 Electric Power Training Center (EPTC)


  Western's Media Line: 720-962-7411

​​Welcome to the Electric Power Training Center. We are devoted to providing the highest quality power system operations training. Our courses are designed for a wide range of audiences, from power plant operators, to dispatchers, or anyone else with an interest in learning about the principles and operation of power generation, transmission and interconnected system operations. In addition to our excellent instruction staff, we are equipped with powerful simulation tools, including the unique Miniature Power System (MPS). The MPS is a self-contained, fully operational power system simulator with over 40 full-size panels of operator controls. It includes three generators, a wind farm, four substations, many hundreds of miles of transmission lines, a dispatch center, and a variety of loads spread throughout the system.

Waiting List  

 

Often our classes fill to capacity, and you will therefore see a FULL note on a particular class. If the class you want happens to be FULL, please contact us to be placed on a waiting list. If there is a cancellation, chances are you can be placed into the class. If there is enough interest in a FULL class, we may schedule another class.

EPTC's Cancellation Policy  

Cancellations made 45 days or more before the start of a course will be refunded in full. After this deadline, cancellations will be charged the full tuition unless a substitution for the same class is made.

 

If enough interest is not generated in a certain class, the EPTC reserves the right to either cancel or reschedule the training.  Please keep this in mind when booking your travel.
