Knowing how and when to ground lines and equipment is of critical safety importance to the lineworker when working around energized lines and equipment or on systems that are de-energized, but have the potential to become energized. 

This course covers both personal protective grounding, using the equipotential method, and the grounding of rolling stock and other equipment found on the job site. Overhead and underground systems are illustrated. The training package includes a DVD/video, an Instructor’s Guide and five (5) Student Workbooks. A discount is available to ISPC Members. Additional workbooks are available
