Dangerous Job

Linemen have one of the most dangerous jobs in the country. That’s why a strong work ethic, good communication skills, a positive attitude, and of course, physical strength for pole climbing is a must. If you possess these skills and enjoy taking pride in your craftsmanship, then look no further.

The Lineman program trains you to be a high-voltage lineworker utilizing hands-on instruction in indoor and outdoor labs, as well as theory-based curriculum for safety and electricity. 

You must be 18 or older to begin coursework since you will earn your Class A commercial driver’s license (CDL).

Upon completion of this program, you are on your way to becoming a journeyman lineman which will open your world to amazing paths and opportunities. Job placement assistance is available to those who successfully complete the program.

Internship

A key component of the program is the utility internship which allows you to work on-site with industry partners. Learn the job by doing the job.
