ELECTRICAL LINE WORKER: 1

  • Electrical Line Worker 1 introduces the student to the electric utility industry and the skills, knowledge, safe work practices and physical ability required to perform line work. Students receive classroom and field training in math, electrical circuit analysis, power systems including Ohm’s Law, AC and DC theory and analysis, generation, transmission and distribution of electrical energy and transformer theory. Climbing techniques are strongly emphasized. Safety and teamwork are demonstrated and emphasized in all phases of training.

ELECTRICAL LINE WORKER: 2

  • The Electrical Line Worker 2 course further prepares the student to enter the electric utility and to the skills, knowledge, safe work practices and physical ability required to perform line work. Students receive classroom and field training in math, electrical circuit analysis, power systems including Ohm’s Law, AC and DC theory and analysis, generation, transmission and distribution of electrical energy and transformer theory. Climbing techniques are strongly emphasized. Safety and teamwork are demonstrated and emphasized in all phases of training.

ELECTRICAL LINE WORKER: 3

  • The Electrical Line Worker 3 course continues to prepare the student to enter the electric utility industry and the skills, knowledge, safe work practices and physical ability required to perform line work. Students receive classroom and field training in math, electrical circuit analysis, power systems including Ohm’s Law, AC and DC theory and analysis, generation, transmission and distribution of electrical energy and transformer theory. Climbing techniques are strongly emphasized. Safety and teamwork are demonstrated and emphasized in all phases of training.

ELECTRICAL LINE WORKER: 4

  • The Electrical Line Worker 4 course prepares the student to enter the electric utility industry as an apprentice with a broad understanding of the skills, knowledge, safe work practices and physical ability required to perform line work. Students receive classroom and field training in math, electrical circuit analysis, power systems including Ohm’s Law, AC and DC theory and analysis, generation, transmission and distribution of electrical energy and transformer theory. Climbing techniques are strongly emphasized. Safety and teamwork are demonstrated and emphasized in all phases of training. Program completers will have an opportunity to demonstrate career-readiness with certification achievement.


INDUSTRY CERTIFICATIONS

  • Students will be provided the opportunity and the knowledge to be prepared for the following industry recognized certifications: OSHA 10, NCCER (waiting on the state to approve more specific industry certifications)


WORK-BASED LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES

  • Students are encouraged to complete WBL experiences with local Power and Electrical businesses. These experiences give the students an opportunity to "test drive" a career. This empowers the student with the knowledge that they love the career or that it may not be for them, allowing them to change course to a career that best fit them. Either way the student will save time and money. If they love it the student will already have experience, contacts, references for the industry allowing them to start earning money sooner and likely at a higher than entry level. If they don't love it the student will not waist any more time pursuing a career that is not a good fit for them.

ADVISORY COMMITTEE

  • The Career and Technical Education Advisory Committees are made up of volunteers who agree to serve as advisors to one or more career and technical programs. Members include representatives from business, labor, community agencies, faculty, students and other members. The primary purpose of advisory committees is to provide direction and guidance for the specific career and technical area within the school to strengthen and enhance the success of CTE programs. By working closely with the business and labor communities, we continue to provide high quality workforce training and education to our students so they will succeed in today's job market.

    The committees support and strengthen the partnership between business, labor, the community, and education. The committees make recommendations that will strengthen and help to expand the curriculum to improve the quality of program(s). Members provide valuable input in areas such as curriculum development, industry relevant certifications, student recruitment and placement, staff development, equipment and software recommendations.
