Apprentice Events 2018

Below are the 2018 Public Power Lineworkers Rodeo Apprentice event descriptions. 

Event 1: Written Test

The 25-minute written test encourages knowledge of safety rules at all times when working in the field and during competitions, such as the Public Power Lineworkers Rodeo. Questions come from specific sections of the 16th edition of the APPA Safety Manual. A high score in this event is crucial for competitors seeking “Overall Apprentice” recognition.

Event 2: Hurtman Rescue

In this event, an individual apprentice rescues a “hurtman” mannequin that is attached to the top of a pole. Event staff will provide groundman support. This annual event reinforces the importance of safety and looking out for each other in the field.
