By attending a Power Line Interference Workshop Presented by RFI Services’ Michael C Martin

A big part in performing a job safely is eliminating the unnecessary work and only making the repairs it takes to properly complete the task. Eliminate the time consuming and incorrect methods that increase man-hours!

This training is for everyone involved in the process of investigating and solving radio interference (RFI) problems. We provide comprehensive classroom demonstrations, technical and practical explanations from hands on field experience that will reduce the time and expense of locating the causes of interference complaints. The class will locate actual power line interference sources in the field using a variety of methods and equipment (weather permitting). Be a part of the most effective and interesting classroom and field training available.

 You will: Perform the most efficient methods of pinpointing and eliminating power line and customer owned electrical interference problems. Improve your efficiency using your equipment and recognize the difference between inside and outside noise sources starting with the first phone contact. Understand the causes and how to eliminate them. Recognize the complaint source from other noises in the area, eliminating the cost of performing unnecessary repairs. Fix only the problem affecting the customer, not every noise in the area.
