DIYers are forced to piecemeal their projects due to their limited knowledge. It can become very frustrating at the best of times leading to fatal at the worst.
Years of Training
The understanding and the knowledge process comes from years of learning. Electrical apprentices are requires to attend 4 years of intense training including on the job experience in-between in class training.
