Mark your calendars for the return of one of IAMU’s popular workshops. Skip Collier of Professional Training Systems, Inc. will be presenting his Electric Utility System Operation Short Course August 2 – 4 and the Smart Grid Course on August 5.
Skip is very well regarded and has an extensive background in electric utility design, construction, maintenance and operation.
The EUSO Short Course is designed for any employee whose job performance will benefit from a basic understanding of the operations side of the business. This includes those from legal, rates, engineering, purchasing, computer application, marketing, customer service, inventory control, finance, accounting, safety, risk analysis as well as those from generating plants. One goal for this class is to have students leave with the ability to easily identify all of the electrical equipment they see in a substation as they walk by, along with all the equipment found on the poles in a residential area. Non-electrical engineers are often at a disadvantage in the electric utility environment due to a lack of familiarity with technical issues. The better you understand the utility’s product – electrical energy – and how it is created and distributed, the better you can serve the utility and your customers. This course assumes no electrical background, and builds on the basics to provide a comprehensive understanding of the equipment and operations.
In addition to the EUSO course, Skip will offer his Smart Grid Course. This class explains what a grid is, the differences between a dumb grid and a smart grid, and the mandates that ensure a smart grid will be implemented in each utility. Once again, this course assumes no electrical background, and builds on the basics to provide a comprehensive understanding of the equipment and operations. Participants, however, who have attended the EUSO course will better understand the true capabilities of a smart grid.
