WIMLINGTON, NC (WECT) - Though hooking up your DTV converter box doesn't take a college education, some folks are at a college to learn how to help you do it

They are part of a growing force of volunteers who are making big switch house calls in advance of the September 8 transition.

Southeastern Community College in Whiteville is organizing a team of workers to help residents in that area.

To reach the Columbus County volunteers, call toll free 888-514-7775

If you're in New Hanover County and need help you can call, 910-798-4388, where firefighters will come to your aid.

The help lines are primarily designed for the elderly and people with special needs.

If you're already set of the big switch, you've already passed this course.
