I was about 13 years old the first time I bent EMT with my uncle. We were doing a renovation at a church, and watching him bend EMT and then getting to do it MYSELF was a truly religious experience.

When that does happen its good to have a basic understanding of how it works. In this video Juan from the The Air Conditioning Guy channel goes over some quick basics on bending EMT
