This course is where the practical elements of Utility Arb training come into play. We cover the course description above but then go on to build on this with the practical application of using insulated tools to prune trees away from live network as well as the setting up of non-return rope systems to guarantee the safe directional felling of trees in close proximity to overhead network. We also cover the approved procedures for live line tree work.
