Electrical Print Reading - flexible length program

This flexible length program was designed, and is taught, by utility safety professionals, each with over 40 years of experience on electrical systems up to 500kV. We customize it to your specific needs and it can range from one to five days in length. It is taught both to electricians and non-electricians.

The ability to fluently read electrical prints is required by managers, engineers, electricians, related trades and sometimes operators. The ability to read certain types of prints is legally mandated for some job functions.

Since 1980, Canada Training Group has trained over twenty two thousand international participants to operate, maintain and troubleshoot electrical systems to 230kV following industry safe practices and procedures.
