Vatterott College, and taught CE classes for KCP&L as well as providing Expert Witness assistance for attorneys in cases of incorrect or faulty wiring installations and defects, etc. Jason has also been a speaker for other home inspection associations like ASHI at both their annual National Educational Seminars, and at their regional chapter seminars also.
Jason’s class will be discussing Knob & Tube and Aluminum Wiring; Split Buss Panels, proper wiring of Sub-Panels (4-wires, neutral/ground mixed, grounding, etc); proper breaker types for each panel; Problematic Panels like FPE, Zincsco, etc; as well as more common electrical defects. Another VERY important part of Jason’s class will be on SAFETY when doing electrical inspections. Jason himself was victim of an Arc Flash accident several years ago and has some very vivid and terrifying slides of the aftermath of that event.
