Lane Wright of Southwest Public Power District has successfully completed one of the most comprehensive training programs for power line personnel.

The Merchant Job Training and Safety Program is administered to line personnel in 40 states throughout the United States.  The academic program is administered through computers and fax machines for immediate response including assistance through a web site.  Lane, along with the support staff of SWPPD, can be proud of his accomplishment.  Each utility has an acting Training Coordinator assisting their Trainees by administering “closed book” testing.  The coordinators manage their own people throughout the training process from rules set by the MJTS and the statewide association people.

Congratulations to Lane Wright, who can look forward to a very rewarding lifelong occupation.
