KENICK announces special class to prep utilities for storm season

Saint Petersburg, FL, Feb. 21, 2007 — KENICK, Inc. announced a special Power Quality training class to help prepare utility employees for the upcoming storm season. The forum, (PQ101), provides utility employees with an understanding of lightning and “surges” as well as how they affect sensitive electronics.

“This is an educational tool designed to train employees as to what surge protection ‘will’ and ‘will not’ do,” says Peter Jackson of KENICK, Inc. “This is very helpful in providing a basic approach toward how electricity works and why surge protection is needed.”

The half-day class is designed for technical and non-technical employees and presents topics in an energetic and understandable format. The class also includes a video of actual surges “blowing up” small appliances.

A similar class is also available for “Basic Electricity.” For more information email
