“Transitioning out of the military and back to the civilian workforce can be challenging, but with the help of SLTC staff and the training they provide at the school, my shift was smooth because it allowed me to be confident and prepared for a career in linework when my enlistment comes to an end.”
“If you want to better yourself and be a leg up going into the linework industry, enroll into SLTC.”
“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 school has changed my life dramatically, from living off of unemployment… to coming here and landing, not just a job, but a career.”
“I would highly recommend, for all veterans, getting into line work. It isn’t easy but neither was the Military (Semper Fi). If you’re looking to get a foot in the Power industry I give the school and staff a 10-10!”
“I wanted something rewarding for me and my family and that’s why I chose a change of career [Linework]. A career you can always move up, a career that’s going to be around for a long time, the salary, the pay, and the benefits, your family can be well taken care of.”
SLTC students are funded through various different means. There are many different financial aid options available as well as scholarships that potential students can apply for. Don’t sweat it, check out our financial aid page to learn more about your options.
