Linemen earn college certificates at Nash Community College

Linemen earn college certificates at Nash Community College
Electric cooperative linemen take part in job training and safety courses at Nash Community College and can earn college credit at the same time.

Eleven linemen associated with North Carolina's electric cooperatives this spring received certificates for completing course work in Electric Lineman Technology through Nash Community College. The program is offered by the North Carolina Association of Electric Cooperatives at the campus and training field in Nash County. Courses include classroom and outdoor training in such skills as overhead line construction, underground line construction and the National Electrical Safety Code.

These linemen join 83 other co-op linemen in the state who have completed these courses.

Students who complete 65 college credits earn an Associate Degree in Electric Lineman Technology. Beyond classes in line work and energy management, courses toward the Associate Degree range from writing and math to critical thinking, computers and communication. Nine co-op linemen in recent years earned the associate degree.

For more information about the college degree program, contact the North Carolina Association of Electric Cooperatives at (919) 875-3068.
