About the Course

This three-day Level 1 class is hosted by FMEA at KUA from August 13-15, 2024. Students will gain a strong foundation necessary to help them advance in the field of line design and staking. This class will include the basic engineering of overhead single-phase lines typically expected of beginning line design personnel.

After completion of this course, participants will be able to complete overhead transformer and service conductor sizing, calculate accurate guy leads for both angle and dead end situations, interpret and implement sag charts in clearance design, and navigate the NESC in order to locate important rules and tables necessary for safe design.

Course manual provided. Students need to bring a copy of the current NESC to class (not included in course materials).

Think ahead: The next certification course in the series, Power Line Design & Staking Level 2, will be offered December 3-5, 2024; Level 1 is a prerequisite.
