A new year is the time for resolutions and new beginnings. While electrical safety may not top resolution lists, it should. Now is the perfect time to brush up on your electrical safety knowledge, so you and your loved ones can stay safe this year.

AEP wants to help and has developed an interactive, online module focused on electrical safety. The e-learning experience narrates and navigates you through a variety of interactive learning exercises, video clips and knowledge check questions. Whether you’re a school-aged child or even an engineer, the module offers something for everyone.   All you need is about an hour, a computer and Internet access. Just click and let the learning begin.   Give it a try. What do you have to lose? You might end up learning something that could prevent an electrical accident.      Note: The module will ask for some login information. This information will not be shared and only will be used to document users of the training.     AEP - American Electric Power
