When you complete the training program, you will be certified in pole-top rescue, as authorized by OSHA stipulations. You will have learned safety procedures for rescuing lineworkers and understand the dangers associated with working with powerlines.

First Aid

This Electrical Lineworker course at our Dallas Metro campus provides certification in First Aid as administered by the American Red Cross1. Training covers common scenarios with the knowledge, skills, experience, and confidence for workers to save lives and respond in emergencies.

CPR

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation is a lifesaving procedure for someone in cardiac arrest. When you are certified in CPR by the American Red Cross2 you will be able to help those who have lost consciousness. CPR can help the heartbeat circulate blood to the brain and other vital organs until emergency workers show up and take over lifesaving procedures.

Climbing

Certification in climbing prepares you to identify problems with overhead and underground powerlines, troubleshoot routine technical problems related to electrical and power distribution, and install, maintain, and repair power lines, transformers, and utility equipment using proper climbing procedures and techniques.

OSHA-10 Card

The OSHA-10 card3 is given to workers in high-risk industries who have completed 10 hours of OSHA outreach training. Electrical lineworkers must complete the training to become OSHA certified, which proves their proficiency in basic knowledge of workplace safety and health standards.

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.
