In this lesson, you will learn the construction practices that will guide
you in surface construction, buried and railroad construction, aerial
construction on poles and A-frames, tension bridges, how to secure and
identify cables, and the line route map.
TERMINAL LEARNING OBJECTIVE:
You will learn how to install cable in surface, buried,
railroad crossing, aerial on poles, and aerial on A-frames.

Cable construction is a very complex and tedious task that must be completed
to install the many systems commanders desire in the field. It is your job,
as a wire systems installer, to construct the cable line in a quick, safe,
and correct manner. The procedures you will learn in this lesson will guide
you in the proper construction methods you should use.
