"Everyone from the staff to the students wants you to succeed. The respect I received from everyone from day one was amazing. Hands down the best decision I’ve made second to serving in the United States Marine Corps.”

Class 44
"I am a Marine Corps veteran and they helped me tremendously in getting my GI Bill so I could start school without financial difficulties. They are awesome at taking care of veterans!”

Class 53
"Having access to my GI Bill, I literally didn't pay a single dime out of my pocket. Now that I've been through the school, I have made great friendships and it was hands down the best when it comes to training future linemen.”

Once your application is received, you should receive correspondence from us in less than five days regarding your status – although we try very hard to communicate sooner.

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.
