About Us

Norm Erickson, author and creator of the Pocket Tradesman™, has been selling his product since 2000. Having been a Pipefitter and Supervisor in the oil and gas industry for over 20 years, Norm developed this product as a way to help himself on the job. After lending it to coworkers and receiving overwhelming feedback on its value and effectiveness, he began putting the manual into production for public use.
