DALLAS — In keeping with AVO Training’s philosophy of offering the types of electrical safety training courses industry and utilities require today, two new subjects have been added to the more than 50 courses currently available at the institute.
Infrared Thermography Level I: This training is designed around the entry-level infrared camera user and will benefit the student who has a desire to learn the basics of infrared thermography. The student who completes the training requirements and a thermography field assignment will receive an Infrared Thermography Level I certification. The course will teach the basics of infrared, how to operate the camera under different conditions and how to make a judgment of the measurement situation in the field and identify potential sources for error. An Infrared Thermography Level II course will be added during 2014.
Circuit Breaker Maintenance — SF6: Today as utility infrastructures are reaching middle age and the number of equipment replacements is growing, oil-filled breakers are being replaced almost exclusively with SF6-filled equipment. SF6 now dominates the higher voltage classes, and all indications are this trend will continue through the lower voltage classes. This hands-on course intended for new or experienced electricians and technicians that install, maintain, repair or troubleshoot SF6 circuit breakers rated at 34.5 kilovolts and higher. This course covers all elements of SF6 circuit breaker maintenance, from routine inspection to major overhaul.
