Who Should Attend:

Staking technicians.

Course Overview:

This course is part of the Staking Technician Certification Program.

The communications industry is forever scrambling for pole rental space on distribution structures to attach telephone, CATV, and fiber-optic cables. With right of way becoming harder to obtain, electrical utilities (both distribution and transmission) are combining circuits on one pole line to maximize efficiency and reduce costs. This course will teach students how to handle joint-use attachments by learning how to perform make-ready surveys, measure clearances, determine strength requirements, prepare construction estimates, make final inspections, and understand the requirements of joint use.

Course Instructor:
