SKU: TDDLH00CENDuration: 60 Minutes

The purpose of this course is to teach the principles involved in working on energized lines using hot sticks. The principles are illustrated by a demonstration of replacement of dead-end crossarms with the lines energized. The same job is used as with gloves in order to show more clearly how using hot sticks differs from using gloves. Method, communication, concentration, and safety are emphasized throughout the course. At the conclusion of this course, participants should be able to demonstrate how to work safely on energized lines using hot sticks. They should be able to demonstrate how to prepare for a job that will be done using hot sticks, perform the work safely, and return the job site to a normal condition. They should also understand the steps required to perform the specific job demonstrated.
