KICK-START YOUR CAREER AS A LINEWORKER

Are you interested in becoming a lineworker? If you’re new to the trade, you’ll start out as an apprentice. Apprentice lineworkers generally need at least a high school diploma or equivalent and a driver’s license. For more information, find a Joint Apprentice Training Center, or JATC, in your area. JATCs are responsible for training lineworkers employed by local unions. 

As a JATC apprentice, you’ll learn to build, repair and maintain powerlines and overhead structures. Apprentices receive paid, on-the-job training and pay increases with each step of the program. Upon completion, journeyman lineworkers have skills they can use to work in markets across the country.
