Nolan Barr, CCCTC Electrical Occupations Student, Utilizing Wiring Skills

First year students in the Electrical Occupations program at the Clearfield County Career and Technology Center (CCCTC) are currently utilizing their skills by wiring switches in the faux house frame located in the program.  Pictured is Electrical Occupations student, Nolan Barr from Clearfield Area High School, wiring a four-way switch.  A four-way switch is similar to a three-way, except it has four terminals (plus a ground terminal) and controls one fixture from three locations. This type of switch must be combined between two three-way switches to form a circuit. While more uncommon, this is a good option for large rooms with several entrances.
