This two-and-a-half-day class is designed to give participants with no electrical background an in-depth understanding of electric utility operations, and serves as a review for participants familiar with electrical systems in today’s electric utility.
As the world becomes more technologically advanced, those employees who are able to communicate on both a technical and non-technical level will be those who excel. The better an employee understands the utility’s operations and the reliable delivery of electrical energy, the better the employee can serve the utility. This class provides that understanding.
Any electric utility industry employee (utility or vendor) including those in engineering, operations, safety, purchasing, information technology, regulatory and rates, customer service, public relations, legal, accounting, as well as utility commissioners and board members, will benefit and gain a better understanding of electric utility operations by attending this class.
