                Participants should have a four year engineering
                degree with college level courses in geometry,

                Course Structure
                The course duration is four and one-half days, with
                the last day concluding at noon. Each morning and
                afternoon session is three hours.

                Each participant will receive a bound set of course
                notes that complement the lectures. The lectures
                closely follow the notes to minimize the need for
                note taking in the class.

                The course will be taught by Siemens PTI consulting
                engineers that have extensive experience in electric
                power systems.
