The services delivered will cover the presentation of learning programmes and consultancy within the Transmission Line environment with specific attention to the following areas: •Certificate in the construction of high voltage overhead transmission power lines •Vehicle training (specialised training on related vehicles) •Training and development •Assessments This curriculum is a result of the current need to develop PDI employees in amongst the Transmission Line industry in skills within this unique working environment.
