Who Should Attend
Managers, safety professionals, electric utility engineers, designers, technicians and all field personnel who are responsible for decisions concerning transmission and distribution systems. The course is conducted at a practical level and is appropriate for degreed professionals, including engineers and engineering technicians as well as skilled craft personnel, field supervisors and non-degreed high school graduates with a general knowledge of the electric utility system.
This course does not have prerequisites and does not require advance preparation; however, familiarity with the NESC will be helpful in gaining a more in-depth understanding of the code changes and their ramifications.
