Course Description

The purpose of this course is to create an awareness of the full-scope process involved in right of way acquisition for electrical transmission projects.

The course provides effective techniques for successful negotiations in the process and exposes right of way agents to what their role may be throughout the process. The course exposes the participants to the idea of “resourcefulness” so that with electrical transmission projects they can recognize a problem when it develops and determine a solution, or know where to go and who to ask for help in finding that solution! The course culminates in a scenario based live team challenge where students apply their new skills and develop critical thinking to solve a real world electrical transmission infrastructure project crisis.

Upon completion of the course, students will pass a 20 question self-assessment to gauge knowledge transfer.
