The Lineworker Apprenticeship program is designed to provide related technical instruction for students currently employed as apprentice lineworkers in the power transmission and distribution industry. A lineworker constructs, maintains, and repairs the transmission and distribution network required to deliver electric power to customers. The program covers topics related to construction, maintenance, and operation of underground and overhead electrical systems including:

  • AC and DC electrical theory
  • Safety protocols required when working with electricity
  • Climbing wooden poles and other structures
  • Transformer theory and transformer connections
  • Ropes and rigging
  • Grounding
  • Switchgear and metering
  • Working on energized lines
