PCC campus hosted Hotline School
Pratt Community College hosted the Kansas Electric Cooperative (KEC) Hotline School from Sept. 13 through 15. This event is available each year and allows linemen from across the state to receive additional training.
“Working with others and passing on their knowledge is very important to all the linemen that attended and to the students who observed.” said Dave Campbell, PCC EPT instructor.
This three-day school has different skill levels and allows them to receive hands-on training while refreshing their knowledge in the lab field. As part of the training, the lines are worked on as if they are hot.
“It’s hard to find dead wire to practice on,” said Stacey Marston, KEC Loss Control, Safety, and Compliance, “This Hotline School has been offered since the early 1980s at PCC and it has been a great location for us.”
