“PGE has been offering this curriculum for six years, and we are pleased that we can now offer CEU credits to those who attend,” said Wright. The training is offered in a two-part seminar encompassing the basic theory of protection and control.

This year’s Relay Philosophy Seminar will be held at the Marriot in Lake Mary, Fla. The first 32-hour session of the seminar will be held June 25-28, with the second 32-hour session to follow August 13-17.  PGE strongly encourages registrants interested in gaining an in-depth knowledge of relay philosophies to attend both sessions; however, there is an option to register for a single session.  At the end of each session, participants will be provided with a certificate of completion for CEU credit.
