The course materials consist of three parts: (1) a slide show: Steel Gallery Featuring Utility Poles, which covers the basics of steel utility poles and their advantages over the wood poles; (2) a Power Point presentation: Design & Testing of Steel Poles, which provides the detailed information on current design standards, load and strength factors, and the performance of the steel utility poles; and (3) Frequently Asked Questions regarding steel utility poles. This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
