Pole Framing and Guying

SKU: TDPFG00CENDuration: 60 Minutes

The purpose of this course is to teach several approaches to framing and guying utility poles. Several types of construction that are in common use are presented. Several approaches to framing poles are demonstrated: single crossarm, multiple crossarm, armless, and vertical construction. Techniques for positioning and installing guy wires are also explained. At the conclusion of this course, participants should be able to describe several types of construction. They should be able to install crossarms and insulators on utility poles. They should also be able to explain the considerations involved in selecting and positioning guys and anchors and to demonstrate how to install a guy wire.
