AVON PARK, Fla. – Oct. 19, 2017 – South Florida State College’s Hardee Campus recently received the donation of a TEREX International 7400 Hi-Ranger materials handler from the Peace River Electric Cooperative. Chris Yeomans (left), professor, Electric Distribution Technology, accepted the bucket-style truck from Van Crawford, vice president of operations for PRECO. Hardee students are learning to operate the truck and are using it to master skills in building and frame single and three-phase overhead lines, maintain transformers, and practice pole top and bucket rescue techniques. SFSC’s electrical line service repair program trains students to work as electrical line service technicians. Students are being accepted into spring term classes that begin Jan. 3.
