ELECTRIC LINE MECHANIC
Certificate – 1 year
Electric Line Mechanics work for contractors, public utilities, municipal utilities, electric cooperatives and electric transmission
companies installing poles, towers, wires, and cables. They use power equipment to dig holes for installing poles and towers and for
digging trenches to install underground cables and wire. They climb poles and towers or use truck mounted buckets to connect wires,
install transformers and perform maintenance on street lighting systems, electrical distribution, and high voltage transmission lines.
These technicians may also build substations, install circuit breakers, switches, and other equipment required to provide electric service
to residential, commercial and industrial customers. Virtually all work is performed outdoors in all weather conditions. Work can be
physically demanding at times, and students should be able to lift and carry loads up to 70 pounds. Students should feel comfortable
working in elevated locations, sometimes in awkward positions.
