Training For Employees

EPTCON makes the well-being of our employees a top priority. Our con-tinuing education program ensures that each employee has the knowledge it takes to stay safe in a high-risk industry. Through our own training facilities, and those of our training partners, our employees are well equipped to operate under our strict safety procedures.

  • Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS)
  • Fall Protection
  • Bucket Rescue
  • Pole Top Rescue

  • Powerline Technician Apprenticeship
  • Branch 2 Operator
  • Supervisor Training (in-house)
  • PowerTel H&S Program

Investment in Apprentices

With an aging population comes an increase in retirement figures. As our workforce retires, the need for quality training—in the field and in the classroom—becomes a must.

EPTCON has always taken pride in the quality of groundmen, equipment operators, and linemen that result from our investment in on-the-job training programs and in-class courses. The employees we train become experienced, qualified, knowledgeable, and informed enough to make the right decisions in any situation.
