Sargent & Lundys Power Delivery Services
Group conducts four days of training in substation
design for our clients in the utility industry. Training is
conducted in our Chicago, Illinois office by engineers
engaged in substation design and engineering. Since
the course was first introduced in 1994, it has been
attended by more than 1000 utility professionals from Course Fees...
throughout the United States and overseas.
The 4-day course in Sargent & Lundys Chicago office is
offered at the cost of $1,925. The price will be reduced to
