Keep your employees safe with additional electrical training

May 21, 2018

Providing a safe workplace is the number one priority for Solomon Corp. That extends from each of our locations to our customers as well. At the end of the day, we want everyone to go home safely.

The company offers training courses for customers in all areas of the industry, including electric utilities, educational facilities, engineering firms among others. While it may be optional for some industries, electric utilities typically require a certain amount of annual training.

“We have engineers and technicians with decades of experience and knowledge, and our training and troubleshooting is another asset we bring to the table,” said Tim Cornelius Sr, Technical Specialist. “Customers come to us, and we do training around the country.”

Most training sessions take place in a classroom setting and can cover anything from basic theory to detailed maintenance. Solomon can tailor hands-on training to meet specific needs with the actual equipment. Solomon offers training in several key areas:

  • Voltage regulators – theory and operation, safety, maintenance and troubleshooting, nameplates, panel programming, and operation
  • OCRs – covers basic theory to detailed maintenance; hands-on is tailored to fit the level of training
  • Regulators – covers basic theory to detailed maintenance; hands-on is tailored to fit the level of training
  • Transformers – covers basic theory to detailed maintenance; hands-on is tailored fit to the level of training
  • Connections – covers basic theory to detailed maintenance; hands-on is tailored to fit the level of training
  • Dissolved gas analysis – evaluation of seven hydrocarbon gasses, plus oxygen and nitrogen, to assess the health of an asset, and a number of methodologies to analyze; examples of DGA reports are provided to practice with
  • Basic electricity – fundamentals of AC and DC electrical theory, from atom level to single- and three- phase voltage, and the history of power distribution

Solomon will send technicians to the customer location to conduct on-location training. It can also be done in-house at any Solomon location, including Solomon, Kansas; Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin; Decatur, Tennessee; Georgetown, Texas; Osage City, Kansas; and Grand Junction, Colorado.

“Training sessions like these are an opportunity to for organizations to help their employees refresh skills or get detailed training on certain subjects,” Tim said.

“We have detailed knowledge of a wide variety of equipment, from most every manufacturer,” Tim said. “We also have experience with performance of different brands of equipment.”

Training can be scheduled sometimes within a few days, however some training sessions, such as annual lineman schools, are in high demand and should be scheduled up to a year in advance.
