What Is a Lineworker?


Linemen Put It All on the Line™

A Lineworker in its day-to-day work installs, maintains, and repairs electrical power systems and telecommunication cables, but when a storm hits a lineworker is much more. A lineworker is the first to run toward the storm and put it all on the line to restore power and communications to communities after disaster hits. Which way will you go?


Lineworker Career Opportunities

The electric power and communication industries play critical roles in our society, driving economic growth, productivity, and business development. These industries, collectively worth billions to trillions of dollars, continue to grow at an incredible rate. The electrical industry thrives as the demand for power usage increases, while the telecommunications side grows with the arrival of gig internet and the widespread adoption of 5G wireless networks. Because of this growth there are enormous career opportunities for those wanting to get started in the industry.
