The new program trains people as linemen, giving them a broad skill set they will need to work with power lines. That opens up a host of employment opportunities — everything from work with utility companies to government jobs.
The training is not easy and demands time — 40 hours per week — from students, but the potential rewards are great.
The program has received cooperation from the Career Center and the County Commission.
We applaud everyone who worked to bring this much-needed employment training option to residents here.
