webinar is intended for electric and communication utility managers,
staff engineers, consulting engineers, design/staking technicians,
safety/regulatory professionals, and field personnel who are responsible
for, or who make decisions concerning, distribution systems. It is
conducted at a practical level and is appropriate for degreed engineers
and engineering technicians, as well as non-degreed high school
graduates with a general knowledge of the electric utility system.
Participants completing this program will qualify for one (1) Professional Development Hour (PDH)
All but a handful of U. S. electric utilities continue to design, construct, operate and maintain overhead distribution lines. Nationwide, overhead lines comprise more than 60% of the electric distribution system. A much higher percentage of transmission lines are overhead. Because they are nearly everywhere, proper engineering design of overhead lines is essential to public and employee safety, as well as to reliable and cost-effective system operation and maintenance.
utility line design is an engineering discipline that requires the
consistent and proper application of engineering principles and ethics
to prepare quality designs and reduce liability exposure. This webinar
will present an overview of legal, regulatory and ethical requirements
applicable to the professional practice of overhead electric line
design, including attachments of communication cables and equipment.
