founded in 1999

history

Founded in 1999, Southeast Lineman Training Center (SLTC) is the premier training school for lineworker training; consistently producing an elite group of highly trained and certified graduates. We accomplish this through a training style and philosophy that is unlike any other program offered in the country which has earned us an outstanding reputation in the linework industry. Many companies now require applicants to attend SLTC before they will be considered for employment. We offer training courses in electrical and communications line work here on campus through our introductory programs and advanced industry training in Trenton, GA as well as on-site training with companies around the world.

Will I have to relocate to find employment?

Most of our graduates will take jobs with companies that will require them to travel or relocate. However, after experience is gained in the industry you will have more opportunities to get closer to home.

Do you guarantee me a job when I’m done or place me in a job?

We do not guarantee a job, but we do offer placement assistance. Many of our graduates have multiple job offers upon completion of the program. Placement depends largely on a person’s willingness to travel or relocate.
