Brainfiller, Inc. is an electrical power and electrical safety training company founded by Jim Phillips, P.E. Jim and the Brainfiller brand are virtually one and the same with Brainfiller being where he develops his very popular training classes, videos, guides, articles and more.

With a professional career spanning more than 35 years, Jim has developed more than 20 different training programs and has been helping tens of thousands of people around the world understand electrical power system design, analysis and safety. Having taught over 2500 seminars during his career to people from all seven continents (Yes Antarctica is included!). He has developed a reputation for being one of the best trainers and public speakers in the electric power industry. Jim’s training is based on his insider’s view from his many leadership positions for the development of various electrical safety standards coupled with his arc flash testing experience and broad electrical power background. This provides him a unique perspective from the inside – a perspective he loves sharing with others. When asked questions about some topics, his explanations often run along the line of “Well, here’s what happened in the lab when we blew it up…” Here is a sample of Jim’s involvement.
