Empowering Reliability in Transmission & Distribution

Reliability of Transmission & Distribution (T&D) systems is of paramount importance. Customers flick a switch and take it for granted that power is available. People who work in this industry are bestowed with the public trust to make sure the lights do indeed always come on when that switch is flicked. But T&D is a complicated industry and system complexity has dramatically increased over the last several decades. It is more important today than ever to have operations and maintenance personnel who can safely function in this critical yet advanced environment.
