Electric Power Hot Line Training - Single Phase Systems

EPP039 - 24.00 Hours

Description

Electric Power Hot Line Rubber GlovingThe Electric Power Hot Line Training - Single Phase Systems course provides participants with the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary to perform distribution work from an insulated aerial device using rubber gloving, a rubber protective cover-up, and insulated hot line tools on single-phase circuits. During the course, students utilize the TEEX Hot Line training field to perform tasks while elevated almost 40 feet under simulated energized conditions. At the completion of this course, participants are able to select methods and procedures to perform assigned duties on energized circuits under supervision.
