Overview of the electrical and water utility system


This was one of our most popular courses offered  in 2004 and continued to be each year to 2010!

This interactive workshop is titled "The overview of the electrical utility and water utility systems"

 

This is a two day program which enhances ones ability to communicate more effectively; both on a technical and on a non-technical level. Participants that have taken this program rated the course with an average exceeding 93% (based on the 2007 evaluations).
 One of the main reasons that this course has been so well received by both the participants and sponsoring organizations is the use of different learning media. The course is 50% hands-on.  Participants re-enforce concepts through lab experiments, scaled downed working models, videos, power point presentations and computer simulations.  Participants get to use actual workplace tools such as meter reading devices, insulated rubber gloves and live line tools, turbidity meters, and other field tools that are used in both the electric and water utilities.

For organizations wishing just the "electrical" utility or the "water" utility; it can be delivered in a one day program as well.
