Quanta customers count on us to add value to their projects by fielding the safest and most skilled workforce in the industry. We deliver by preparing our personnel at the Lazy Q Ranch, our state-of-the-art training facility in La Grange, Texas. On our 2,200-acre campus, employees receive hands-on instruction from master trainers in a controlled environment, focusing on safety, skill development and certifications. Quanta has also partnered with a local university to create a curriculum specific to our industry. Students receive training and are given the opportunity to intern directly with Quanta field leadership on actual projects. The partnership is helping us develop our workforce of the future.
Our linemen train on cutting-edge technology for all transmission structure types up to 345kVs. Our training area is powered by its own generator, completely separate from the power provided for the rest of the ranch. Quanta Energized Services leverages this unique environment, bringing proprietary technology and techniques to our workforce.
The pipeline training area was designed to be flexible. The facilities house steel pipe in all major diameters, a flow loop and underground capabilities for pipeline integrity testing and training. The area also is used for training and method testing to develop custom solutions for challenging projects.
The telecom training area is our newest facility and offers six training programs. The village features a small, simulated neighborhood with homes in various stages of construction and with different types of utilities. This enables development training for all aspects of a telecom project.
