The Calpine team attended the introduction to Grounding and Earthing course provided by E&S Grounding Solutions. The course comprised of two online sessions of two hours each. The presenters David and Jeffrey have a very relaxed style that engaged the team to participate and ask questions. The course covers the basic concepts of grounding and is a good introduction to subject. The presenters develop the concepts throughout the presentation which helps in the understanding of this complex topic. I recommend this course for people of all technical abilities who want to gain an understanding of the basics of Grounding & Earthing.

Calpine Corporation

E&S Grounding instructors David Stockin and Jeffrey Drummond have strong theoretical and practical backgrounds in grounding for industrial, utility and generating plant applications, but more importantly they are effective teachers. Our employees and extended enterprise customers have benefits their deep understanding of basic grounding concepts, safety considerations, field testing and troubleshooting and advanced engineering concepts.

The Petro Guardian team recently had the opportunity to bring in the E&S Grounding Solutions team for training and we appreciated the flexibility their course offered. The E&S team adapted their curriculum to meet our unique needs, which kept our group engaged and attentive throughout the entire class. They were able to take advanced subject matter, like 3-point fall-of potential and ground loop testing, and present it in a way that was understandable by employees no matter what their experience level may have been. My team and I would highly recommend the E&S Grounding Solutions team and we look forward to working with them again in the future.
