The Electric Power Substation Equipment Operations course helps participants become more familiar with the layout of industry specific equipment, power transformers, oil circuit breakers, re-closers, and switchgear through instructor-led demonstrations and hands-on field exercises. During training, students will be provided information on substation terms, symbols, and one-line diagrams. At the conclusion of training, participants will have the knowledge, skills, and abilities required to read a one-line diagram, identify and understand substation equipment symbols, better understand substation safety requirements, and apply switching procedures for various buss configurations.
There are no prerequisites for this course.

Class attendance is an essential part of the education process and participants in TEEX courses are expected to attend all class sessions and field exercises. This course requires participants to attend a minimum of 80% of the class hours as a component of successful course completion. During the course, your instructor will review any additional attendance requirements, for example a field exercise that cannot be missed.
It is recommended, but not required, participants complete the Electric Power Principles (EPP009) and Electric Utilities Single-Phase Transformers, Regulators, and Capacitors (EPP226) courses.
