AVO Training Institute (AVO) has announced the opening of AVO Cable U at its main training location in Dallas. The facility is said to offer a hands-on, technologically advanced, real-world training venue “for every electrical cable testing and diagnostic application.”
According to AVO, with the host of critical issues facing the utility and industrial cable industry, it’s important to leverage training and test-equipment technology to improve existing and future cable installations alike. The company says that’s what its Cable U field lab and enhanced course lineup are designed for: to provide a comprehensive approach to “future proofing” cable systems for increased reliability and reduced costs.
AVO Cable U Courses and Certifications
Cable U offers training in three critical areas of the “future proofing” process for new and service-aged power cables: Cable Splicing & Terminating, Cable Fault Location & Tracing, and Cable Testing & Diagnostics.
AVO Training Institute offers its Cable Technician Certification through successful completion of AVO Cable U’s Cable Splicing & Terminating, Medium-Voltage, and Cable Fault Location & Tracing, Medium-Voltage courses, as well as a new certification in Cable Testing & Diagnostics. The company notes that this offering is consistent with current industry needs to provide technicians with the capabilities to “future proof” existing and future medium-voltage installations.
