Testimonials
  • Jonathon | student

    “[Substation I] is a great course! I learned how to accurately do each individual test, like insulation resistance and the contact resistance test, and (of course) HiPot testing, plus troubleshooting systems.

    And, I learned about testing the integrity of your breaker contacts and any and all components.”

  • EDITOR'S NOTE from AVO: Congratulations to Robert!
    This is one of the most difficult tests in our industry ... and you nailed it!

    The National Cable Splicing Certification Board (NCSCB) developed a Personal Certification Program for Medium Voltage Cable Splicers that "allows an individual to demonstrate his or her knowledge, skills and abilities in splicing and terminating shielded electrical power cable."

    This is why we teach!

    “This is a great class for people to attend. It’s a well thought-out class that is great for a general understanding or refresher of the basics. My instructor was great and had incredible experience and knowledge of the subject matter. I would definitely recommend this class to others.”

    — James  City of Dallas

  • “Our instructor impressed me very much. His professionalism and passion for electrical work was very clear. I honestly did not want the training to end and learned an abundance of information that I can use and pass along to my fellow workers here at Norfolk Shipyard.”

    The instructor had a wealth of information to give that was well delivered. Definitely gained some good knowledge to take back to my company to update our testing techniques and procedures.

  • I took you Cable Splicing and Terminating Medium Voltage class back in May.

    I was the one taking the National Cable Splicing Certification Board (NCSCB) test (in Ohio) right after your class.

    Just got my card yesterday; I passed all parts, including the hand taping.

    Your class was definitely beneficial to me for the test, especially the written portion.

    Just wanted you to know it was a good prep for me.

    Thank you again for helping me fix my one stipping tool and all the good tips.
