1 hr. Online Course

Level: Intermediate

Item#: RVI-11445

SME: Brady Hansen

The purpose of this course is to teach participants the kinds of information that can be obtained by reading electrical system diagrams and to illustrate how this information can be used to assist lineworkers who work on electrical systems. Practical examples of how to get information are given throughout the course. At the conclusion of this course, participants should know what kind of information is typically found on construction diagrams, on schematic diagrams, and in specification manuals. They should know how to use all of these references to determine the information necessary to do a job.
Course Objectives
By the end of this course, you will be able to:
  • Understand how to read a construction diagram so you can locate a job site and determine work required of an electrical system.
  • Determine the material requirements on an electrical system by using a construction diagram and specification manual.
  • Explain the different kinds of information found on schematic diagrams and how to find that information.
  • Understand how to locate components at a job site by using a construction diagram.
Brady Hansen began working in telecommunications as a tower climber. When the fiber optic boom began, he transitioned into telecommunications line work. When Brady found out about the Northwest JATC apprenticeship and the line trade, he found work in the Seattle area until he could get a power lineman apprenticeship. He entered the NWJATC and became an apprentice lineman. Brady worked for companies such as Wilson Construction, Avista, and BPA. Along the way,  Mr. Hansen served in a number of leadership roles, but has found the most fulfillment in working as an apprentice instructor. He began doing international volunteer training for lineworkers and helped found Electrical Workers With Borders. Currently, Brady is working to improve lineman safety in South America and Asia. He accepted a position with Idaho manufacturer Safeguard Equipment. They make a groundbreaking new personal voltage detector called the Compass. Brady recently founded his own training company called Written in Red Inc. to improve safe practices in the line trade. Mr. Hansen is honored and fortunate to be a journeymen lineman and hopes to be climbing poles in the years to come.
