Technicians Attend SRT Pole Training

Posted: Updated:
When your phone line or internet goes out, there needs to be someone to fix it. That could mean climbing up a pole in order to do it.

That's why there are technicians at SRT Communications in Minot who specialize in that line of work.

In order to become a certified field technician they take a five day crash course to learn the ins and outs of what it means to safely climb up and fix the problem.

"The first day climbing the pole was a little unstable, a little unsure, but every time we go up the pole you feel a little bit more comfortable,” says Scott Scehmidtgal a combination tech.

"Practice makes perfect. So, we try to make sure they have all the tools and the knowledge that they need to go up there and do the job safely,” says Rex Brawley a field operation coordinator

Once you are certified, they do a refresher class every five years.
