You do not complete a circuit by touching a hot to a GEC.

The GEC is connected to the service neutral, so it will " complete the circuit" in a round about way. Not the dirt!!!!. The bond at the panel.

I am not insulting you, I am explaining gaps in your knowledge base.

In the third year of what? This is basic circuitry that should have been covered in the first year. You do not even have the correct terminology in your posts.

When do you get to the hard stuff?

Am I missing something, isn't the thread title "Amateur Question". Sunny, if you are going to ask a question on a forum, be prepared for the answers. If you think they are insulting, look back at the question and ask yourself was that a dumb question.

Well at times you guys are a really rough crowd but very informative. Despite the yelling and insults, I learn alot from this forum. That's why I'm gonna continue asking question dispite the beatings I may take

You said GEC when you should have said EGC. Same letters, but entirely different function.

Third year of my apprenticeship. And I do understand circuitry. The mechanics love working with me oppose to all the other apprentice. They usually are surprised when they hear that I only have three years. I just love the trade

Well it is addressed in article 250 as Jim said, and the GEC bonds the service to main. The EGC bonds all the equipment back to the main
