Leaders of the Pack

We believe that in order to be the best you have to be trained by the best. Our instructors have been recruited from various backgrounds in the industry with the same high standards we expect from our students. With an average of 15 years experience under their belts, they understand what it takes to prepare SLTC students to be successful and productive employees after completion of the program. They are all committed to passing down their knowledge to the next generation of lineworkers.

What Goes Around Comes Around

There is a high demand for SLTC graduates in the industry, giving the students who are willing to relocate fantastic career opportunities. Because they understand the value of the Electrical Lineworker Program, former graduates, lineman already in the industry, and HR personnel of utility companies make the majority of our student referrals.

Will I have to relocate to find employment?

Do you guarantee me a job when I'm done or place me in a job?

We do not guarantee a job, but we do offer placement assistance. Many of our graduates have multiple job offers upon completion of the program. Placement depends largely on a person’s willingness to travel or relocate.
