Manager, Membership & Marketing

The APPA Academy is offering three pre-conference seminars on Sunday, March 24, prior to the 2013 Engineering & Operations Technical Conference in Kissimmee, Fla. Participants in these seminars will earn professional development hours (PDHs) and continuing education units (CEUs).

"Electrical Calculations for Engineers and Technicians" will provide participants with the basic knowledge and understanding of day-to-day power system calculations and the major components of a power system (their function, control, operating characteristics and limitations). 

In "Pole Attachment Issues," attendees will learn how Federal Communications Commission changes to the federal pole rules and regulations will impact public power utilities.

Participants in "Safety and the Supervisor" will learn how to classify hazards into four categories and how to analyze each hazard for risk and consequences. They also will examine what controls will work to prevent injury to themselves, co-workers and the public, as well as damage to equipment and property.
