Field instruction focused on the proper application of protective insulating equipment, live line tools and aerial devices utilized when installing and maintaining energized lines and equipment. AMEC and instructors from several of Missouri’s electric cooperatives were assisted by Greg Davenport and Jason Dettmar, Hubbell Power Systems, Brian Jacobi, Central Electric Power Cooperative, and James Coffee, Pike Corporation, during the school.
