Dennis K. Neitzel, C.P.E, is a certified plant engineer and has 33 years of experience in the electrical field. During eight years with the U.S. Air Force he served consecutively as an electrician, electrical shift supervisor, quality control inspector, and evaluator. Subsequent civilian employment included positions at the Idaho National Engineering Laboratory and at Westinghouse Idaho Nuclear, where he advanced to senior project engineer. Mr. Neitzel went to AVO International Training Institute in 1986 and has progressed from senior training specialist to Institute director. He has served as a principal committee member for NFPA 70E standards since 1992 and is currently working on the revision of OSHA regulations. Mr. Neitzel has published articles on electrical safety, holds a masters degree in electrical engineering applied sciences, and is a certified electrical inspector.
