Online Linemen Training
This training is the first training in the "Transformer Bank Workshop" series. All the the courses in this series use fullscreen, fullmotion video.
This highly interactive training uses clear and concise presentations and sixtytwo interactions to ensure your workers have mastered the basic concepts of threephase power; the prerequisites for the remaining courses in the "Transformer Bank Workshop" series. Vivid 3D animations help clarify sometimes difficult concepts.
Your workers will review basic electrical measurements, Ohm’s law, power transformation, load, magnetic fields, generation, the sine wave, and power phases.
Your workers can test out of a lesson and skip it by passing the pretest at the beginning of each lesson.
This training was produced in collaboration with Otter Tail Power Company and Gordon Solee, PE. The program is based on Mr. Solee’s popular and respected "Transformer HandsOn Workshop".
