PGE Seminars

 

Classroom view

PGE is pleased to offer a series of comprehensive training courses. Since the program's inception, PGE  has trained hundreds of utility company professionals. Courses have been specifically developed for engineers, engineering technicians, and field relay technicians, which aim to provide attendees with a strong basis of knowledge in relay protection philosophy and design theory. We offer four extensive courses which have been approved by the Florida Board of Professional Engineers for CEU/PDH credits. Continue below for further course details. 

In addition to the Relay Philosophies training courses, we are equipped to provide a more individualized program of courses specifically developed to meet the training and professional development needs of our clientele.
