Veterans Education Benefits

For individuals looking for a new career after the military, Southeast Lineman Training Center might just be the perfect fit. Linework, with its similar camaraderie, discipline, and service centered mindset, has been a great avenue for a somewhat seamless transition from military service to civilian life.

SLTC is VA approved to certify veterans through various different benefit types, including the Post 9/11 GI Bill and the Skillbridge program for active-duty military members. Visit our Veteran Resources page to learn more.


Financial Aid Options

SLTC students are funded through various different means. Many use student loans or personally fund their education, but there are many options available. Along with financial aid, there are many different scholarships that potential students can apply for. Check out our financial aid page to learn more about your options.


Life on Campus

With over 100 acres of training grounds including classroom space and real world equipment, our campuses offer students a comprehensive and hands-on training environment.


Housing Options

Every class we have students from all over the country, so housing assistance is just another way SLTC helps students prepare for their time here. While housing is not provided by SLTC, we work with the community to provide many options for students to have fully furnished housing for the entirety of their program. Check out your options on our housing page.



“SLTC was a very rewarding 15-week program. The atmosphere created by the instructors and the students was next level. You create a unique bond between your Pole Circle and instructor like nothing I’ve experienced before.”

“The CLP instructors have a wealth of knowledge that they’d love to give to you. They are the best instructors, in my book. You see how much they love the profession itself and it fires you up. Every day they are out there climbing with us, and you want to be good, because they’re good.”
