ComEd opens new overhead transmission training center
August 29, 2022
A first of its kind training facility opened its doors under the direction of ComEd this week, extending the possibilities of beginner and refresher training courses for more than 120 of the company’s overhead transmission-focused employees annually in Illinois.
Coursework at the Overhead Transmission Training Center in Sugar Grove, Ill., will span multiple disciplines. It will include crane certifications, live line training, tower rescue training and work with drones, along with practical, on-hands tools training. Students will work at the 65-acre site – about two-thirds of which is currently used for training.
