Program overview:

Development of basic skills needed to be successful trainees for electrical-related career ladders are emphasized. These skills include: overall safety considerations, power pole climbing skills, knowledge of the basic tools and materials involved with the electrical line crafts, general construction standards, basic rigging principles, and basic electrical theory that is specific to this trade. A 175 hour power pole-climbing certificate of completion is granted to students who successfully complete the course. A component of this course also includes preparation for Civil Service examinations that are likely required for positions at municipal companies.

Los Angeles Trade-Technical College offers various programs for individuals interested in working in the utility industry.  The programs enable individuals to be prepared to take the entry level certification for electrical craft helper and entry in to various Utility Lineman Apprentice Program such as: DWP, SCE, SG&E, PG&E.  It is recommended to begin with the fundamentals certificate of achievement and then move to the larger certificates and then complete the degree programs.  The certificates are stack-able meaning as you reach each level the classes build so you do not have to repeat courses that you have already taken.

January 30, 2015

 

On Friday, January 23, 2015 some of you participated in the first PAT for the Spring 2015 Lineman Class.

 

First and foremost, thank you for your participation. 

 

Second, this class requires great commitment and sacrifice.  We expect you to give it your all.  There is no room for bare minimum in the field you are trying to enter.  That includes attending all classes and arriving on time. Excessive tardiness and absences are cause for exclusion from the class. 

 

Third, you must pass both the classroom portion (worth 50%) as well as the pole climbing portion(worth 50%) of the class in order to successfully complete it and received your certificate.  Failure to complete either portion with a grade of “C” or better will result in an “F” for the whole class.
