Why Become an Electrical Lineworker?

There are many reasons why people become electrical lineworkers. They include:

Working Outdoors

Electrical lineworkers work most of their shift in the field. They install, maintain, and repair power lines. To do this, they climb utility poles and perform their job up in the air in work-ready bucket trucks. If you enjoy working out of the office with your hands, consider becoming an electrical lineworker.

Operate Equipment & Machinery

Another part of the job of an electrical lineworker is operating and maintaining heavy machinery. They use cross arms, insulators, conductors, crimp tools, cutters, gaff gauges, lineman pliers, adjustable wrenches, hammers, screwdrivers, telescopic sticks, single-phase transformers, bolt cutters, shovels, and many other electrical lineworker equipment and machinery.

Physical and Mental Strength

Working as an electrical lineworker takes strength and stamina to haul gear, pull thick cables and wires, and climb utility poles. It also takes mental strength to focus on safety for yourself and those around you. Safety first.

Want to Learn More?

Because becoming a lineworker is a hands-on job, technical training is typically required for anyone to enter this field. Many people invest in a trade program to learn the trade skills they need to be safe and effective as professionals. Students will be able to qualify for OSHA-10 certification upon completing this program and receiving a Diploma.
