ECG’s Overhead Hotline School is designed to give linemen and Apprentice Lineworker Program graduates additional training. The school will be simulated energized. At no time will students handle actual energized conductors. The focus of the school is to train students how to safely move and work on energized lines from a bucket truck. Students will learn the safe operation of material handler bucket trucks, as well as setting poles in and around energized lines. Every student will leave with a complete understanding of section 507 of the APPA safety manual, Minimum Approach Distances, proper cover-up techniques, and rigging techniques.
