About Me


Hi, my name is Gavin. I began my electrical career in 2010 as an apprentice electrician for a company called MVSS which specializes in MV installations, cable jointing, commissioning, testing, and verification. During my time working for MVSS I worked in data centers and windfarms all over the world which gave me the unique opportunity to pick up tips and tricks from every type of human imaginable along the way.

In 2016 I graduated with my Electrical Level 6 QQI Advanced Craft Certificate and continued to work on MV stuff until 2018 when I got a new job with a local contractor who specialized in Solar PV panels, heat pumps, smart homes, and wiring of industrial, commercial and residential properties.

I enjoyed this side of electrics until 2022 when I got offered a job as a third-level lecturer teaching apprentice electricians at a local technological university, needless to say, I jumped at the chance.

Ever since then I have been mastering my trade and digging deep into the science of electricity and so far I find it fascinating. The inspiration behind this website is to help apprentices, tradesmen, and the general public alike with the knowledge they need to fault find, fix, understand, and proceed with absolute caution, all while showcasing the ever-evolving world of electricity and how it can be used to create a more sustainable future for everyone.
