The Distribution Line Design and Certification Programs provide essential training for field engineering training for field engineering personnel.  The Level III training is intended for those individuals that have successfully completed Level I & Level II or already have extensive knowledge of overhead line design.

The Level III training offers students an opportunity to put their line design knowledge to use.  Students will design a double circuit pole line that crosses an interstate, intersects an existing high voltage transmission line, and has taps that cross a state highway.  Students will spend time in the field surveying, recording notes, and staking the proposed pole line.  In the classroom, the students will complete the crossing permits along with calculating required pole heights, guy tensions, lead lengths, pole classes, etc.

The Level III course includes evaluating the use of concrete and steel poles for distribution line design.

Items recommended for each participant includes: 

  • 2017 National Electrical Safety Code
  • RUS 25 KV or 15 KV Line Construction Specs
  • Engineering Scale
  • Protractor
  • Basic Scientific Calculator
  • High Visibility Traffic Vest
