My son wants to do electrical, so I wasnt sure that this course would be good for him. This course covers Autobody, Electrical, Construction, Home remodeling & Carpentry. The most important part of this whole course is the Life Management Principles. It is a wonderful course for anyone! Im very happy with this product, Im very happy I bought it. I would highly recommend this course.
