Description

Distribution Power Engineering Fundamentals is a comprehensive video course where you can learn industry specific knowledge about the distribution power system that you would not have known unless you worked within the utility industry for a number of years.

I have handcrafted this course to allow students to acquire core fundamental knowledge on how the distribution system works as well as how to do simple distribution designs.

If you are a recent graduate of an engineering program or wanting to switch careers to being a distribution design engineer, you will find this course of great help to get the fundamental knowledge you need to kick start your professional career.

If you are looking for an apprenticeship program to be a power lineman, this course will allow you to show the recruiters how much passion and potential you have to be in the trade. And if you already a journeyman, the design knowledge you learn here will allow you to have an advantage in getting a distribution planner position in the office.

This course can benefit anyone who wanted to work in the utility industry. As long as you have interest working in this industry, be it accounting, IT, supply chain etc, this course can help you to get an advantage at work or getting a job within this industry as it gives you core knowledge of the industry that you would not have otherwise obtain unless you have worked in the industry spanning multiple departments. And knowledge is power.

What is your Path?

I will show you what modules you should take depending on what you want as your goal.

If you are striving to be a designer, I will go over how you can do line designs with lead and structural calculations  by hand.

If you are an aspiring entrepreneur, you will also learn about the niche markets and how it will be relevant in the future of this industry.


So let's get started! Let's start your fulfilling journey and mark an important point of your phenomenal career in this industry!
