The 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.
There are no prerequisites for this course.
Course Completion Requirements
Participants will be required to safety operate machinery and conduct field exercises at a height of approximately 35 feet during this class. In order to successfully complete these exercises, participants must be aware of any medical and/or physical limitations that might prevent them from participating in such activities.
Student Must Provide
- Rubber gloves (Class 2)
- Rubber sleeves (Class 2)
- Hard hat
- Safety glasses
- Hand tools
- Work boots
- Long-sleeved shirt
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.
Prior Training Courses or Knowledge
It is recommended, but not required, participants complete the TEEX Bucket and Digger Truck Operations (EPP025) and Electric Power Overhead Line Construction (EPP031) courses. Additionally participants should be qualified to operate an insulated aerial device and have basic construction knowledge of overhead distribution systems.
