Co-ops Participate in Substation Training

Last month, the statewide Job Training & Safety (JT&S) team facilitated Substation School at North Carolina’s Electric Cooperatives’ training facility at Nash Community College in Rocky Mount. Twenty-nine students from 13 electric cooperatives attended the session.

The training concentrated on employee responsibilities in a substation by instructing the students on substation design considerations, fall protection, grounding, operating and bypassing reclosers, operating and bypassing regulators, hooking up a mobile substation, and substation safety.

“Substation School offers hands-on training to the students in the field with different scenarios set up by the instructors,” said JT&S Specialist Chris Walker. “We would like to thank all the students and instructors for their valued time and attention, and the cooperatives for their willingness to participate.”
