Relay Tech Training Program Bundle

Utility relay technicians are the backbone of a reliable utility. Unfortunately, finding and keeping relay techs is also one of a utility’s biggest challenges. How do you quickly and effectively train a new hire so they are a productive member of your team? And, once they are up to speed, how do you retain them? As one of the industry’s top training companies, we have designed a program overcome these challenges. Our Relay Tech Training Program focuses on the fundamentals and provides progressive training to give your techs a defined career path.

Training for Reliability and Retention
According to the Wynhurst Group, an executive coaching and consulting firm, employees who participate in a structured onboarding program are 58% more likely to remain with the organization after three years. Our program provides a structured, fundamental curriculum to quickly get your new hires up to speed quickly. Using a systematic approach to training, new hires learn what they need to know before they begin your company-specific training. As your employees progress through their career path, our program provides advanced training, including simulation, to ensure the highest level of performance. Statistics show 40% of employees leave within the first year because of poor training. Our Relay Tech Training Program is a step toward retaining your employees.

Our program consists of:
Level 1 – The Fundamentals – training designed to introduce your new hires to the electric utility industry and provide a foundation for your company-specific training. This training is appropriate for new hires with no electrical or relaying experience
Level 2 – The Next Step – training for new hires or technician candidates who may have a good understanding of electrical theory, applications, and related math
Level 3 – Advanced – includes simulation training so your experienced relay techs can get hands on training with a variety of scenarios
