THE STUDY OF ELECTRICAL CABLE JUST GOT A LOT SMARTER

After careful planning, design and construction,  AVO's new state-of-the-art custom cable field was completed in 2017. Located in Dallas, TX, it is designed to accommodate our updated Medium-Voltage Cable Fault Location & Tracing and new Cable Testing & Diagnostics courses; it allows cable technicians the most technologically advanced “real world” place for every electrical cable testing and diagnostic application.

Cable Courses

Cable Fault Location & Tracing

Training: Cable Training

The Cable Fault Location & Tracing course is a hands-on course intended for new or experienced electricians and technicians who install, maintain, repair or troubleshoot 5-35 kV solid dielectric power cables. Medium voltage cable systems are the backbone of electrical systems worldwide, yet they are often the most ignored part of the power system – until there is a failure. One of the most important aspects of medium voltage cable maintenance is “fault location.” Cable systems today have higher failure rates than ever before, due to aging, environmental stresses and improper installation. The ability to efficiently locate faults, greatly reduces downtime and outage costs.

Certified Fiber Optic Technician

Training: Cable Training

In the Certified Fiber Optic Technician course, students will learn how to understand the limitations of bending, effects of temperature, how to effectively splice and connectorize fiber optics, troubleshoot a system and confirm the quality of connections and splices. All these skills are necessary to properly install and repair fiber optics systems. Participants completing the course exercises and lab requirements will be given the Fiber Optic Association (FOA) exam for Certified Fiber Optic Technicians. This exam is proctored by a certified FOA instructor and participant must score the minimum (70%) to meet the FOA certification requirements.
