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.
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.
did you know?
In 2015, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs approved benefits for military veterans going through the line worker programs.
Most lineman apprenticeships are 7,000 hours, which equals four years of full-time training and instruction.
Line crews across the country are aging, and it's essential to groom their replacements. Labor stats indicate the demand for linemen is expected to grow by 9 percent through 2022.
Daily responsibilities of a Lineman might include digging trenches to install underground lines, installing meters, climbing poles to repair overhead lines or inspecting power lines for possible repair or replacement. A Lineman will work mainly for utility companies, energy companies or telecommunications companies.
