Apprentice Lineman Training
Not that they will ever have to do this, but just in case; all students must Rubber up the phases from the poles.  This gives them climbing practice while maneuvering around obsticals on the pole.  If they can do it off of a pole, doing it out of a Bucket Truck will be easy.
