Electric and Communication Line Joint-Use...
Getting it Right!

The Association for Utility Line Design Professionals (UtilityLDPros) is offering this in-depth webinar series to help utility line design professionals recognize the need for improvement in the processes and practices used for joint-use overhead and underground electric and communication line design. The webinar leaders will describe proven management and engineering “best practices” which, with proper application, can result in line designs that are safer, more reliable, and in compliance with the requirements of the National Electrical Safety Code (NESC) and professional engineering laws and regulations.

Webinar Content:

Part I of this series was held on September 27. If you would like to purchase access to the recorded and archived webinar, please contact Jillian Wolfe at 512-284-3688.
