Installing GFCI's and 3-Way Switches | ReBuilding Center (Administrative entrance) | Saturday, 03. November 2018

"Three-way" light switches at stairways, long halls, or large rooms improve safety and convenience in your home by allowing you to turn lights on or off from two different locations. Ground-Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCI's) are important for keeping you and your family safe; they can be installed to protect older or ungrounded circuits, and are required in certain locations to keep new wiring code-compliant. Through a mix of lecture, Q&A discussion, and hands-on practice, this class will teach you how to tackle these two common, yet complicated, parts of your home's electrical system. Skill level: Students should already be familiar with how to strip wire and make safe connections to outlets and light switches, by having already attended one of our Intro to Electrical for Homeowners classes or covered:* what a GFCI is, how they work, and where they're required* how to install a GFCI either as a stand-alone outlet or as part of a branch circuit* 3-way light switches, how they work, and options for wiring them* how to test for proper wiring before and after installation
