BC Hydro: Free online electrical awareness training for First Responders.
BC Hydro Public Safety has created a new free online electrical awareness training for First Responders. This training will complement and co-exist with the same training currently provided face to face by the Electrical Energy Training Group.
Important points to note prior to taking the training:
1. Audio is required to complete the course.
2. Allow 45 minutes. Please note there is a 15 minute supplemental course for firefighters only.
3. First time users need to create a new account before taking the course. The log-in page provides a link to set up an account.
4. This course is for awareness only. It is not a certification course.
5. We can accommodate approximately 300 users at any one time.
