Power Academy Technical Courses

Full day, multi-session courses covering essential power utility topics.

Our protection and control training curriculum programs cover essential topics including human performance; utility print reading and interpretation; protective relay testing and commissioning; and high voltage power transformers and circuit breakers. We can deliver full, multi-day sessions, or customize a program that incorporates any topics or modules. Learn More

We strictly follow CDC best practices and are limiting capacity to ensure the safety of our students. Our program is a great opportunity to interact with your power industry peers and gain the hands-on training and skills that have been put on hold during these unprecedented times.

In addition to our on-site programming in Lancaster, PA, we also offer live and highly interactive instructor-led virtual trainings. Our instructors leverage graphics tablets, whiteboards, screen sharing and self-study to ensure participants can fully engage with the content, instructors and other classmates.
