James Imlah (Jim) is a well-respected continuing education provider with a reputation for having a contagious passion for all things electrical. He provides electrical continuing education credits out of love for the work, to keep current with new technology (pun intended), and to stay in touch with the constantly shifting demands of the electrical industry. But, with well over 30 years of experience in the electrical industry, he finds the most joy in sharing his hard-won knowledge and expertise. Along with his tremendous experience as an electrician and electrical inspector, Jim has developed an extensive network of contacts and friends in his years of involvement with the International Association of Electrical Inspectors (IAEI) and National Fire Protection Association (NFPA).
