The reliability of any utility’s system is highly dependent on underground cable and the overall quality of its installation. MEUW’s two-day Underground Distribution (UD) School offers an ideal opportunity for lineworkers to learn and practice hands-on techniques in a simulated field setting in order to sharpen their skills, review practical applications and safely perform tasks in a controlled environment.

Topics covered include the basics of underground wire construction and high-stress failure points, 600 amp elbow mounting, proper splice-pit grounding, as well as sectionalizing, hi-potting and thumping cable and the safe operations of a trencher. Attendees are certain to leave with refreshed skills and new on-the-job insights that can be immediately applied to their work. 


This workshop has been canceled because of pandemic-related travel restrictions impacting many of the presenters and participants. Those who had registered and paid will be contacted directly with details to receive a refund.
