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. 

Complete details will be available soon. 

This workshop was rescheduled from its original April date, due to the public health emergency. Those who had registered for the original date can expect to be contacted directly with details to rollover their registration, substitute an attendee, apply credit to future MEUW training, or receive a refund.
