My name is David Walter, and I’m the founder and lead writer at Electrician Mentor. I started work as an apprentice electrician wiring houses for my dad when I was 16. At age 24 I earned my Texas Journeymen license and started working as a Journeyman Electrician. At age 27 in 2009, I earned my Texas Master license and was promoted to the services department manager. I am currently working as a Master Electrician at Alcoa. I have continued my education and I hold the current certifications below:
- Texas State Masters License (very proud of this one)
- Penn Foster Residential Electrician Degree
- BICSI Certified Copper Installer
- Level 1 Thermal Imagery
- Lutron Dimming Certified
- Associates degree
The goal of Electrician Mentor is to encourage and teach people how to become an electrician. It has really been an incredible journey. I have been privileged to work in many different areas, working with many different types of electrical systems. I hope that I can help guide the next generation of electricians to be smarter, more informed, and more helpful.
I have been on Construction Mission trips performing electrical duties in Ghana, Africa, and Belize. Both times I was able to work on a Christian Church. The best part about this job is that you are not stuck working in the same place or office. I hope that I can be an encouragement to you on your journey.
Thank you for stopping in!
