4 Reasons Why You Should Attend The Communications Lineworker Program
Since our beginning in 1999, Southeast Lineman Training Center has been known for our popular and sought-after Electrical Lineworker Program (ELP). However, did you know that we offer a unique and one-of-a-kind program focused on communications?
Our Communications Lineworker Program (CLP), established in 2016, provides students with the knowledge, discipline, and abilities needed to begin a career in the communications linework industry. From tower work to splicing fiber, our graduates have gone on to many unique and exciting careers. They are now the individuals who help keep you connected and are laying the groundwork for things like autonomous vehicles and drone delivery.
But why should it matter to you?
The communications industry is in dire need of new and qualified workers. With a $65 billion dollar allocation of funds in the newest infrastructure bill going into communications and expanding internet access across the country, more work is needed than ever before.
This is where you come in.
You have the potential to start a new career in one of the highest paying trades out there!
Check out these four reasons below as to why you should attend the Communications Lineworker Program.
It’s Only 8 Weeks Long
Attending school can take time to master a skill or earn a degree, resulting in leaving your family and friends or a paycheck for long periods during the year. At SLTC, we understand the importance of how valuable someone’s time is. Our Communications Lineworker Program is only 8 weeks long and is offered 5 times a year. Unlike any other 4 year school or program, the CLP allows you to learn everything about the communications lineworker trade in 2 months and have you on your way to starting a new fulfilling career.
Low Cost + Financial Aid
Schooling of any kind can be expensive and shouldn’t be a factor preventing you from obtaining an education. Coming in at only $10,995, the Communications Lineworker Program is much cheaper than 4-year degrees and even our electrical program. But, if you find yourself worrying about paying that cost up front, SLTC offers financial aid assistance with loans, scholarships, and programs such as the SkillBridge Program and Post 9/11 – GI Bill.
A High Paying Career
A question that a lot of people may have in regards to choosing the Communications Lineworker Program is how much money can someone make after training. Working as a communications lineworker allows you to work more standard hours while still receiving great pay! The average salary for someone working in this field is around $62,250 with more room to grow. Many of our CLP graduates end up making more than that and some even go on to start their own companies!
Certifications That Make You Stand Out
What makes our Communications Lineworker Program so exciting is that we have added more certifications than any other program like it. Every student will receive their Class A CDL which is becoming a requirement in the industry. You also will go through a fiber optic splicing certification course and have the opportunity to take a crane operator elective after graduation.
There are many benefits of choosing to attend our Communications Lineworker Program, and these are only some of them. The CLP is very important to linework and the need for skilled workers has significantly increased with the push to expand access to high-speed internet across the country.
