Re: First post - recently joined - GFCI without a ground wire

said by iLearn:

... do we need a ground wire to make an outlet GCFI protected? I have heard mixed opinions on this ...

The ground wire is not shown in the diagram because it is not "technically" required to "make an outlet GFCI protected" ... only the hot and neutral wires are disconnected by black magic which saves human lives.
