Even when a utility company successfully recruits a young engineer, two years or more may pass before he or she can work independently. Why? Because college graduates lack practical knowledge of how a utility company actually works. They are unfamiliar with management aspects of the business. As a result, even the most gifted young engineers must spend months informally "learning the ropes" before they can become true contributors.

This course will substantially accelerate that acclimatization process by providing future project engineers with a basic knowledge of applied engineering in a utility company. It will teach them the project management aspects of modern Transmission and Distribution (T&D) systems as well.
This is the same "real-life" orientation a new utility engineer might receive from his or her supervisors and co-workers. Only it has been structured to provide a rapid and comprehensive overview, with a close connection to real-life specifics, plus exercises and practice sessions to ensure better retention.
