Power line contractors and utility companies are facing a severe shortage of line workers to fill their future needs. But to reach the level of journeyman, a worker typically spends 3 ½ to 5 years learning and training.
The early stages are filled with developing the basic skills and fundamentals on which the whole trade is built. Without these fundamental skills, success is not possible. So GPLA has designed and developed a lineman training pre-apprenticeship program to meet the needs for teaching these fundamentals to the next generation of essential line workers.

GPLA taught me how to effectively climb, which is the foundation of entering the electric utility field. I learned the basics of setting poles, framing poles, and working on lines. The skills I learned at GPLA helped me get a foot in the door with an electrical contractor, which evolved into a getting a career at an electric utility company.
