Minnkota hosts electrical code training
Minnkota has marked its 32nd year of offering continuing education courses for area electricians.
Minnkota’s Grand Forks Conference Center was filled with nearly 115 electricians from around the region on Tuesday, Feb. 4, and the space was set to welcome more than a hundred more on Feb. 5. Minnkota played host for two days of electrical code credit classes this week, following similar trainings held in Fargo, Fergus Falls and Bemidji in January.
In partnership with its member cooperatives and associated municipals, Minnkota has offered the annual training for 32 years. The cooperative established the program to keep area trade allies up to date on electrical code and best practices, allowing them to gain the required credits to renew their licenses. This year alone, more than 650 electricians were trained across the service area.
The continuing education classes have been historically popular and Minnkota plans to continue offering the courses into the future.
