Lineman Training Program
HCTC Lineman training program
Hazard Community & Technical College's Lineman Training Program has been recognized as the 2016 Workforce Development Award through the Community Colleges of Appalachia for its outstanding placement rate and comprehensive approach to training individuals to enter this growing field. The objective of the program is to provide an opportunity for students to embark on a meaningful and rewarding career in the electrical utility 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.
