Hazard Community & Technical College is proud to announce that we have added the Lineman Training Program to the Workforce Solutions Department. The objective of the Lineman Training Program is to provide an opportunity for students to embark on a meaningful and rewarding career in the electrical line work industry. This is accomplished with the use of proven training methods by instructors with extensive experience in the utility industry. Upon completion of the class, our students are prepared to enter and be successful in the Line Utility Industry.
Careers in this industry consist of working in conditions such as rain, sleet, snow, dark of night and high winds. Most available positions in this industry are not local, so applicants need to be willing to relocate. All work stations are at an elevated level, so if you have a fear of heights, this career may not be for you. Safety is of the highest priority in this industry so you must always be aware of high voltage areas. This program is offered twice during the calendar year, typically in March and August. Through this program, students will receive:
288 Hours of Lineman Instruction
160 Hours of CDL Class A Training
OSHA 10-Hour Course
8-Hour Work Zone and Flagging Course
Three Fiber Optic Certifications
Next tentative date for Spring of 2017 is March 6. For more information contact Keila Miller at 487-3287.
