Basic Line & Equipment Skills
Basic Line and Equipment Skills assumes the reader has no background in linework and introduces the knowledge and skills required to become a power lineworker. Students who complete this material will acquire basic technical and climbing skills and be qualified for further training by an electric utility or contractor.
The book covers basic electricity, truck tools, materials used in overhead distribution, wires and wire sizes, ropes and rigging, transformers, fuses, cover-up, grounding, minimum approach distances, and digger-derrick truck operations. The course combines classroom training with fieldwork: climbing poles and working with trucks. Trainers at Georgia Power carefully assembled this book for pre-apprentice training programs offered by four community colleges in Georgia. Instructors: see 500-INS.
