Does opening up the electrical fuse box cause you anxiety? Would you like to take your electrical skills past changing lightbulbs? Toni DiNoto—SUNY Delhi electrical instructor and 25-year veteran electrician—is offering an introductory two-session basic electrical workshop. Her goal is to teach community members the basics of electricity, code compliance, and safe electrical procedure, and offer a hands-on workshop.

DiNoto will discuss basic theory, code, and use of testers to insure safe installations. Participants will work off project boards and install wires to energize a single pole switch and light plus a receptacle. If you barely understood that last sentence, this is the workshop for you!

Tools and supplies will be provided, or bring your own: wire strippers, lineman, screwdriver, box cutter.

All participants will be required to bring safety glasses and two electrical testers; specs provided upon registration; all available for purchase at Dubbens down the street for about $30 total.

This two-session workshop is offered to community members (ages 18+) for $85 plus the required safety glasses and testers noted above. Class size is limited; register online at the link below to save your spot. If the price of the workshop is a barrier for you to attend, please email us at info@bushelcollective.org and we will work it out.

Workshop registration is now closed, but please email to be placed on waitlist or to hear about next electrical workshop.


* You will be required to sign this waiver upon arrival to the first class.
