DEVELOPING INNOVATIVE USER EXPERIENCES
A UTILITY POWER WORKER is a person qualified by education and training to construct, maintain and operate the electrical grid as a lineman, substation worker, meter man or industrial electrician. As the demand for a modernized electrical grid increases, so does the demand for highly skilled utility power workers, whose starting wage can be as much as $25 an hour. Graduates of the Amarillo College program could potentially have their first year of apprenticeship waived by industry.
The Department of Labor, noting high industry-wide attrition due mainly to an aging workforce, projects that qualified utility power workers will be in high demand for many years to come.
AMARILLO COLLEGE OFFERS A CERTIFICATE program that takes approximately 18 months to complete and equips students with climb training, first aid and CPR training, a commercial driver’s license (CDL), and OSHA certification.
It was developed in collaboration with local industry because they know what they need, and it includes internship opportunities with such employers as Xcel Energy, Deaf Smith Electric, Sharyland and more. The program is accepting applications now for classes to be offered in the spring semester (this January) of 2014, however space is limited so interested students are encouraged to enroll now.
Night classes are offered for those who work during the day.
